Bloomberg MEDLINE SUED OVER RELIGIOUS, MEDICAL EXEMPTION DENIALS: Former employees of Northfield-based Medline Industries are suing the company for allegedly and unlawfully denying them religious and medical exemptions to a COVID-19 vaccine mandate that resulted in them being fired last November. Five individual lawsuits were filed this month in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern Division of the Northern District of Illinois by former employees across Mississippi, Georgia, Michigan, Texas and Iowa against the medical supply company. The complaints allege that Medline, one of the Chicago area's largest privately held companies, violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. According to the lawsuits against Medline, the company announced in August 2021 that all customer-facing employees were required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 1, 2021, or lose their jobs. According to the suits, Medline denied virtually all religious and medical accommodation requests and did not provide employees with accommodations, saying unvaccinated employees were unable to do their jobs and that any given accommodation would pose "undue hardship" to Medline. Medline declined to comment to Crain's on pending litigation and has yet to file responses to the cases in court. READ MORE. AMA ROUNDUP: Among the subjects that the physicians of the American Medical Association's house of delegates took on this week in Hawaii were daylight savings time, physician burnout and parental leave, equity and diversity, and opioid harm prevention. The house met for the nation's largest doctors' association's annual interim meeting, where numerous policy pronouncements are hashed over and voted upon. Here's a glance at some of them: • With private-equity ownership of health care organizations growing, the AMA wants to protect medical education training programs from being compromised by a hospital's fiduciary responsibilities to an external corporate or for-profit entity. Delegates pointed to the prospect of abrupt facility closures or other changes as pitfalls to private equity owning graduate medical education facilities. The AMA policy passed this week affirms that clinical training sites should not be compromised by private-equity ownership. The policy also calls for publicly funded independent research on the impact that private equity has on graduate medical education. • Delegates also want America's drug laws to focus more on lifesaving than on busting addicts. AMA passed a policy to "encourage state and county medical societies to advocate for harm-reduction policies that provide civil and criminal immunity for the possession, distribution and use of 'drug paraphernalia' like drug-contamination testing kits, like fentanyl test strips, and injection-drug preparation, use and disposal supplies." • Two different policies attempt to promote equity and diversity in the medical field. The AMA wants to expand pathway programs to help young students from historically marginalized racial and ethnic groups, even as early as middle school, to discover the possibility of growing up to be a doctor. And for medical students, delegates adopted a new policy to encourage medical schools, medical honor societies, and residency and fellowship programs to work toward ethical, equitable and transparent recruiting processes, made available to all applicants. The policy also encourages the study of the impact of using filters in the Electronic Residency Application Service by program directors on the diversity of entrants into residency. And it cautions medical schools and residency/fellowship programs when using new online assessments for sampling personal characteristics for the purpose of admissions or selection and monitor use and validity of these tools. • AMA delegates also back stronger leave policies for medical students and doctors, including encouraging employers to provide 12-week parental leave policies for residents and doctors, "with the understanding that no parent should be required to take a minimum leave." • Another policy calls on the AMA to study the advantages and disadvantages of an online medical school interview option for future medical school applicants. The pandemic allowed virtual residency interviews, but prior to graduate medical education (GME) interviews going virtual, medical students were spending as much as $11,000 on travel, with a typical student spending $4,000, the AMA said. • The AMA supports ending daylight saving time and shifting to a standard time, pointing to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and others who claim a health benefit in the switch. "For far too long, we've changed our clocks in pursuit of daylight, while incurring public health and safety risks in the process. Committing to standard time has health benefits and allows us to end the biannual tug of war between our biological and alarm clocks," AMA Trustee Dr. Alexander Ding, a diagnostic and interventional radiologist said. PUBLIC HEALTH, PEDIATRICS DOCTORS RAISE THE ALARM, URGE FLU SHOTS: Physician leaders from the Illinois and Chicago departments of public health and Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics Thursday joined pediatric physicians from Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Advocate Children's Hospital, Comer Children's, Loyola Medicine, Rush University System for Health and UI Health with an urgent plea for everyone who is eligible to get the flu vaccine ahead of the coming flu season. While peak flu season has yet to begin, pediatricians and children's hospital are already under a burden from an especially strong surge of RSV, and physicians at Thursday's press conference emphasized that there's something that can be done to avoid a surge of flu—vaccinate. "We haven't had an influenza season since early 2020. Influenza essentially went away for the last two and a half years, and so we have a huge population of infants—essentially almost every child in the U.S. who is under 2 and a half to 3 years old—who has not encountered influenza, and the vaccine rate is not particularly good," Dr. Larry Kociolek, medical director of infection, prevention and control and infectious diseases physician at Lurie Children's said in explaining that this season promises to bring back influenza with a vengeance. In the press conference, doctors also provided guidance on when to seek care in an emergency room, pediatrician office, immediate care or virtual/telemedicine appointment. HUMIRA TO STAY ON OPTUM RX LIST, BUT BIOSIMILARS ARRIVING TOO: AbbVie's blockbuster drug Humira will remain available to members of UnitedHealth Group's pharmacy benefits manager alongside up to three other similar medications, as one of the world's top-selling treatments faces its first competitors in the U.S. next year. The decision disclosed by Heather Cianfrocco, chief executive of UnitedHealth's Optum Rx unit at the HLTH conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday, is at least a partial win for AbbVie. The company's rheumatoid arthritis treatment Humira has generated almost $200 billion in sales in nearly two decades on the market. Competing versions from other manufacturers, known as biosimilars, are set to debut in the U.S. in 2023, giving prescription drug plans a chance to pit different suppliers against one another for discounts. UnitedHealth's Optum Rx unit is the third-largest U.S. pharmacy benefit manager, managing $112 billion in drug spending last year. The company said the biosimilars will be on the formulary in the same position as Humira. Optum Rx is the first to detail what its approach to the drugs will be once Humira faces rival medicines. Investors have been bracing themselves for a steep decline in Humira sales next year. AbbVie has been assuring them the damage won't be that bad, at least right away, since Humira will likely remain on formularies alongside biosimilars similar to the arrangement Optum detailed Tuesday.

THE OBSTACLES HOSPITALS PUT IN THE WAY: In writing about how some nonprofit hospital make it hard for needy patients to get aid, the Wall Street Journal puts the story of Advocate Aurora Health patient Ashley Harrison of Hazel Crest front and center. Originally Harrison didn't get financial assistance from Advocate Aurora Health and the process to get aid wasn't easy. The Journal article points out that, in exchange for substantial tax breaks, nonprofits must have financial-assistance policies for needy patients, but that some put up obstacles. MILLENNIUM TRUST NAMES NEW CEO: Retirement and financial services firm Millennium Trust named its next CEO today as it prepares for a new era after signing a deal to buy PayFlex from CVS Health earlier this year. Millennium Trust, based in Oak Brook, promoted Dan Laszlo to chief executive, effective immediately. He previously served as the company's chief operating and chief financial officers.
