    Private Exchanges and Pet Insurance

    in Business

    On this morning's program, the hosts will be discussing private health insurance exchanges, pet insurance and more with special guests from Accenture and Hartville Pet Insurance Group.


    For the first segment on today's program, Scott Brown, Private Exchange Offering Lead at Accenture, will be joining the program to discuss the firm's latest private exchange research. Accenture estimates enrollment in private health insurance exchanges doubled to six million individuals for the 2015 plan year. The company projects hypergrowth will continue through 2018, as a number of factors inhibiting early growth will dissipate, while several accelerators will spur further adoption. These factors, combined with the employer’s desire to meet consumers’ demand for choice and flexibility in a retail-like shopping experience, will lead to 40 million members on private exchanges by 2018.


    The second guest on this week's program will be JoAnne Novak, AVP Business Development at Hartville Pet Insurance Group, providers of ASPCA Pet Health Insurance.  As one of the oldest and largest pet insurance providers in the U.S., Hartville has committed itself to helping more pet parents have access to reliable and affordable pet insurance plans. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 68 percent of U.S. households have a pet, and last year, over $15 billion was spent on veterinary care. In this segment, JoAnne will discuss what’s driving the increasing demand for pet health insurance as a voluntary benefit as well as what makes pet insurance relevant for the workforce in connection with health care consumerism and private exchanges.

    ASPCA Partner Communities

    in Pets

    There are four animal organizations in Austin involved with this project. The Austin Partners are Animal Trustees of Austin (ATA), Austin Humane Society (AHS), Emancipet and Town Lake Animal Center (TLAC). ASPCA knows there are no "quick fixes" to ending the unnecessary euthanasia of animals. They do know and have proof that collaboration among all groups in a community in striving to reduce the euthanasia of these animals can work.

    "Ghost Mine" Owners Larry and Stacie Overman

    in Spirituality

    What happens when the paranormal unexpectedly appears along your path? Could ghosts actually be real? Larry Overman, owner of the Crescent Gold Mine in Sumpter, Oregon, shares his stories of the "Ghost Mine" featured in the popular paranormal Syfy Channel reality series.


    Expanding beyond the two-year run of the series and based on popular demand from fans, Larry has now launched a new Haunted Mine TV site allowing subscribers to view the goings-on at the mine via continuous looping and real time streaming. The original mining crew from 2010 will be returning, along with new additions. There will even be opportunities for lucky fans to work at the mine, with the potential of earning up to $10,000 in one week.


    Larry hopes to help create more jobs in Oregon through his efforts and also is supporting a number of charitable causes, donating $1 of every subscription to organizations such as The Wounded Warriors Project, ASPCA, St. Jude and Camp UKANDU.


    Larry has discovered a rare metal compound at the mine which has a wide range of potential uses, from space travel to cancer to mental illness treatments.

    Hoarding, Animal Abuse, ASPCA, HSUS, PETA & media hype

    in Legal

    This week I will be adressing the various Animal Rights groups, it is time you learn where your money is going & what it is being used for.
    We see the ads, heartwrenching abused forlorn animals that only you can help with your 20 bucks a month. Did you know that 20 bucks a month goes to legislation & to fund CEO's pension funds? Did you know that once the cameras are gone & they've sucked your wallet dry that they leave the animals behind at high kill shelters or simply kill them, themselves.
    I aso am going to address the term hoarding: What it is & what it isn't. Animal abuse & neglect are a hot topic in this country because people inherently want to help animals, but learn the truth about what is considered abuse & what isn't. Also learn ways you can help.
