    Beginning in 2014 (?) everybody is going to be needed to buy healthcare coverage, or they’ll be penalized yearly, right? What goes on if you cannot afford it?

    I realize that there’s an excellent for individuals who not pay, but what if you’re simply not able to pay for for this? Surely they cannot throw you in prison to be poor?

And when I actually do mention him immediately, how must i get it done?

    The condition may not affect your attendance at the office, however it would affect the standard of the work. On the other hand, it could affect your attendance, although not the standard of the work.

    So I have recently moved, prior to my move we got a dog. This dog was to be an addition to our family first for my two kids, one has adhd and the other has depression. Both are teenagers so i thought a dog would really help us out. In this process I found the dog really helped ME deal with anxiety I suffer from. We just moved and couldnt bring our dog without a doctors consent, she is new to me as a therapist but I cant seem to convince her that this dog is necessary to the whole family. Is there any “special” wording that would prompt a doctor to go along with this short of saying i want to commit suicide??? I dont of course but we are getting desperate to get our dog back, my niece is taking care of him while we go thru this process… ANY THERAPISTS OUT THERE?

    My premiums keep going up on my regular medical insurance and I’m weighing dropping my supplemental insurances. I don’t have a family to support or any assets to protect and my rent is super cheap because I’m single& share a house. I also have 80 sick days accumulated at work to cover minor illnesses/injuries to cover paychecks already. Am I making a mistake by canceling disability?

    My 14 year old daughter has been receiving therapies for 11 years and the insurance recently stopped her occupationa l therapy (“not medically necessary”) She is unable to talk, feed herself, no contrl of upper extremeties and still in diapers.
    She almost drowned when she was 3 years old. Im at the point of giving up, for 11 years of battling the insurance company. Another sad thing is she’s not qualified for any government medical assistance due to family income. Please help if you know of any ways to skip many years of waiting for medicaid waiver.

    I have the option of signing up for long-term disability insurance through my place of employment. When I was young and single, I really never considered insurance much. However, now that this once wild stallion has been domesticated into family life, it seems that there are other concerns that need to be met, such as ensuring continued support for my family in the event that something should happen.

    I still think insurance is a scam, but apparently a necessary evil these days.
    For those of you who question my willingness to label insurance as a scam and necessary evil, I recall first hand the dilemma my mother had after a severe accident. Despite having paid her premiums on time and being declared as disabled after the accident, the insurance company did everything it could to weasel out of paying her the premium. She had to get a lawyer and fight it in court, eventually winning, but not without legal costs. Hence, my view of insurance companies.

    I’m trying to find out the best route, and the quickest yet best quality, to become a nurse practitioner. I’m an RN with an Associate Degree, and have been in the medical field for 29 yrs, since high school.

    I’m interested in learning something new, and would like to stay in the medical field despite a partial disability I have. This makes it impossible to continue with physical, or even sedentary nursing, so more autonomy would be great.

    If there are any legitimate at home job for an RN, that would be very helpful in the meantime. Any ideas?

    I’ve been Charge nurse in a high acuity med-surg unit in a teaching hospital, and presently Charge in a Surgery/Oncology unit. I also work ENT/Ortho/GI/GU/Oral/Plastics/Derm clinics, and Minor surgery.

    I was a certified scrub tech prior. I worked in the OR for 10 yrs. I trained at the best, ‘Big Charity’ in New Orleans.
    Motto: ‘See one, do one, teach one’ I specialized in Ortho and Neuro, training new staff.

    Thanks for input!

    While I do not generally like new government programs, if this replaced things such as Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and all other entitlement and welfare programs I think it would be okay (it may also even be able to compete strongly with insurance companies).

    So, what is the idea? A voluntary need-meeting citizen help program. The idea is simple: set up a program in which whosoever will may enroll. Participants may use it to publicly register financial needs, such as medical expenses, college tuition, business startup costs, disability help, etc. There will be no restrictions on what needs you can register besides activities which are already illegal (for example, you cannot register your need of $10000 to pay off a hitman to kill your brother). When registering, you will properly categorize your need so that others will be able to find it. Once you have registered, your request will be reviewed for authenticity (registering a fake need or lying about the nature of your need would be a federal offense). If it comes through clean, your need will be visible on the national database (optionally anonymous).

    On the other end, you can only request up to 85% of however much you have contributed (and upon receiving your assistance, the amount you received will be deducted from your available request funds until you contribute more). People newly involved with the program would start with permission to request up to $1,500, but they must contribute to request more than that. To contribute, you go to the needs database and find a need you would like to meet. You can sort them by cost, category, date, or other criteria, or you can simply choose one at random. Using your preferred payment method, you can send the funds necessary to meet the need you have chosen. At that point, 85% of whatever you contributed will be available to request for any needs you may have.

    The benefits of this system seem to me to be many. First, it is entirely voluntary. If you do not want to contribute, you do not have to do so, but you will not be able to receive any benefits, either. Second, it would reduce the need for expensive or ridiculous insurance, as many common needs could be met through this system. Third, the 85% rate would mean that the program funds itself, possibly with a surplus. To make it more worthwhile, the rate would increase as you give more, and contributions would be tax-deductible. Fourth, in general the money will not be wasted because (1) each request would be screened for authenticity and (2) people who make ridiculous requests will probably not find anyone else in the program willing to contribute to them. Fifth, it would cut down on much bureaucratic waste because the only people involved would be the participants, the authenticators, and the IT guys keeping the system running. Sixth, it would give people more flexibility when they need money. If your need doesn’t fall into the exact parameters of any of the current entitlement or welfare programs, you won’t get money, but under this system you could get money if anyone was willing to give it.

    Here’s a sample of how this might go: a new college student is having trouble finding a job. He has just entered this program, so he requests $1,000 out of the initial $1,500 he may ask for. A wealthy businessman wants to use the program to begin building available funds instead of life insurance, and while on the database he sees the college kid’s $1,000 need. He decides to meet it and sends the kid $1,000, thus building for himself his first $850 towards his goal. The kid gets the money and eventually finds a job and makes it through college. In time, he becomes a successful lawyer. Eventually he wants to make a contribution out of charity, so when on the database he finds that the wealthy businessman has died and his family requests $2,000 for various death-related expenses. Moved, the lawyer gives the family the $2,000 they asked for, and has built for himself should he ever need it $1,700 of available funds to request.

    So, guys, what do you think?
    @Mac: You didn’t read what I wrote, did you? I’m not ranting; I am explaining a detailed proposal. In fact, nowhere in my text will you find me making any negative remarks about current programs.
    @Whoovian: Of course it is essentially the same as a sophisticated, information-age private charity. It is only connected to the government in that the government would be the one operating and administrating the program, even though it operates almost as though independent from the government. Connections to the government are valuable, though, in that they would serve to satisfy some liberals and almost all moderates, plus it would make the program widely known and accessible.
