America can afford Medicare for all
Last week while performing my engineering duties on KPFT’s Thinkwing Radio with Mike Honig, a rather disturbing call came from a caller. The caller was not a bad person. The caller was not ill willed. The caller simply bought into the tenet that the mythical free market can solve all of America and the world’s problems.
I do not mind folks having different ideological beliefs in most segments of our economy. In fact it may even be a great experiment to show what works effectively.
Where these ideologies cause pain, financial distress, or deaths unnecessarily to our fellow human beings, to our fellow Americans, one should not leave it up to some unseen, unknown, or so far failed market.
When the caller implied that morality had no role in the implementation of healthcare, I was left flabbergasted. He seemed to be of the belief that somehow there was some intrinsic benevolence to our mythical free market.
There are grey areas in every debate. However there are areas where there are absolutes. Healthcare is one of the areas with absolutes. Those who want a complete mythical free market answer to healthcare have already been proven wrong. Americans need not have had to go through the past decades of wasteful medical spending and medical robbery. Simple arithmetic had the answer.
There is only one solution that makes mathematical sense. It is Medicare for all.
Susan Chaffin is the Director, Medicare Advantage Revenue Management for DST Health Solutions. In this episode, Susan explains how andwhy HCC's are so important and how the new law impacts health plans and payers. Also, given the change in payment methodology, she explains how health plans need to adjust.

Join Scott, Cherise and George with Sue Berger (Crusader for CGM Coverage by Medicare)
Last year Sue and her husband turned 65 and her definition of herself changed; she defines herself as her husband’s advocate for his Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM).They started this journey sometime in September or October of 2012 when he needed a new CGM because his 2 ½ year old system had started to behave very erratically. They never considered that they would have a problem replacing the CGM with a new one...they were wrong.

Brace Barber Stops by HR Latte to Talk about the Influence Leadership can have on their Workforce
Rayanne interviews one of her personal heroes, Brace E. Barber. Brace's book, "No Excuse Leadership: Lessons from the U.S. Army's Elite Rangers" was instrumental in nudging her to go back to school in the midst of a failing marriage, raising four kids, and finding her way in the second half of life.
Brace is a non-stop entrepreneur who utilizes a Sun Tzu-based strategy development process and Full Spectrum Decision-Making programs to establish a stable path from the beginning, instead of trying to figure things out as we go... Strategy in Leadership? Of course.
Join us for an insightful conversation about leadership today moving into tomorrow!

E-cigarettes are becoming very popular these days. Tens of thousands of people have said that "vaping" (the use of e-cigarettes) has saved their lives, by replacing cigarette smoking. But, the critics say e-cigarettes are no safer than regular tobacco cigarettes, and may even be more harmful. Now, the federal government is looking into the possibility for not only regulating, but taxing the industry.
Join host, Bobby Keith, along with WTP President, Toby Marie Walker, as we take a look at the great e-cigarette debate. Our guest tonight will be Bobby's daughter, Christi Nation. Christ, and her husband Josh, have been "smoke free" for 5 months now, thanks to e-cigarettes. Christi also has her own YouTube channel, where she rates "vape products and juices".
