Trans 'refugees’ flock to New Mexico

New Mexico has become a haven for trans people seeking care due to increased LGBTQ protection and trans specific care opportunities. When T. Michael Trimm started working at the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico in late 2020, he said the center received two or three calls a month from people looking to move to the state. Now, they receive one or two a week. “We’ve had folks from as far away as Florida and Kentucky and West Virginia,” Trimm said in an interview.

10 million disenrolled from Medicaid

Ten million eligible Americans have been disenrolled from Medicaid over the past six months, according to a KFF tracker. Most were dropped because their eligibility was not automatically renewed by the state or because they did not complete the necessary forms for renewal. States are expected to take a year to 14 months to reenroll Medicaid members.

Cleveland Clinic earns most A grades

The Cleveland Clinic earned the most “A” grades for patient safety in the Greater Cleveland area in the Leapfrog Group’s fall 2023 Hospital Safety Grades. High marks were given for preventing hospital infections, ensuring effective communication between staff and patients. The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade System assigns letter grades to nearly 3,000 U.S. hospitals twice a year.
