************************************************
Transportation Study: Since 2015 the four Economic Development Corporations in Liberty County have met each quarter to address issues effecting economic growth in the county. Those cities of Liberty, Dayton, Cleveland, and Liberty County make up this group. Recently Liberty County applied for and received a $500,000 grant from the Houston-Galveston Area Council for a comprehensive traffic and transportation study. Liberty County Judge Jay Knight, on kshn.com’s Partyline program, said in order for TXDOT to approve funds for a Highway project they require a written plan. Judge Knight said the cities contributed $10,000 each with the county adding an additional $20,000 to meet the required 10% match for this grant. At the last quarterly meeting of the EDC’s that were held in Cleveland, maps of the county and each of the cities were given out so each city could mark their current traffic problems along with traffic issues they anticipate in the future. The Co. Judge said the traffic and transportation issues will not be fixed over night, but the HGAC study will help address the transportation issues of this growing county.
************************************************
Flu: With flu season upon us and the number of reported cases growing, medical officials have several pieces of information to share. First, as we have all heard, get a flu shot. While it may not stop everyone from getting the flu, if you do, it should lesson the severity. Another tip from the experts, wash your hands often, cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze, and, here is a very important one – stay home if you are sick. Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center CEO, Matt Thornton, a recent guest on a kshn.com Partyline program, said just because you believe you can tough it out and still go to work that does not mean you should. The Center for Disease Control reports Texas is experiencing a widespread outbreak of flu. Now, the really bad news, during this flu season the CDC estimates there have been more than 2100 deaths nationwide, diagnosed as influenza.
************************************************
Surprise medical bill protections: Texas Senate Bill 1264 is designed to help end surprise medical bills. This legislation went into effect Wednesday, January 1st. What it says is a bit confusing, even to those who sell health coverage insurance. The new law mandates that the non-network physician or provider can no longer bill the patient. In addition the new law say’s the patient has no financial responsibility for an amount greater than called for in the patient's health care plan. That includes an applicable copayment, coinsurance or deductible. In other words, it appears as if those surprise bills that so many have received, may no longer be sent to the patient. These new state protections won’t apply to every insured Texan. SB 1264 only applies to those with a state-regulated insurance plan. Also it is important to note the new bill is not retroactive – in other words –patients over billed before the new law became effective on January 1st will not be helped by this legislation but that patient might qualify for mediation through the Texas Department of Insurance. Find out if that statement prior to January 1st qualifies to be heard by the Texas Department of Insurance. Simply go to their website –The address is tdi.texas.gov or you can call 1-800-252-3439
