  2. Congratulations for an excellent site for views, opinions and commentaries. I have read a few of the articles and they were all quite impressive. If I may just suggest, I hope you can also discuss about available financial aids for Medicare Prescription Drug cost, as I believe that not all knows that they can be entitled for such an aid. Thanks and more power. 🙂

  3. Dear rdquinn, I’ve read the article “Don’t pay that doctor’s bill yet” and want to thank you for that. I expect new educational articles about “How inshurance works”. Being very experience person could you help me with very complecated issue? I ‘ d like to know how payments are spread between Insurance (Horizon BCBJ HMO small group insurance from work ) and patient who is not elegible for Medicare because he does not have 40 quaters even though he is more that 65 years old. Thank you for your blog.

  4. Finding health insurance in today’s marketplace can seem impossible. If you’re one of the millions of Americans who buys their own health coverage, individual health insurance can offer you a confusing array of options – not all of them good, and few that are inexpensive.Sure, it may seem easy to find an agent who will offer you cheap health insurance, but here’s the thing: health coverage isn’t cheap if it doesn’t adequately cover your expenses when you need it most.

  5. Sleep is an essential element to keep life going, nothing else matters. We spend about one-third of our lives asleep, nearly 3,000 hours per year. Unfortunately, one out of every four Americans reports getting sleep less than 7 hours per night daily during the work week, which works out to about an hour and a half less than a century ago.

  7. Just received this from Consumers Union – Your thoughts

    Dear John,
    It’s no shock the insurance companies hate the new health reform law that requires them to spend most of your premium on your health care – not on their reams of paperwork, marketing, TV ads and CEO salaries.
    What is shocking is a plan that could put the money you deserve back in the insurance companies’ pockets!
    Next week a group of little-known state insurance commissioners may vote to tell Congress to undermine this new law. Make sure they know you are watching what they do!
    Tell your state Insurance Commissioner to vote for consumers, not the insurance companies!
    What’s at stake is one of the most pro-consumer rules in the much-maligned national health care law. This rule says insurance companies can’t spend more than 20 percent of your premium on their administrative costs and profits. It finally holds companies accountable for how they spend your money – and helps hold down our rates as well.
    Even better, if insurance companies don’t keep their costs down, they have to give YOU a rebate for how much they went over that 20 percent. It’s estimated consumers could get at least $2 billion in rebates next year!
    Of course the industry hates this rule. And one way around it is to claim the money they pay insurance brokers to sell their policies shouldn’t come out of that 20 percent. If the Commissioners vote to let them do that, then we may have to say goodbye to most of those rebates – and hello to spiraling rates!
    Tell your Insurance Commissioner to reject this anti-consumer scheme!
    We beat back this attempt once with your help. Now we need you to weigh in again with the Insurance Commissioners and tell them consumers are watching what they do – and there will be consequences! Please act, then forward this to others so they can too!
    Sincerely,
    DeAnn Friedholm

  9. I was reading through a few of the articles and highly recommend reading ‘Costs Contained, Better Quality Care? The Hope of ACOs’. It makes total sense and I do agree with the author. There really is no need for unnecessary, duplicative tests. This type of thing is the reason why we can not find cheap insurance.
