Best Medical Stocks To Invest In 2019

Kentucky will now require many of its Medicaid recipients to work for their benefits, the first time ever a state has been permitted to impose such a provision.

The state announced Friday that it received federal approval to mandate certain Medicaid enrollees to hold jobs or participate in other employment activities for 80 hours a month. The decision came a day after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services unveiled guidelines for states to file for work requirement waivers, an historic and controversial step that consumer advocates say will leave many more Americans uninsured.

Kentucky also can start charging its Medicaid enrollees monthly premiums ranging from $1 to $15, depending on income, and suspend some of those who fall behind in payments. The state will also provide recipients with a high-deductible health savings account, which it will fund, and offer incentives to purchase additional benefits, such as dental and vision coverage.

The work requirement, which will take effect in July, will apply to all able-bodied, working-age adults who are not pregnant, medically frail, full-time students or primary caregivers of dependents. About 350,000 Kentucky residents will be subject to this mandate, but about half of them already have jobs or are in other activities that would satisfy the requirement.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Berkshire Hathaway isn’t just betting on a digital payments company: Paytm’s torrid growth reminds me of Amazon and how it wants to be pretty much everywhere. To give you an idea, here are just some of the areas Paytm has already made forays into:

    Paytm Wallet — offers a gamut of wallet services, including travel, event, and entertainment ticketing. Paytm claims to sell nearly 4 million air, rail, and bus tickets monthly, giving India’s largest online travel aggregator, MakeMyTrip (NASDAQ:MMYT) a run for its money. For perspective, MakeMyTrip sold around 72.9 million air and bus tickets in fiscal 2018. Paytm aims to double its ticketing volumes in fiscal 2019. On a separate note, Softbank (NASDAQOTH:SFTBY) — one of Paytm’s stakeholders — is teaming up with the company to launch digital payment services in Japan. Paytm Mall — already the third-largest e-commerce company in India after Amazon and Flipkart. Paytm Mall generated annualized gross sales worth $3.5 billion in June, according to Livemint; the company is targeting $10 billion in annualized sales by March 2019. Alphabet’s Google is now reportedly eyeing a partnership with Paytm Mall to buy a stake in India’s largest retailer, Future Group, and join the hot hypermarket and online-grocery race in India. Paytm Payments Bank — one of only 11 such banks in India to get a payments bank license. This allows it to offer restricted banking services such as low-cost savings accounts, deposits, cards, and fund transfers, primarily targeting India’s “unbanked and underbanked” population. Paytm Money — a mutual fund distribution platform that will start operations soon. Financial services — expanded offerings including loans, insurance, gold, and foreign exchange. Paytm aims to become the world’s “largest digital bank,” with 500 million accounts, according to Bloomberg. Paytm Inbox — a messaging service app akin to Facebook’s WhatsApp that also allows money transfer, and will soon offer live television, ga
