    Behavioral Health Compliance: Making It Easy for Providers and Agencies

    in Psychology

    HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus,  PCI regulations - these are words that can strike fear into the heart of any Behavioral Health organization.  They don't need to as we found after speaking with our guest today on Mental Health News Radio.  We sat down with Marc Haskelson, the President and CEO of Compliancy Group, to find out how easy compliance can be.

    Do I have to attest for Meaningful Use?  What If I don’t attest?


    Who is considered a Vendor or a Business Associate?


    I am now accepting Medicare, does that put me at a higher risk for an audit just like everyone else?

    Is there an insurance policy available that helps an entity with HIPAA  fines?

    HEALTH MEDIA NOW-DR. KAJIKI-HOW TO MAINTAIN GOOD THYROID HEALTH!

    in Health

    Please join us this Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. PST and 7:00 p.m. EST for a live show with host Denise Messenger.  Our special guest is Dr Gil Kajiki.  He is the founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute. He graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic and has been a chiropractor for 30 years. The main focus of his practice is thyroid and Auto Immune conditions.  
    Through working with his patients he developed the Kajiki Protocol for determining thyroid and autoimmune issues with a particular concentration on Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.  He offers his patients answers and protocols to improve thyroid function and overall health.
    With his roots in chiropractic-biophysics, Dr. Kajiki was busy helping patients in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with their spinal structural corrective care when his wife became ill with what at first appeared to be Epstein Barr.
    As he watched his wife’s health deteriorate under the care of several doctors, Dr. Kajiki began a relentless search for answers to why his healthy wife could become so ill and yet no one seemed to know how to care for her. After more than two years of tests, medication, B12 shots, and finally hospitalization, it was her husband and not her medical provider who came to her rescue.
    After countless hours of study, consultation with colleagues, and testing, Dr. Kajiki diagnosed his wife with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. He spent the next several months treating her autoimmune condition through natural supplements, lifestyle modifications, and dietary changes. She is now symptom free and doesn’t take any thyroid medication.  Dr. Kajiki has an educational 5 DVD series of self-help for patients with chronic thyroid problems called “The Thyroid Mystery Solved”.  You asked for it and we deliver!

    Owner Operators CAN afford Private Health Insurance -Including low deductibles

    in Health

    Thursday Nov 5th 6PM ET   347-826-9170
    Owner Operators  CAN Afford Private Health Insurance


    The lifestyle of the professional driver has led to many illnesses over the years, no one disputes that.


    A main concern and challenge for many drivers, and a major reason for not taking care of their health, is the exorbitant cost for Health Care Coverage. So what do they do? They go without.


    Many Owner Operators have attempted to take advantage of tax credits, reduced cost health insurance, only to be misinformed and rejected, often told they did not qualify for a reduced rate, when in fact they most definitely did!
    Tonight we will explain why this happens and how to avoid this path.


    Our guest tonight, Trey Walker from PayPlans & Benefits, will explain how Owner Operators CAN afford and obtain full  Private Health Insurance with low deductibles and low co-pays, most often for under $100.00/month, This includes those who have been previously told that they did not qualify for a tax credit.

    Mr Walker will also share with us how and why he has personally guided many drivers onto the correct path in order to obtain the affordable health care they need, without needing to go through the maze of the government website.

    Unlike others, PayPlans & Benefits is unique to the trucking industry as they use their own software and are licensed in all 48 states.  This means you are never directed to someone else and you always have customer service.
     In other words, You start with PayPlans & Benefits  and end with PayPlans & Benefits.

    Insurance Policyholders Supporting ERISA Reform

    in Podcasting

    How often do we look around and say, how can we help bring change?  We can easily see many people struggling to stand up against the current ERISA Legislation which protects Wall Street Balance Sheets while causing serious damage to the budgets of Main Street.  Insurance denials and terminations placed insured money into the hands of Self-Insured Employers, Private, and Public Insurance Companies.  But is this right? Especially while Insurance Policyholders struggle to meet daily needs because Employee Benefit promised has been delayed, denied, or cut short and given back to corporations?  


    Today lets talk about what we as Insurance Policyholders can do to help bring about change which breaks the cycle of poverty when Employers keep Employee Benefits through ERISA.
