Depression – You’re Covered

Depression - You're Covered

Everyone feels a little sad once in a while. We may feel a little depressed over something but typically we feel better in a few days. Depression is much more than a little sadness and may interfere with a person’s daily activities. It affects not only the depressed person but the people that love and care about them as well. A person may feel hopeless, helpless, and tired. They may feel that nothing will ever change and things will never get better. These feelings are often difficult to deal with and may even cause the depressed person to have thoughts of hurting themselves or someone they love.

Depression

Depression is common and more common in men than women but can occur at any age. There are many things that can cause a person to feel depressed. Maybe the person lost his job and they are overwhelmed by the bills that have piled up and don’t have the money to pay for it. Maybe there has been a death in the family. Other factors could include such things as, a traumatic experience, stress, hormonal changes, or any combination of things. There is no one definite reason because each person deals with things in life differently.

A professional help

No matter what the reason for the depression a person is experiencing, there is help. If a person is feeling tired, irritable, and restless or having difficulty concentrating, and especially in severe cases, having thoughts of suicide, they should seek help from a medical professional. Most insurance policies will cover treatment, but someone must check with their personal health insurance plan to find exactly what they are covering. Most plans include doctor visits and prescriptions for depression. A medical professional can help by prescribing the necessary medication and directing you to other professionals …

Lack of Health Insurance Reimbursements

Lack of Health Insurance Reimbursements

Individuals who are insured with a particular medical insurance provider seem to forget that the health insurance provider is a business like any other thriving business in their local community. It is obviously true that all providers offer a unique service to the public, but it still remains a business just the same.

There are times when an individual will fill out a health insurance claim form and automatically expect to receive reimbursement as provided for through the terms of their individual health policy. This is not always the way the medical health care issues are executed.

It is very important for individuals to make the time to read their particular medical plan and the attached addendums to gain a full understanding of what they are covered for and what they are not covered. This will help to clear up any future misunderstanding between the health insurance provider and the insured. A few of the causes for non-reimbursement regarding  insurance claims are.

1.    Intentional suicide during the first two years of purchasing an individual medical policy

2.    Death through the act of war because most insurance providers exclude any military action

3.    Deliberate attempt to cause personal bodily harm

4.    All cosmetic surgeries

5.    All treatment procedures for substance abuse because this is considered a deliberate act

6.    Pregnancy and all preventive testing

7.    Dental care unless you have an additional, separate medical insurance policy for dental  care

8.    Vision, hearing, and elective surgeries

9.    Alternative methods of health  treatment such as holistic medicine

The health coverage as a rule must take in more healthy insured as opposed to taking in those individuals who are generally ill or have long-term pre-existing health care issues that require medical care treatment on a regular basis. Currently there are three main issues for …

The Best Thing an Owner Can Do for Their Business Is Continue to Breathe

The Best Thing an Owner Can Do for Their Business Is Continue to Breathe

One of the best things a business owner can do for their business is continue to breathe. It sounds simple but for some business owners the hardest part about business ownership is finding time for themselves.

Health can be defined in a range of ways but the way I see it is; health is the absence of illness and the presence of vitality. Vitality is that energy and exuberance that comes from someone who is well rested, with energy to burn and the focus to put that energy to good use. I know many business owners that miss the mark when it comes to their own health.

Often business owners believe they need to work 24/7, putting themselves into a situation where it is difficult to sustain for the long term. If your business does not allow you the time to look after yourself over the long term, what makes you think the business will even last that long… Or that you will? By having your business over reliant upon you, it is likely you are starting a cycle that will turn into a cyclone, that can only result in a path of destruction.

What happens is this: first you begin to work all of the time. You are working in your business and doing the hard yards and there is a part of you that thinks ‘this is what I have to do for my business to continue’. You are being a martyr. The pressure on you builds until you are working so much you lose contact with your friends and family. Little did you know, that they were the support system of your life and without them you are left unsupported. Anyone who thinks that they have to do it alone is suffering from what I like to …

Is Dieting For A Dummy?

Is Dieting For A Dummy?

Do you believe that dieting actually helps you lose weight? I don’t think so! And I’ll tell you why. In my observation of people who go on “diets,” it seems to put more stress on them, deprive them of the foods they like, make them GORGE when they decide to cheat, and generally makes them very unhappy. Not only are they unhappy, but sometimes this unhappiness makes them GAIN weight instead of lose it.

So what is the SECRET to maintaining a healthy weight? There are numerous ways (unless you have a thyroid or other disorder) in which to stay, fit, healthy, happy and maintain a good weight. The first thing you need to do is to FORGET the idea of dieting and stop focusing on how fat you think you are or how you don’t like your body, and start focusing on the idea of a healthy lifestyle.

That is the absolute best advice anyone can give you. And all of these get-thin-quick plans or diets prescribed by this guru or this specialist or this DOCTOR, don’t usually help a person STAY slim or lose weight. Why? Because as soon as you stop their plan/diet, all bets are off! Not only do people gain the weight they lost back, but they also often gain more weight than before. This can’t be healthy or a good idea.

The real truth is: thinness is a state of mind! Remember the book “Think Thin?” I never read it, but the concept of it actually makes a lot of sense to me. If you have a “thin” mentality, you will somehow manage to stay thin. If you have always been on the heavy side, then this kind of thinking is very foreign to you and not a part of your paradigm. Don’ worry, …
