In a publication Feb. 1, senior financial editor of HealthLeaders Media Christopher Cheney addresses the consequences of Texas’ refusal to expand Medicaid. Increasing pressures on primary care through the taxes imposed by the Affordable Care Act on healthcare organizations and the five-year annual decrease in Medicare Advantage reimbursement, which continues for two more years, resulting in a 28 percent decrease, in reimbursement, continues to decrease the ability of providers to care for our most vulnerable citizens.

Odie is a 5-year-old dish found running the roads in Beaumont. His coat looks like a Dreamsicle with its beautiful markings. Odie is a talker and loves to have morning talks while you prepare his breakfast. He enjoys watching the birds out the window during the day. Not big on toys but litter box trained, we think he would be great in any home. He loves to sit in your lap and have his ears scratched. If you want a big handsome boy, go on down to the shelter before someone else snatches him up.

Ginger, 4-month old Corgi mix puppy

You will fall for Ginger in a snap! This cute cookie is a 4-month old, 11-pound Corgi mix pup. Ginger’s owners surrendered her to our shelter because they did not want to housetrain a puppy. This takes a little patience and creativity! She has a beautiful golden-blond, medium-length coat, and cute, fluffy tufts of fur on her ears. She most likely will remain a fairly small dog. Ginger is affectionate and fun to cuddle. She is as playful and fun as any pup could be.
