If employers want to maintain or reduce healthcare spending, one of the best places to start is with employees’ use of hospitals. The long-time mantra in addressing health care costs is to keep employees out of emergency rooms, avoid unnecessary hospital admissions and, if an employee or their dependent is admitted, get them out of the hospital as quickly as possible.
A growing number of employers and insurance companies are using different strategies to direct employees to the best care, including concierge medicine and virtual-physician-diagnostic services for minor medical conditions.
Join the CoHealth community as we talk with Alan Roga (StatDoctors) and Natalie Hodge (PersonalMedicinePlus) -- two physicians who are changing how and where physicians meet patients, including via virtual, computer-based visits, mobile apps and concierge services.

Hosts Janet Kira Lessin & Dr. Sasha Lessin interview guest Rey Hernendez on the Extraterrestrial Contact Organization.
The Foundation for Research into Extraterrestrial Encounters, or FREE, together with Starborn Support International, fully understand that there are likely millions of individuals worldwide who have had, and continue to have contact experiences with non-human intelligent beings. The majority of these individuals fear discussing their experiences due to the ostracism and rejection they receive from the people in their social circles, including family, friends, and associates. They become private, reclusive, frequently depressed, and in many cases, suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress due to the nature of some of their encounters. A few will talk about it, but their revelations are highly self-censored and do not include most times the most important information, namely, that which hurts them physically, emotionally, and again, socially.
Many members of both FREE and Starborn Support have spoken out, publicly announcing that they are indeed experiencers and have had contact with intelligent, non-human beings. As an example, FREE has five medical professionals, all physicians on staff, but only two have “Come out of the closet,” as it were. The others will not. They are still licensed, and are in fear of losing their practices or their positions.
This scenario is not limited to medical professionals. People in all fields from lawyers, to professors, to psychologists, teachers and police officers – individuals in all careers, both white-collar and blue-collar dread the ridicule and persecution they will suffer if they publicly expose their experiences to others.
