... InsureBlog. Tuesday, November 17, 2009. Health insurance reform is about give and take. The tax credit, which is supposed to pay individuals up to $400 and couples up to $800, was President Barack Obama's signature tax break in the massive stimulus package enacted in February. They want to assess health insurance companies, drug companies and medical device makers to pay for health insurance for the poor. Medical devices like pacemakers and wheelchairs will become more expensive which will result in higher costs to the consumer and health insurance company. And that tax on health insurance companies. As health insurance premiums rise, to cover the cost of new taxes, higher prices for medication, pacemakers and wheelchairs those plans are in danger of becoming a "Cadillac" plan. So just like the government is giving us a break by lowering our withholding taxes and tossing a bone to Social Security beneficiaries, then ...

The prevalence of obesity has been rising dramatically in the U.S., leading to poor health and rising health care expenditures. The role of policy in addressing rising rates of obesity, however, is controversial. Policy recommendations for interventions intended to influence body weight decisions often assume the obesity creates negative externalities for the non-obese. We build on earlier work demonstrating that this argument depends on two important assumptions: 1 that the obese do not pay for their higher medical expenditures through differential payments for health care and health insurance, and 2 that body weight decisions are responsive to the incidence of medical care costs associated with ...

*  All About Pet Insurance
... Catster. Health Care. All About Pet Insurance. Pet health insurance is just that: a health insurance policy for your pet. But what does pet health insurance cover. Pet insurance works differently from most human health insurance policies. Instead of paying a co-pay, you typically pay the vet bill and file a claim for reimbursement. Certain insurance plans such as those offered through vet hospital chains, may offer a co-pay system, but the disadvantage of these proprietary plans is that you cannot get reimbursement for care outside of that veterinary hospital chain. Most pet insurance policies cover routine and emergency vet visits, medications, X-rays, and lab tests. Pet insurance typically covers at least the majority of costs associated with more advanced diagnostic tests such as CT or MRI scans as well. However, no pet insurance plan will cover pre-existing conditions, so if your kitten already ...

Chances are, up until now you've been covered by your parents' health insurance. Health insurance is a plan that people buy into in return for coverage on all kinds of medical care. The idea behind insurance is simple: Medical care can be so expensive that most people can't pay for it entirely out of their own pockets. This is the way most people in the United States get their health insurance. It is also usually the least expensive option, since employers often help pay for part of the insurance.

... Wednesday, December 8, 2010. Another health insurance miracle. Thanks to our cracker jack insurance agent, Dick Lucier of Diversified Benefits, we're expecting to have new health insurance coverage come January 1st, 2011. When Bernadette arrived, we added her to our existing policy, but Johnny thought it might be a good idea to contact Dick to see if there might be a better option for us. I can't imagine wading through all of that insurance jargon in order to find the best policies for our family - but Dick jumps right in and makes everything better. So if Dick can perform health insurance miracles he found health coverage for this lupite, after all, why doesn't everyone use him, or someone like him. I thought of two reason, both of which seem to have a bit of crossover when it comes to lupus: 1 Skepticism - So what does Dick get out of the whole deal. Not only are we able to figure out the best health coverage for our family, I'm ...

(1/2176) Legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon--the first year's experience.

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: On October 27, 1997, Oregon legalized physician-assisted suicide. We collected data on all terminally ill Oregon residents who received prescriptions for lethal medications under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act and who died in 1998. The data were obtained from physicians' reports, death certificates, and interviews with physicians. We compared persons who took lethal medications prescribed under the act with those who died from similar illnesses but did not receive prescriptions for lethal medications. RESULTS: Information on 23 persons who received prescriptions for lethal medications was reported to the Oregon Health Division; 15 died after taking the lethal medications, 6 died from underlying illnesses, and 2 were alive as of January 1, 1999. The median age of the 15 patients who died after taking lethal medications was 69 years; 8 were male, and all 15 were white. Thirteen of the 15 patients had cancer. The case patients and controls were similar with regard to sex, race, urban or rural residence, level of education, health insurance coverage, and hospice enrollment. No case patients or controls expressed concern about the financial impact of their illness. One case patient and 15 controls expressed concern about inadequate control of pain (P=0.10). The case patients were more likely than the controls to have never married (P=0.04) and were more likely to be concerned about loss of autonomy due to illness (P=0.01) and loss of control of bodily functions (P=0.02). At death, 21 percent of the case patients and 84 percent of the controls were completely disabled (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: During the first year of legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, the decision to request and use a prescription for lethal medication was associated with concern about loss of autonomy or control of bodily functions, not with fear of intractable pain or concern about financial loss. In addition, we found that the choice of physician-assisted suicide was not associated with level of education or health insurance coverage.  (+info)

(2/2176) Use of out-of-plan services by Medicare members of HIP.

Use of out-of-plan services in 1972 by Medicare members of the Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP) is examined in terms of the demographic and enrollment characteristics of out-of-plan users, types of services received outside the plan, and the relationship of out-of-plan to in-plan use. Users of services outside the plan tended to be more seriously ill and more frequently hospitalized than those receiving all of their services within the plan. The costs to the SSA of providing medical care to HIP enrollees are compared with analogous costs for non-HIP beneficiaries, and the implications for the organization and financing of health services for the aged are discussed.  (+info)

(3/2176) Insurance coverage of unintended pregnancies resulting in live-born infants--Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, and South Carolina, 1996.

In the United States during 1994, approximately 49% of all pregnancies, excluding miscarriages, were unintended. Unintended pregnancy can result in adverse health outcomes that affect the mother, infant, and family. Little is known about the distribution of unintended pregnancy with respect to the payment source for health care. In the absence of data for periconceptional payment source for health care, prenatal-care payment source is used as a surrogate. To develop recommendations to reduce unintended pregnancy, CDC analyzed insurance coverage-specific prevalences of live-born infants from unintended pregnancies among women aged 20-34 years using data from the Pregnancy Risk Assessment and Monitoring System (PRAMS) for 1996 (the most recent year for which data are available). This report summarizes the results of this analysis, which indicates that the highest rates of unintended pregnancy occurred among women covered by Medicaid, with lower rates among women covered by health-maintenance organizations (HMOs) or private insurance.  (+info)

(4/2176) Explaining the decline in health insurance coverage, 1979-1995.

The decline in health insurance coverage among workers from 1979 to 1995 can be accounted for almost entirely by the fact that per capita health care spending rose much more rapidly than personal income during this time period. We simulate health insurance coverage levels for 1996-2005 under alternative assumptions concerning the rate of growth of spending. We conclude that reduction in spending growth creates measurable increases in health insurance coverage for low-income workers and that the rapid increase in health care spending over the past fifteen years has created a large pool of low-income workers for whom health insurance is unaffordable.  (+info)

(5/2176) Mental health/medical care cost offsets: opportunities for managed care.

Health services researchers have long observed that outpatient mental health treatment sometimes leads to a reduction in unnecessary or excessive general medical care expenditures. Such reductions, or cost offsets, have been found following mental health treatment of distressed elderly medical inpatients, some patients as they develop major medical illnesses, primary care outpatients with multiple unexplained somatic complaints, and nonelderly adults with alcoholism. In this paper we argue that managed care has an opportunity to capture these medical care cost savings by training utilization managers to make mental health services more accessible to patients whose excessive use of medical care is related to psychological factors. For financial reasons, such policies are most likely to develop within health care plans that integrate the financing and management of mental health and medical/surgical benefits.  (+info)

(6/2176) Mixed signals: public policy and the future of health care R&D.

The incentives facing health care research and development (R&D) are influenced by the ambiguous signals sent by private and public insurance decisions affecting the use of, and payments for, existing technologies. Increasingly, that uncertainty is exacerbated by confusion over technologies' impact on health care costs, how costs are to be measured, and the social difficulty of determining medical "need" for purposes of insurance coverage. R&D executives appear to believe that "major" advances are more likely to win such coverage and thus to be profitable. The products that result, therefore, may make the current policy dilemma of cost containment versus service restriction more acute rather than less so. If the aim of policy is to cut costs, innovative remedies are necessary.  (+info)

(7/2176) Is health insurance in Greece in need of reform?

This paper aims to assess the relationship between insurance contributions and health benefits in Greece by using information from sickness funds' accounts. The paper argues that the fragmentation of social health insurance, and the particular ways in which sickness funds' financial services are organized, are a major source of inequity and are grossly inefficient. The survival of these systems in the 1990s cannot be explained except on grounds of inertia and corporate resistance.  (+info)

(8/2176) Health insurance in developing countries: lessons from experience.

Many developing countries are currently considering the possibility of introducing compulsory health insurance schemes. One reason is to attract more resources to the health sector. If those who, together with their employers, can pay for their health services and are made to do so by insurance, the limited tax funds can be concentrated on providing services for fewer people and thus improve coverage and raise standards. A second reason is dissatisfaction with existing services in which staff motivation is poor, resources are not used to best advantage and patients are not treated with sufficient courtesy and respect. This article describes the historical experience of the developed countries in introducing and steadily expanding the coverage of health insurance, sets out the consensus which has developed about health insurance (at least in Western European countries) and describes the different forms which health insurance can take. The aim is to bring out the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches from this experience, to set out the options for developing countries and to give warnings about the dangers of some approaches.  (+info)

What type of health insurance should I get?


  • I am a male and a non smoker, but I have had Epilepsy since I was in high school. I need a health insurance for my health. However, I do not know much which type of the health insurance Health group, Community Health Plan or KPS health plan is good for me in Washington State in the US. Now I don't have a job and I am independent. Would someone give me hand?
  • Don't depend on laypeople from Yahoo for this kind of advice - in Washington State you should be able to locate patient advocacy groups who can help you through the minefield. Your goal should be to avert financial catastrophe in case of major illness/accident. The common mistake is trying to cover the small expenses that could be easily covered out-of-pocket, at the expense of your catastrophic coverage. One common dirty trick of the insurance industry is putting lifetime or even per-occurrence caps on your coverage. For example- some chronic ailments might require $100,000 a year in treatment for years. You may have a high enough yearly cap to cover it ... but then later find out your coverage expires after only a couple of years, leaving you totally stuck (because no other company will pick up the pre-existing condition). So consult with somebody who really knows the situation in your state - best of luck to you.


If I get married will I lose my insurance?


  • Im 29 weeks pregant and currently on my parents insurance until im 19 (in 7 months). However me and my boyfriend (my little girls dad) want to get married before she is born. Will I lose my insurance if we get married? The baby has medical but since im on my parents insurance (Health Net) will I lose it if im married? Should we wait till after she is born since I need my insurance to cover my prenatal visits and to cover the hospital?
  • You probably will lose your parents insurance since most insurance plans dont cover married dependents. You could apply for medical assistance (insurance through the state) but it can take several weeks to months to take effect, and that is only if you are financially elligible. Consider this: Will a piece of paper legally making you husband and wife change your family status before you have the baby? Is that legal document that important or necessary before baby is born? Personally I would wait until the baby is born.


How Do I Get & Pay For Health Insurance?


  • I know this may sound dumb, but I am 17 about to turn 18 very soon. My parents are divorce, i live with my mom, but haven't talk or seen my dad for years. Since my dad was in the military I'm on his insurance health plan, when i turn 18 i'm going to be kicked off. Where can I find insurance? How much does it cost? Which would you recommend? pls&thks!
  • Double check you being "kicked off" your dad's insurance. The new health plan extended the age of a child's coverage. If you are still in school, you still should be covered. There are 2 types of insurance, one you are covered by your employer and the other is private, which you pay for out-of-pocket. eHealthInsurance.com is a site that will help you compare companies. Health insurance is expensive, so check out the companies carefully and compare what they offer. What is right for you, may not be for me . Find a plan with flexibility that lets you change factors, as needed. You can also check with the Soc. Security office to see if you qualify for assistance.


What things do I need to run an ice cream van ?


  • What kinds of things do I need ? Eg Insurance, Health Certificates, things like that ? Obviously the Ice cream, snacks, drinks and van, I mean like legal things
  • You need to decide on what sort of ice cream you are going to sell. If you sell pre-packaged novelties only your health inspection will be a breeze but if you are thinking of selling hard ice cream or running a soft serve machine you are looking at another whole different set of requirements. Prepackaged only is great because you don't need a way to wash your hands (though you should have purell and/or hand wipes in your truck just in case) and you don't have to be serve safe certified (its different in different places but basically you have to take a class on food handling). Soft and hard ice cream usually require that you have a commissary, or commercial kitchen, to use to clean your equipment. This is a pain to set up and might cost you money unless you know someone who has access to one (I have some more tips on this on my website). Insurance depends on your town requirements. My town required general liability insurance above and beyond my normal truck insurance and that cost a ton -- about $100 a week. Many towns don't require this and that will bring your insurance down to $10 or $20 a week but the specific town I could make the most money in required this. You will need to register your business at the town or city hall that you live in. This will cost maybe $20 bucks. Do a sole proprietorship if you are working on your own, otherwise go for an LLC (limited liability company). You need to set up a business account for your ice cream truck business. I used Bank of America and they were great; they have this deal where if you open a business account and you already have a personal account they give you $50 in each of those accounts. Most banks have incentives like these so shop around. Check out my website for more information below


What health insurance am I eligible for?


  • I am currently 17 years old. I will be turning 18 in early November and my family does not have health insurance. I was wondering if I qualify for anything that will be able to get me low-cost braces or anything orthopedic. My family makes not that much money anf I am currwntly going to be a full-time college student. What insurance or health care would I qualify for? I have been needing braces for a while now and I am really self conscious about my teeth I hate to smile. Thank you on your help.

Can you get supplemental insurance without having primary insurance?


  • Someone I know was told they can get this plan. http://www.statefarm.com/insurance/health/hospinco.asp Without having primary insurance. I wanted to find out if it was true.
  • No it is just as it says it is supplementary insurance and for it to be such there has to be a primary insurance policy first For there to be ONE there has to be a ZERO first.


How do you break into this Catch 22 circle the bureaucrats have created?


  • I can't get Medi-Cal insurance (health benefits) unless I am declared disabled. I can't be declared disabled unless I go to a doctor and have him fill out forms. I can't go to a doctor unless I can pay, since I have no health insurance. I can't pay unless I get Medi-Cal, which I can't get because . . . and the cycle continues. How does one get started on all this? Go to a doctor when you know you can't pay him?
  • I don't know about California, but many states will pay medical bills that were incurred within the three months previous to being approved. Look into that. Make the appointment, and get the ball rolling!


What is the difference between travel insurance and medical insurance (health insurance)?


  • I am going for a trip in South Korea for about 4 months. My travel agency is selling travel insurance for about 400$ for the whole time but the school im gonna be studying at also sells Korean health insurance for about 150$. Both seem to cover medical costs and accidental death. What is the difference between the two?
  • Sorry, but insurance is in a world or galaxy of its own. It is contract with specific clauses and conditions in which the insurance company pays in events spelled out. Travel insurance companies offer a variety of products so it is quite difficult to say. Generally, travel insurance protects the buyer from losing the entire costs of a trip (airline tickets, hotels, ground transportation, etc.) should you not be able to make the trip. Medical insurance is for medical expenses should you get injured or ill while abroad. You have to play lawyer and read all of the clauses in these contracts but primarily the travel insurance one. There have been too many complaints from customers but usually it is because they do not understand what they are buying. For example, the Korean insurance will probably not cover anything outside of its borders. If you are a student and do understand what they offer I encourage you get your parents, an adult or even a lawyer to help. The $400 for travel insurance sounds a bit high. If you are not paying for the travel costs, which you may not be, then that might be a reason you would not be even qualified for insurance. Like I said, the details can be complex. You know your situation best and you must have adults or more experienced people you can contact and get advice. It is best to have the written documents related to the insurance on hand. OK? Best of luck in your Korean studies. Sounds like a very exciting opportunity. Regards.
