    HEALTH REFORM MONDAY

    in Christianity

    Men and women cannot violate natural law by indulging depraved appetite and lustful passions, and not violate the law of God. Therefore He has permitted the light of health reform to shine upon us, that we may see our sin in violating the laws which He has established in our being. All our enjoyment or suffering may be traced to obedience or transgression of natural law. Our gracious heavenly Father sees the deplorable condition of men, who, some knowingly but many ignorantly, are living in violation of the laws that He has established. And in love and pity to the race, He causes the light to shine upon health reform. He publishes His law, and the penalty that will follow the transgression of it, that all may learn, and be careful to live in harmony with natural law. He proclaims His law so distinctly, and makes it so prominent, that it is like a city set on a hill. All accountable beings can understand it if they will. Idiots will not be responsible. To make plain natural law, and urge the obedience of it, is the work that accompanies the third angel's message, to prepare a people for the coming of the Lord. CD 69.2

    HEALTH REFORM MONDAYS

    in Christianity

    I was again shown that the health reform is one branch of the great work to fit a people for the coming of the Lord. And it is as closely connected with the third angel's message as the hand is united to the body. The law of ten commandments has been lightly regarded by man. The Lord would not come to punish the transgressors of his law without first sending them a message of warning. The third angel proclaims the warning message. Had men ever been obedient to the law of ten commandments, carrying out in their lives the principles of these ten precepts, the curse of disease now flooding the world would not be. THE HEALTH REFORM AND THE HEALTH INSTITUTE, PAGE 1

    Big Picture Health Care Trends & A Legislative Update

    in Business

    On this week's show, hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field talk with special guests from copatient, Brighton Health Plan Solutions and TASC.


    The first guest is Tom Torre, CEO at copatient, a health care expense management company. In this segment, Tom joins the hosts to discuss the big health care trends that copatient is seeing in the market today and why copatient exists. As an industry veteran with past executive roles at FIS Global and Alegeus Technologies, Tom will also touch upon copatient’s medical bill review and negotiation service and out-of-network claims management service and what benefit these services have to health plans, employers, brokers and TPAs. 


    The second guest is Simeon Schindelman, CEO of Brighton Health Plan Solutions (parent company of MagnaCare). The traditional health care system fails to align the interests of the key players, doesn’t put consumer care first and also underserves other key stakeholders, such as care providers, plan sponsors, families of patients and brokers/agents. Educating plan sponsors and plan participants about options and tradeoffs, while developing trusting relationships so they value advice being offered, will improve their ability to access and use the health care system most appropriately. In this interview, Simeon and the hosts talk about thoughtful approaches to lowering health care costs, improving quality and increasing the satisfaction of all participants in the health care system.


    The final guest on this week's program is Jason Westphal, legislative analyst at TASC. As head of TASC’s Governmental Affairs team, a member of ECFC and former chief of staff in the Wisconsin State Assembly, Jason will provide listeners with insights on legislative issues pertaining to compliance for the small employer, document storage, sharing and tracking, the Employer Shared Responsibility Mandate and ERISA.

    Health Care Reform

    in Health

    What do we really know about the Health Care Reform? The plan states that it wants to ensure that every American has access to high quality health care. However, to reform the current health care system, we will have to expand coverage, improve quality, lower costs, honor patient choice and hold insurance companies accountable. Join us as we have a panel of health experts who will discuss the Health Care Reform.

  • HEALTH REFORM MONDAY

    in Christianity

    When the abuse of health is carried so far that sickness results, the sufferer can often do for himself what no one else can do for him. The first thing to be done is to ascertain the true character of the sickness and then go to work intelligently to remove the cause. If the harmonious working of the system has become unbalanced by overwork, overeating, or other irregularities, do not endeavor to adjust the difficulties by adding a burden of poisonous medicines.


    Intemperate eating is often the cause of sickness, and what nature most needs is to be relieved of the undue burden that has been placed upon her. In many cases of sickness, the very best remedy is for the patient to fast for a meal or two, that the overworked organs of digestion may have an opportunity to rest. A fruit diet for a few days has often brought great relief to brain workers. Many times a short period of entire abstinence from food, followed by simple, moderate eating, has led to recovery through nature's own recuperative effort. An abstemious diet for a month or two would convince many sufferers that the path of self-denial is the path to health.

    2016 Outlook for Health Care & Benefits

    in Business

    The new season of HealthCare Consumerism Radio gets underway this morning as hosts Andrew Dietz and Doug Field welcome special guests from ECFC and Acclaris. Topics on today's show will include the “Cadillac” tax, account-based plans and more, with an underlying focus on an industry outlook for the year ahead.


    The first guest is Bill Sweetnam, the legislative and technical director for ECFC, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and expanding employee benefit programs on a tax-advantaged basis. In this interview, Bill will discuss being a part of the ECFC for the past six months and the significant strides the organization is poised to make in advancing health care consumerism in 2016. A 30-year industry veteran, Bill will also discuss the work underway, the repercussions of the “Cadillac” tax and the ongoing initiative of the ECFC to repeal it.


    The second guest on the show is Seth Ravine, the chief revenue officer for Acclaris, a Willis Towers Watson company. With a new year now underway, some things still don’t change. The two core components that are needed to drive effective health care initiatives will remain the same: long-term engagement and an integrated experience. However, there will be changes in the year ahead to make those components a reality. In this interview, Seth will discuss his five industry predictions for a successful new year.

    HEALTH REFORM MONDAY

    in Christianity

    Our bodies are built up from the food we eat. There is a constant breaking down of the tissues of the body; every movement of every organ involves waste, and this waste is repaired from our food. Each organ of the body requires its share of nutrition. The brain must be supplied with its portion; the bones, muscles, and nerves demand theirs. It is a wonderful process that transforms the food into blood and uses this blood to build up the varied parts of the body; but this process is going on continually, supplying with life and strength each nerve, muscle, and tissue.


     


    Selection of Food


    Those foods should be chosen that best supply the elements needed for building up the body. In this choice, appetite is not a safe guide. Through wrong habits of eating, the appetite has become perverted. Often it demands food that impairs health and causes weakness instead of strength. We cannot safely be guided by the customs of society. The disease and suffering that everywhere prevail are largely due to popular errors in regard to diet.


    In order to know what are the best foods, we must study God's original plan for man's diet. He who created man


    Page 296


    and who understands his needs appointed Adam his food. "Behold," He said, "I have given you every herb yielding seed, . . . and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food." Genesis 1:29, A.R.V. Upon leaving Eden to gain his livelihood by tilling the earth under the curse of sin, man received permission to eat also "the herb of the field." Genesis 3:18.


    Grains, fruits, nuts, and vegetables constitute the diet chosen for us by our Creator. These foods, prepared in as simple and natural a manner as possible, are the most healthful and nourishing.

    GENDER AND THE HEALTH CARE BUSINESS

    in Current Events

    With the healthcare business being what it is today, it seems like all the health care providers are parts of big organizations and most of those organizations are headed up by men. So if there is a difference between men and women in the way patients are treated and care is dispensed, what does it mean if most of the direct providers are female and the head honchos are male?


    Lots of questions, some answers.

She is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist who specializes in assessment of adults with neurological injury or disease, medical conditions, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, and or emotional problems that impact academic or work life. And she is interested in helping women providers be owners and not just worker bees when it comes to helping patients.
