Is short-term health insurance right for you?

We have helped multiple people find a medical insurance coverage that is right for them and their situation.
Are short term insurance plans a viable option for you?

https://www.healthinsurance.org/short-term-health-insurance/

For 2.9 million in the coverage gap and nearly 13 million priced out of ACA-compliant coverage, short-term health insurance could be a much-needed bridge. Plans are now limited to 90 days in duration, but that's likely to change under the executive order that Trump signed in October 2017.

The U.S. Has Gone To War For Much Less Than What Healthcare Is Doing To America

Words can not express....

When I was around my son's age, it barely registered that Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan had been elected. However, even a middle-schooler can't miss what's going with this year's election. I attempted to put the oddities around the election into perspective for him. For example, economic distress c...

Patients lack information about imaging exams, study finds | FierceHealthcare

Doctors can do a better job providing patients with information before they go for an imaging exam, a new study found. One in five patients shows up for an imaging exam without any information about the test they are about to undergo, according to the study published in Radiology.

Some of the ideas in this article are great solutions and some are alarming. What is good are the many ideas and discussions on how to fix the healthcare system financially. What are your thoughts?

Experts have no shortage of innovative ideas to make health care more affordable. But what if part of the solution is bypassing insurance altogether?

Teen accuses world-famous Mayo Clinic of 'medical kidnapping'

This is alarming - Every Patient has a RIGHT to decide who and where they want to receive care from. This is not the first time I have seen this type of behavior in healthcare. Praises to the neurosurgeons who provided excellent care. I feel sorry that the family had to go through this.

A dying teenager's parents begged for her to be sent to the Mayo Clinic. The family says the world-renowned hospital saved her life and then tried to "medically kidnap" her.

It's the Monopolies, Stupid

Monopolies in healthcare are not new but are on the rise in order to save money and maintain profits. This articles does an excellent job of explaining how the drug companies control drug pricing and the health of many.

At the core of the nation’s drug pricing problem is one fundamental fact: Drug companies enjoy government-sanctioned and -enforced monopolies over the supply of many drugs. These monopolies result from patents awarded under federal law for novel molecules. Patents allow manufacturers to prevent co...

Helping You Get The Care You Need

Our mission is simply to help people get the care they need by partnering with patients, providers, and businesses to develop programs and solutions that are unique to their specific needs. Our services are designed around four pillars: Care management, Advocacy, Research & Resources, and Education. We call this the C.A.R.E approach. ​

Caring Support & Solutions began in 2012 out of the owner's vision to help others in the community that are in need of caring solutions. The drive to fulfill this need came from her experience not only as a registered nurse but also a caregiver for her mother. She started very young as a caregiver and has dealt with a multitude of caring needs.

Caring today occurs just about everywhere - in homes, doctors offices, hospitals, online, clinics, centers, stores, etc. It is important for consumers and providers to ensure that quality care is being delivered and effective communication is taking place. Unfortunately statistics, show that one of the biggest barriers to getting quality care is due to a lack of communication and fragmented care. Care Specialists, also known as patient or healthcare advocates, help remove barriers to get care that is needed.
