Do you use Wordpress? If you do, you better read this...
 
Don't toss those theme notification emails too quickly - you may need them! Those of you with #wordpressthemes   #wordpressplugins  that are getting notifications of updates galore - it's for security reasons. Don't fluff them off. There are many plugins that need to be updated for this security update, many GOOD theme authors are updating their themes. Time to update. If you need help or have done a lot of customization, get help from your web developer. This is not up to the hosting companies to do automatically for you, unless you have some sort of contract with them. Many hosting companies have updated the WordPress engine to handle the security updates no matter which version you are running. You may take this opportunity to make sure you are also running the most current version of WordPress - needs to start with a 4.1 at minimum. We are up to 4.2.1 as of today.

Wrong Calculation By Navigators And Assisters May Have Cost You Money

As I have mentioned over and over (and over)...Let an experienced broker handle your health insurance needs. No fees, no obligation and your rate is EXACTLY the same as if you went directly to the .gov website.

20-30 years of experience vs. someone that was just hired within the last few years (or few months!).

It's a no-starter.

Some families likely received lower subsidies than they were entitled to or were denied Medicaid coverage because of faulty calculations related to children who receive Social Security income.

Obamacare Supreme Court Ruling A Critical Decision

Imagine your health insurance rate increasing from $100 to $1,000. It sounds far-fetched and impossible doesn't it? But it could become a reality if the legality of federal subsidies in some states is struck down.

Personally, I believe Congress would place a temporary fix to avoid massive spikes in personal health insurance premiums, but stay tuned anyway.

Despite political opposition to the Affordable Care Act, more than 186,000 people in Louisiana signed up for health insurance through healthcare.gov. The vast majority of those received subsidies, ...

Cadillac Tax - Beware!

Actually, you have until 2018 to worry about if you will be impacted, but the tax bite will be substantial.

Briefly, Employers will charged a large tax (that may be passed onto consumers) if the healthcare coverage they provide to workers  exceeds a value of about $10,000.

It seem like a lot...And it is! But most persons don't realize the value of the benefits they receive on selected rich health insurance packages.

#HealthcareBenefits   #CadillacTax  
A mix of business groups and labor unions are pushing to tee up the next big Obamacare fight: killing its so-called Cadillac tax. It is, they say, the type of Obamacare “fix” that Republicans and Democrats can agree on — notwithstanding the problem of filling an $87 billion budget hole that nixing the levy would produce. Many expect...

Assurant Health Insurance Shutting Down, Unless They Are Sold

Assurant health insurance company. Who are they? Actually, they are a fairly large carrier that offers on and off Marketplace plans in many states. Individual and family coverage was also offered prior to the ACA legislation.

Of course, their rates have always been high...actually very high in many states. Couple that with massive losses and you wind up with a carrier about to fold.

Will other companies become the next victim of Obamacare. Yes, but probably not heavyweights BCBS, Aetna, Humana, or UnitedHealthcare.

I sleep in a different stadium every night. Tonight I will bed down at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. Section 26, just behind third base will be roped off for myself, and a few old Pitt Panther buddies from the 80s.

The Pirates beat the Cubs this afternoon 5-4, and that crowd has left. There are still many maintenance  workers here along with some other fans with passes.

Food tonight will be provided by Stargell's Wings and on the scoreboard,  we're going to watch some 3-D Pirates highlights from yesteryear.

Limited Health Insurance Networks Save Money

Boy do they ever! But...if you need to see a specialist or receive  additional treatment or therapy, make sure your provider is "in-network."

These new "X" networks are popular here in the Midwest. Have your broker check to ensure your doctors and hospitals are part of the limited network before you enroll. Otherwise, you may be better off paying a little more for the same plan with an expanded network.

#healthcare     #Networkproviders  
Consumers seem increasingly comfortable with narrow lists of hospitals or doctors, if it gets them a cheaper plan.

Healthcare Tip

If you move, don't forget to contact your broker or the Marketplace. Typically, you are required to enroll in a new plan since the service area is different.

Contracts are not automatically canceled unless you initiate the action.

I stopped there today for the first time and ordered a Gyro. Meat was tender and tasty and onions were done just right. My wife enjoyed the potato salad as well. And I met Mr. Scruffy himself! I will certainly be back.

Very good meal last night. The Chicken Marsala had a very good taste and the chicken was tender. The mashed potatoes were a bit bland and I wish roasted potatos were an option. Price is as expected and service was very good.
