SORT BY Relevancy
I am continuing my audio blog, moving away from my experiences with my journey with my mother to patient and healthcare stories. It is my hope that these stories will be informative and instructive. When you hear them, you may think, is she making this up. No, they are real.
On this episode Jim discusses the plight of thousands of Americans that can not afford medical services due to Obamacare, the media targets Donald Trump again disputing his claim that he saw people in New Jersey celebrating after the September 11th attacks, was George W. Bush right with his doctrine of preemptive strikes? The IRS to begin revoking the passports of individuals with unpaid tax debts, and this year's biggest Black Friday deal.
The Affordable Care Act 2010 (ObamaCare) put consumers in charge of their health care. Under the law, a new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health.
Some of the key components of this Healthcare Act:
Ends Pre-Existing Condition Exclusions for Children under age 19 due to a pre-existing condition.
Keeps Young Adults under age 26, covered
Ends Lifetime Limits on Coverage
Helps You Get the Most from Your Premium Dollars: Your premium dollars must be spent primarily on health care – not administrative costs.
Covers Preventive Care at No Cost to You
Protects Your Choice of Doctors: Choose the primary care doctor you want from your plan’s network.
Removes Insurance Company Barriers to Emergency Services: You can seek emergency care at a hospital outside of your health plan’s network.
Sounds pretty good, right? So, why were Republican members of Congress fighting so hard to repeal this law?
On this episode of Real World Politics, you’ll learn more about the most controversial law of President Obama’s presidential career.
Join us on Tuesday, February 10, 2015, at 5:00pm PST/ 7:00pm CST/ 8:00pm EST, to discuss what a lot of Americans feel about “ObamaCare”.

Dr Ron Hirshberg is to animals what healthcare advocates are to patients. He has dedicated his life to finding solutions to the pain and suffering of animals. He has always been innovative in his treatments and care. He discovered low level laser therapy when the arthritis in his hands was becoming painful and needed to find a viable treatment that allowed him to continue his work. He stumbled upon this therapy and was successfully treated. He then thought, could this work with animals? He did the research and started using it in his practice with amazing results. He will be talking about the how and why of laser therapy on animals as well as humans. His work and committment has been recognized by several leading veterinary schools as well as international and national laser therapy associations. It is an honor to have this wonderfully dedicated individual on the show.

Howard Block and I will be discussing how to talk about end of life care with a loved one, patient or friend. It can be difficult to know how to approach the topic and exactly what to say. We will discuss why it shouldn't be a conversation with only your doctor but also your family. Why is it important? It is a topic no one wants to have but it can be so helpful knowing what a loved onewants when death is near. We both have had the experience of working with people who knew what they wanted and others who didn't. We have learned the importance of this conversation and how it helps families. We are talking about people saying exactly how much care they want whether full code or not. We hope to remove some of the fear and uncertainty that people experience. It is our goal for listeners to know it is their choice.
eCareDiary will speak to Karyn Rizzo, author of "Aging in America Navigating Our Healthcare System" and patient advocate, about resources to help caregivers through varied health-related decisions such as choosing the right doctor, advanced directives, to name a few.
