Universal health coverage (UHC) – or fairer, more efficient health financing that pools risk and shares healthcare costs equitably across the population – is about improving access to health services and reducing poverty from catastrophic healthcare expenditure. UHC reforms can improve health and financial protection of people around the world, especially poor and vulnerable populations. Universal Health Coverage was a core of resolutions reached at the United Nations General Assembly on 6th December 2012. High level discussions facilitated by the World Health Organization and other UN agencies have also led to ratification of universal health coverage as the key goal for the post-development agenda for global health. The concept is taking off in countries as varied as South Africa, India, Rwanda, Indonesia, and the United States, with governments around the world engaging in serious political and technical discussions on how to expand health coverage. Still others are considering such reforms, but are struggling to navigate the legal, financial, and political frameworks of their countries to determine the best path toward reform. While details vary from country to country, the key common goals are that the cost burden of health care is shared widely and evenly, patients and their families have increased coverage, resources are better utilized, and health outcomes are improved. Pertinent questions arise: Is it possible for Nigeria to achieve universal health coverage by 2015 as initially planned? What economic, social and political factors militate against the attainment of UHC in Nigeria? What existing model can the nation adopt to fast track UHC? Which middle or low income country in Africa can we learn from? What does it take to achieve UHC in Nigeria? Are we really to pay for price? And who pays? Those and similar questions will be fulcrum of discussion this week.
Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon this Saturday, January 31, 2015 and learn what you can do now to get affordable health coverage before the February 15, 2015 deadline and avoid a tax penalty this April. Call into the studio with your questions and/or comments: 347-945-7433.
If figuring out your 2015 health insurance is still on your "To Do" list, here are the three things you need to know:
It's not too late! Open Enrollment is...well, open! If you haven't applied for coverage, you still have time.
Have coverage from last year? Check to see if your current plan is still the best one for you. Many carriers have changed their pricing and you may want to choose a different plan.
Worried that health insurance is too expensive? Many people qualify for a tax credit subsidy that lowers the premium they pay each month. Example: subsidies are available for individuals with income between $11,670 and $46,680, or a family of four with income between $23,850 and $95,400.
Open Enrollment for 2015 coverage runs through February 15, 2015. During this time you can sign up for new coverage, change plans, or find out if you can get help paying for your coverage.
What if your body could tell you what it needs to work at its peak performance so you can look and feel amazing?

On the April 23, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Yesterday was Earth Day. To celebrate it I had shared a picture on my facebook wall saying "Happy Libertarian Earth Day" with a picture of a sunken ship and pollution everywhere. This caused a big debate. On many issues I do believe Libertarians have it right (mostly because they agree with liberals). However, in some areas their line of reasoning is flawed and even damaging. Can the invisible hand effectively stop pollution? Does the non aggression principal allow for government regulation?
In the second half I will be discussing King V Burwell. Arguments were made in March to the Supreme Court. I will have on as a guest Todd Haley who was able to get affordable health coverage under the ACA and whose case was brought up by Harvard Law School Center for Health Law and Public Policy. Mr. Haley would lose affordable coverage and would be adversely effected by a ruling against subsidies on exchanges that are federally run.

Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we discuss your guide to optimum juicing and healthy eating, Part 2.
Juice extraction is good for you because...
It’s a great opportunity to consume much more fresh fruits and vegetables than you would otherwise.
It’s great for kids who don’t eat much fresh food and drink too much soda. A lot of the juices you can make taste amazing – even to kids!
Fruit and vegetable juices are easier to digest than eating the equivalent.
People enjoy the taste of fresh fruit and vegetable juice more than a big plate of cabbage or carrots.
Fresh fruit and vegetable juice is raw, which is the best way to consume fresh food. Cooking tends to destroy important enzymes.
