    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.

    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!

    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.

    Financial Wellness & Digital Health

    in Business

    On this week's program, hosts Ron Bachman and Doug Field welcome two guests to the program to cover financial wellness, digital health tools and more. In the show's opening 10 minutes, the hosts discuss highlights of the upcoming Private Exchange FORUM conference program.


    The first guest is Denise Winston, founder of Money Starts Here, a financial education company. Most of us are no strangers to financial worries, especially in today’s economy. In the workplace, however, there’s a growing concern that needs addressing: the impact of financially stressed employees on their employers. The harsh reality is that the majority of working Americans are already living paycheck to paycheck, and it’s about to get worse. Unfortunately, due to the ACA, many employers have seen huge increases in their health care premiums and have no other option except to shift more of those health care costs onto their already financially stressed employees. In this segment, Denise and the hosts will take a look at what monetary worries will do to an employee’s quality of life -- and how that impacts a company’s bottom line.


    The second guest is Paul Ketchel, CEO of MDsave. As an ever-growing number of patient-consumers begin to feel the impact of their high-deductible plans, January is an appropriate time to take a fresh look at new and emerging tools and solutions that address the "consumerization" of health care. In this conversation with Paul Ketchel, the CEO of digital health care startup MDsave, we will take a look at what solutions are offered directly to consumers today, through their current insurance carriers and through their employers. It is well understood that the cost burden of health care is shifting to the consumer. What is not understood are the current options for mitigating that cost burden without compromising on care.
