Re: Medicare Open Enrollment

be aware if you drop your supplemental coverage and go to an Advantage plan, you will be unlikely to get back on supplemental coverage due to your pre-existing condition. Advantage plans are great, and far more affordable...when you're healthy.

Re: I’m sorry

I know how difficult this time of year can be when we lose loved ones. My mother, sister and father-in-law all died at Christmas time and it makes it hard to enjoy the holiday without their presence.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss, my sincere condolences

Good heavens...

Been a really rough month for me. Started off with my wife retiring on Nov 1st and it's gone downhill from that low point. First I saw Chrissy's powerful and extremely seductive pictures in one of her posts (Gross Reality) and fainted. I fell and banged up my CRT, which is no longer shiny. Left me b...

Re: Beginning an exercise program after getting an ICD

Welcome to the club for the beautiful everyone hates belonging to. With the first spasm I was told I went into v-tach. My cardiologist put a stent in the artery they thought was spasming, I was put on yet another medication and sent home. A week later another spasm which caused my heart to go into v...

Re: CPAP info on NPR

Am I right that the point was about a recent report the data collected by our CPAP is automatically transmitted to our prescribing doctor, the manufacturer and our insurance company ? One of the network news (ABC, CBS, NBC) HAD A DETAIL Report about the information insurers get real time from these....

Re: Comptemplating ICD

Welcome to the asylum. You are right to question whether this is warranted. In fact unless the rules have changed dramatically, the information you provided does not justify an ICD. The key factor insurance uses is the Ejection Fraction at or below 30%. At 65%, yours is normal. The Tachycardis (fast...

Re: Ischemic Cardiomyopathy and CRT-D

I've had so many heart attacks we don't keep score anymore. Had quad bypass and a shiny new porcine valve installed back in 07 (2007 for the challenged). EF fluttering around 15. The delay in my QRS is about a week (LBBB) and I've had a CRT-D for 2 years...I still look like crap according to all who...

Re: Pre existing conditions and insurance

one of the toughest decisions I had to make every year was healthcare coverage. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I agonized over this decision. What company to go with, what was the best coverage possible, what were hidden costs, how reliable was the insurer and so on. Not for me, for all...

Re: Good Article

I think the scientists and physicians who develop lifesaving/prolonging devices and medication are probably invested solely for the sake of preserving life. I think you have to have that mindset and love of science/biology to have the curiosity to do this job. Corporation management is more likely ...

OT - Farewell Tour...

Well my friends, and Mrag, this is my final farewell tour. Nah, no such luck, I'm not giving up my legendary golf club collection just yet. This is my lovely bride's last week before she hangs up her paddle, says good bye to the kiddies, and walks away from a 25 year career in elementary education. ...
