    Is There Value to Health Risk Assessments?

    in Health

    Health risk assessments form the backbone of many wellness programs. Their aim? Provide employers with meaningful data for designing and evaluating wellness programs and provide employees with meaningful data for assessing and tackling individual health risk.

    The Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation reports in its 2014 Employee Health Benefits Survey that 33% of firms (small and large) offer employees the opportunity to complete an assessment. More than half of these firms offer enticements to boost employees' completion rate, including financial incentives. A much smaller percentage makes completion of an assessment a requirement for benefits enrollment or the lack of participation in a wellness program a penalizable offense when an assessment identifies health risks. 


    The questions these assessments ask and their voluntary nature when incentives and penalties are used has raised questions within the EEOC, resulting in a number of suits. 


    This show delves into the intent and value of health risk assessments with guest Dr. Peter Mills, co-founder of nGage Health, an organization specifically focused on creating patient engagement and health management solutions for healthcare providers in order to help them address the new challenges brought by health care reform. Peter was a founding team member at global health management consultancy vielife, acquired by CIGNA in 2006. He has also worked extensively with Minneapolis-based RedBrick Health, helping create some of their market-leading health management solutions.

    The Fall-Socially Conscious Art Remembers the Holocaust Victims

    in Lifestyle

    Please join Frankie Picasso host of  The Good Radio Network on Thursday, February 19th, 2015 at 1:00 pm est when she is joined by Julien Hanford, a Brithish  Artist/Photographer from London, England whose ambitious project titled "THE FALL" is his offering to the World, to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War 2.


    THE FALL is an art installation and event to commemorate the genocide of six million civilian human beings during the course of the second world war.


    The installation consists of 6 million domino tiles. These are arranged, stood on end, in a gigantic block measuring approximately 7,500 square metres. For 6 days they stand, marking the 6 years of the second world war, between 1939 – 1945.


    At noon on the 6th day, they will be toppled, row after row, by the hand of a Concentration Camp survivor.


    Says Julian, "To this day, I struggle to visualise this vast figure – it’s an abstract number, diluted by the passage of time. Around us in the intervening 40 years, we have also witnessed the re-ignition of the same racism and intolerance in the world that our species should have consigned to the waste bin of history. This is true to the point that there is an active movement now for the denial of the holocaust.


    We also feel priviledged to be able to give our listeners a first listen to Mad World by Aurelia which is due to be released  by Amazon on 26th Feb!


    Please join in this important conversation. We look forward to sharing this incredible story with you.

    Quick Update for California AB 60 License Applicants on Risk of Past Fraud

    in Legal

              As I stated in the earlier episode, "Things to Consider in Determining Risk", it was risky for the undocumented in applying for an AB 60 driver’s license if they had used a false social security number or used false documents in the past. This is the general advice given to AB 60 applicants because the DMV hadn't given out any information on this issue. Or perhaps it was an issue the DMV did not anticipate ahead of time. In any case, just to be safe, attorneys and non-profits usually recommmended those who used false documents or a false social security number to wait and see.


              Attorneys have learned that applicants who used false social security numbers for past licenses or used false documents will be flagged for, and should expect, a follow up DMV investigation. Information states it will not be DMV policy to refer AB 60 applicants who have committed past perjury or fraud for prosecution only as it relates to past driver’s licenses. Applicants might be referred for prosecution if the fraud/perjury was used to commit a crime, for example, identity fraud.


              The individual AB 60 applicant must decide if a driver’s license is worth the risk of what the investigation will uncover, especially if anything else in the applicant’s background will make them a deportation priority. Remember, although the DMV will not report the applicant to federal authorities, they will still be able to access all DMV information.


     For further information, comments or questions, I can be reached at (323) 924-8560 or you can send me an e-mail at: oscar@acunalawoffice.com. Please Note: This is just general information and is not intended to serve as legal advice for your particular legal issue.

    Percy Isgitt Arrested on Felony Charges. Flight Risk With 250,000 Bail

    in Politics Progressive

    High flight risk Houston Criminal Attorney Percy Lawayne Isgitt was arrested February 26, 2015 for MISAPP / FIDUCIARY / FINANCIAL OVER 200K in Harris County Texas. Percy Isgitt was already facing civil charges for stealing $275,000 from his lifelong family friends the Jordan Family. Isgitt's recent legal troubles include being sued by Amercian Express for $24,000 followed by his wife of 50 years divorcing him in January, the highly public fraud he committed against his best friends and now being arrested.  Amanda Brooks and  Jill Brenneman have been public about the physical, emotional, sexual and financial crimes against them by Isgitt but Brooks and Brenneman struggled to gain mainstream respect because we are sex workers. Amanda and Jill explain one of Isgitt's probably motives for stealing these funds. In the Spring of 2014, after the funds were stolen, Isgitt hired surveiilance of Jill. The surveillance team eventually beat Jill, who now suffers a terminal medical illness as complications from these beatings. Isgitt has continously attempted to find Amanda Brooks location from friends. If given the chance Isgitt will likely jump bail to Puerto Penasco, Mexico with the assistance of his Phoenix based agent and proxie, a convicted felon private investigator. Vast documentation of Percy's Isgitt's emails to Amanda, and Jill  including Brooks documenting the entire case prior to his arrest on her blog "After Hours"  Stunning details revealed in this Episode of XXBN
