Appleton Post-Crescent, Nov. 29
Walgreen Co.'s revenue from established stores rose 3.2 percent last month compared to November 2012, when a wave of generic drugs hurt the top-line of the nation's largest drugstore chain.
OKLAHOMA CITY - Gov. Mary Fallin said Monday that state agency heads should be looking for ways to save money in next year's budget, given reports of lackluster tax collections to Oklahoma's general revenue fund and the more than $60 million increase in mandatory health care spending the state will bear next year.
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana - Attorney General Buddy Caldwell says 25 pharmaceutical companies and their subsidiaries will pay the state $88 million to resolve allegations they charged the state's Medicaid program too much for their drugs.
NEW YORK - New Yorkers buying a health plan on the state's new insurance exchange should read the fine print if they're interested in getting care at some of the city's top hospitals.
GREELEY, Colorado - A quarter-million Coloradans have gotten health insurance cancellation notices; many are complaining about higher premiums in many rural areas; and a new poll reflects deep skepticism in the state about the new health care law.
PITTSBURGH - A western Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to prison for stealing her parents' identities so she could fraudulently obtain $729,000 in student loans - much of which she used to pay for plastic surgery.
WASHINGTON - Growth in global prescription drug spending will slow to the lowest rate in decades as low-cost generic drugs continue replacing former blockbusters in the U.S. and Europe, where governments face new pressure to reduce health care spending, according to a new forecast.
PHOENIX - The cost of a drug often prescribed to treat patients with valley fever is on the rise.
GARY, Indiana - McKindra Gibbs is an adjunct instructor at Ivy Tech Community College. Since 2011, she had received health insurance through her dad's plan under a provision of the Affordable Care Act allowing children under the age of 26 to stay on their parents' plans.
CHICAGO - For Shonn Hild, a landscaper from Sullivan, Illinois, the controversy over Americans losing their health insurance plans, despite a promise by President Barack Obama, is frustrating and personal. For Jon Gabel, a University of Chicago health care researcher, the surprise is not the mass cancellations, but any nostalgia for the individual insurance market before the president's overhaul.
SACRAMENTO, California - A union representing health care workers is seeking to put two initiatives on next year's November ballot that would restrict salaries at nonprofit hospitals and limit how much those hospitals can charge patients.
