MIDLOTHIAN, Va., March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement written by Mark Hobraczk on behalf of PSI:
In this week's Patient Services, Inc. (PSI) Health Reform Update, the Obama Administration further delays key Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions. States can now extend ACA-deficient individual health plans until 2017 and the employee choice option under small business Marketplaces until 2016.
The Senate Finance Committee has upped the pressure on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) not to finalize controversial Medicare Part D changes. CMS did finalize rules this week for the ACA's delayed Basic Health Plan option, though most states remain uninterested.
Conservatives in the Arkansas House formally renewed that state's private sector alternative to the ACA's Medicaid expansion, after holding out for concessions. New Hampshire Senate conservatives dropped their opposition this week to comparable alternative. For the second time, CMS rejected a partial expansion alternative sought by South Dakota.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
