    7/14/015 - TRIP and Wisconsin Stars of Life

    in Caregiving

    This webcast of Wisconsin EMS Live was recorded on Tuesday, July 14 starting at 9:00 a.m. central time.  The live broadcast discussed TRIP and Stars of Life 2015. 

    TRIP stands for Tax Refund Intercept Program. Since an ambulance service can't do a credit check when being dispatched to a person's 911 call, some patients unfortunately don't pay their ambulance bill even after the insurance company has sent the check directly to them for that purpose.  This leaves the ambulance service in a bad situation unable to collect on services rendered, meet its own financial obligations, and reinvest those funds in its operation, equipment and staff.  Some of Wisconsin's largest ambulance services are writing off each year $500,000 to one-million dollars in noncollectable debt.

    TRIP recently passed the Wisconsin legislature and is simply awaiting Governor Scott Walker's signature.

    In the meantime, we need to prepare ambulance service management not familiar with TRIP, explain how it works, and is used as another option to collections when other attempts have failed.  With Governor Walker's signature, it opens the option of TRIP to all Wisconsin ambulance services under contract with a municipality to provide 911 service.  TRIP cannot be used for inter-facility transfers or patients with Medicare or Medicaid insurance coverage.

    Wisconsin EMS Live program guests who discussed TRIP and answered questions include:  From The Stark Collection Agency in Madison, Pauline Kussart, and from Valders Ambulance, Director Jay Steuer.

    The latter half of the 60 minute program is dedicated to discussing Wisconsin Stars of Life 2015 with committee members Larry Knuth, a 2009 Star recipient himself, and Linda Wiedmann.  The event is to recognize Wisconsin's best EMTs and Paramedics as nominated by their respective departments.

    Wisconsin-Iowa football preview

    in Sports

    The Wisconsin Badgers look to start Big Ten Conference play on the right note, hoping to keep the Heartland Trophy in Madison as they face the Iowa Hawkeyes this upcoming Saturday. 

    Will the tandem of Taiwan Deal and Dare Ogunbowale be able to run on a stout Iowa run defense only giving up 84 yards on the ground? Can Joel Stave carry the Wisconsin offense against an impressive secondary led by junior cornerback Desmond King? 

    On the opposite side of the ball, will running back Jordan Canzeri be productive against the Wisconsin defense, and will the Badgers, like outside linebackers Joe Schobert and Vince Biegel, be able to contain Iowa quarterback C.J. Beathard?

    We preview the game with Black Heart Gold Pants' Patrick Vint at 8:35!

    Wisconsin probate court : We don't need no stinkin' evidence

    in Moms and Family

    Hosted by Marti Oakley & Debbie Dahmer

    6:15--BIG WEEK FOR GUARDIANSHIP.   KRIS HOOD reports from Texas on major changes happening in guardianship.  Kris will be kicking off our new information segment in the first hour of this show.

    6:30...Latoya joins us from Georgia.  Latoya's mother has been the victim of guardianship abuse by a family member.  Drugged, neglected and living in horrendous conditions, she begged to return to Georgia to live with her daughters. Once in Georgia, the drugging was stopped to the extent that she began walking, talking and

    In Wisconsin, the Homorable Judge Jane Carroll of Milwaulkee, decided she didn't need to see any evidence of abuse and that it would be appropriate to dismiss a restraining order against the abuser along with all other petitions in the case.  This even after testimony from the Wisconsin Department of Aging requesting that the guardianship be dismissed,  Community Care of Wisconsin also testified that they were aware of physical abuse and the brandishiing of a gun used to threaten LaToya's mother by the abuser.  Jusge Carroll decided none of this mattered and the abuser was never asked to testify or answer for his actions. 

    Latoya's mother was returned to the home of the abuser, and lives in constant fear and a state of anxiety.
