Stethoscope Market to hit new heights

COVID-19 fed the markets for many markets: online delivery, healthcare, and even the stethoscope market. Current research shows the stethoscope market is expected to reach $ 1,040.1 Million by 2031 which is up from a current value of $612.9 million.

Adults with Down syndrome often treated like kids in healthcare

The United States has three times as many individuals with Down syndrome today than it did in 1970, but stigmas remain. In the United States, only 15 Down-specific medical programs exist outside of children’s hospitals. Indivuduals now live longer because of medical advancements, but are prone to chronic issues like Alzheimers, severe sleep apnea, and obesity. As a result, more conprehessive care is usually needed - care that they aren't always getting.

Millions of New Yorkers could lose Medicaid coverage

Millions of New Yorkers were protected from losing their Medicaid coverage during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that benefit ran out April 1 when eligibility checks resumed. Now 9 million residents must race to prove that they meet the income requirements to keep their coverage. In response, the state has increased income eligibility levels for children, the elderly, and those with disabilities.
