UroToday.com – In our recent article published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, we used statistical modeling to make the first-reported estimate of the extent to which treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) affects erection maintenance directly versus indirectly via erection hardness. Because erection maintenance (along with erection hardness) is a physiologic requirement for satisfactory sexual performance, our aim was to guide treatment goals toward optimizing erection maintenance and therefore achieving successful sexual intercourse.

New drugs for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are usually tested in clinical trials where patients are recently diagnosed and have not been treated with medications other than the standard therapy. Whether patients with long-standing disease or who have failed to respond to a range of treatments will benefit is often unknown. Lack of evidence of a drug’s efficacy in this situation, coupled with the expense in the case of some new agents, can make doctors unwilling to try them. This is especially the case if patients have not responded well to other disease-modifying treatments in the past.

The Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed new rules to help states reduce improper payments for Medicaid health care claims through the use of Medicaid Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) as part of the Affordable Care Act’s larger strategy to crack down on waste, fraud and abuse in the health care system. Medicaid RACs are contractors, working for States, that will audit payments made to health care providers to identify Medicaid payments that may have been underpaid or overpaid, and recover overpayments or correct underpayments, similar to the RAC program in Medicare.
