    Why Aren’t More People Comparison Shopping for Health Plans?

    Except for emergency or urgent care, Medicare Advantage coverage may not extend outside beneficiaries’ county or state. “If you’re in Albany, you may not be able to get care in New York City,” Dr. Jacobson said. Advantage plans also often require preauthorization from the insurer for services and drugs. With traditional Medicare, “you can see any provider you want to at any time, without getting prior approval,” Dr. Jacobson said. It’s accepted nationally.

    New auto insurance law forcing severely injured people to scramble for scarcer and scarcer care

    The first thing you notice about Jake Veeder is his horrific injuries. The second thing you notice is his absolutely killer smile, the kind that lights up his whole face. His mother is Tricia Smith. She has the same smile. Smith looks way too young to be the 23-year old Veeder’s mother. People mistake the two for brother and sister, or worse, girlfriend and boyfriend, all the time. “I hate it,” Veeder said, with just a tiny hint of that killer smile. I met mother and son, along with Melanie Olson, Veeder’s medical case manager, outside his new home, Maple

Most of your time traveling will probably be spent either on foot or in the subway. Depending on your job, you may need a car, even if you live in the city, especially if you are an entrepreneur who needs to take his equipment on the road.  If you live in a more rural area, having access to a functional set of wheels

Timothy’s Taverne in Plainville, Connecticut, told NBC News on Thursday. “We’ve had a bunch of these spells and witnessed the kitchen guys really taking heat from the stress of it

    Free health insurance for unemployed people: what’s the deadline to sign up?

    The American Rescue Plan included new insurance benefits for unemployment Americans which could help millions of people get free health insurance coverage for the rest of the year.

    More young people are buying life insurance because of COVID-19

    You can add another item to consumers’ pandemic shopping list: life insurance. The number of life insurance policies sold jumped 11% in the first quarter from the same time a year ago, according to the industry research firm Limra.
