An overview on The Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement Insurance plan is a type of private health insurance policy offered by the private insurance companies selling Medicare policies to their original Medicare policyholders. The Medicare Supplement Plans helps the policyholders to provide some of the health care expenses, which are not or partly provided by the original Medicare policies. It helps to fill the gap that is left behind by the original policies between their policy coverage and the original medical expenses of the policyholder. And for that reason the Medicare Supplement Plans are also known as the Medigap policies.

To enroll in a Medigap policy a person should already be a beneficiary of original Medicare part A and B. The person needs to pay a Medigap part B premium on monthly basis with a premium to the insurance company. It is always better to get enrolled for a Medigap policy within thirty days of getting the Medicare and it will help in obtaining an improved coverage at a better rate. Though the Medicare Supplement Plans are totally under the administration of the private insurance companies, but still they are allowed to sell only 12 standardized Medigap plans. And these plans are labeled under the letter covers A through L. Each of these policies provides different set of policy coverage and repayment plans. And with these it is possible to fill up the gap left behind by the.

As stated earlier the Medigap insurance plans are labeled under the letter covers A through L. And each of these plans provides different benefits. But the plans under the same latter cover should cover the same benefits irrespective of any company you buy it from. But the policy premium may vary from company to company. The part A plan deals with the basic benefits of and of course with least expenses. While the Plan B covers somewhat more than plan A. It not only covers the basic benefits but also provides Medigap part A deductibles. Plan C also includes the basic benefits along with Medicare Part A deductible and skilled nursing coinsurance with foreign travel emergency. It also provides hospital and medical costs along with blood. Next is Medigap part D. The part D plan provides all the benefits of plan C and also it includes at home remedy as an extra benefit. Medigap plan E provides preventive care along with all the facilities provided by plan D. Medigap plan F is for those patients who consult with doctors who do not agree to Medicare project. It also includes blood related costs. The plan G is also similar to plan F also with the extra feature of at home recovery. Medigap plan H includes prescribed drug coverage. Plan I is also similar to plan H along with the facility of excess doctor charge and at home recovery. Next is plan J. This plan covers all the benefits that are offered by Medicare plans. And for that reason this is the most expensive of all the above-mentioned plans. Therefore it can be said that this plan is only for those who can meet the expense. Both of the plans K and L offer the basic benefits and help to cover large amount but at a lower premium with a higher deductibles. These two plans have been newly launched and not yet widely obtainable.

The New Mr. America: Bankrupt, Diseased and Running Out of Options

With a military rifle in one hand and a bottle of prescription medications in the other, the new “Mr. America” is over-fed, under-nourished, over-medicated, over-spent and “over there” (waging war in the Middle East). And soon, with Obama’s new disease care reform proposals, America will find itself destitute and diseased, unable to climb out of the medication dependence pit it has dug for itself.

See the political cartoon on this topic here:

To understand why this is true from a financial point of view, take a look at these numbers:

If you read the actual federal budget for 2009, it’s an astonishing $3.1 trillion. The size of the number itself is mind-boggling, but it’s even more disturbing when you realize just how much of the federal budget is spent on these three things:

  1. WAR
  3. DEBT

In fact, let me ask you this question right now: What percentage of the federal budget do you think is spent on these three things? War, Disease and Debt.

Is it 10 percent? Twenty-five percent? Fifty percent?

Keep going…

Of course, if you actually work in Washington, you won’t even describe these as “War, Disease and Debt.” Instead, you call them:


It all sounds much nicer when phrased that way. But these terms are intentionally deceptive. We’re not really “defending” our way into Iraq, Afghanistan and seventy-five other countries where we have a military presence. Spending on “health care” doesn’t have anything to do with health (it’s all about disease). And people who say spending more debt money to “help the economy” are mathematical retards. You can’t get yourself out of debt by spending more money (even though V.P. Joe Biden insists you can…).

So are you ready for the actual number?

It’s an eye-opener. The actual percentage of the U.S. federal budget spent on WAR, DISEASE and DEBT is 87 percent.

Here’s how it breaks down according to publicly-available numbers: (Source =,_2009 )

Total U.S. Federal Budget for 2009: $3.1 trillion

1) WAR: Department of Defense ($515.4 billion) + War on Terror ($145.2 billion) + Dept. of Veterans Affairs ($44.8 billion) + Dept. of Homeland Security ($37.6 billion) = $743 billion

2) DISEASE: Medicare ($408 billion) + Medicaid ($224 billion) + Dept. of Health and Human Services ($70 billion) =$702 billion

3) DEBT: Debt to the people: Social Security ($644 billion), Social Security Administration ($8.4 billion), Welfare ($360 billion) and Interest on National Debt ($260 billion) = $1,272 billion

(Note: This does not even include the financial cost of the War on Iraq or the War in Afghanistan, as those are budgeted separately as appropriations and are not included in the Dept. of Defense budget. So the actual numbers are far worse than what’s shown here…)

Combined spending on War, Disease and Debt: $2,717 billion ($2.7 trillion), which is 87% of the total expenditures by the federal government ($3.1 trillion).

How do you dig yourself out of this hole?

For every tax dollar you send to Washington (and it’s about to become a whole lot more of ’em), 87 cents gets spent on war, disease and debt. That leaves just 13 cents on the dollar for roads, schools, parks, technology, science, the environment, adult education and other programs.

If you spent 87% of your own household income on war, disease and debt, leaving only 13 cents on the dollar for food, clothing, transportation and entertainment, how long would your own finances stay solvent? Not very long…

It doesn’t take a financial genius to realize that the United States of America has dug itself into a financial trench so deep and so infected with really bad planning that there is virtually no way it can get out. As a result, the American people are increasingly bankrupt, diseased and homeless. (I predict a new wave of tent cities springing up across the American landscape as increasing numbers of Americans lose their jobs and their homes.)

“Mr. America” is burned out, stressed out, tapped out and about to be rubbed out.

It is only a matter of time before economic reality sets in and the American people find their currency is phased out, too.

An economic prison to keep you trapped and penniless

It’s easy to see this from afar (from South America, in my case, where I live full time): America is living in a fantasy world, where the laws of economics have been (temporarily) suspended. There’s no such thing as too much spending. No such thing as too many prescription drugs or vaccines. No such thing as too much war. It’s all justifiable by the relentless fools in Washington who claim, “We saved the economy!”

Because, you see, we are past the point of dealing with reality in America. There will be no saving the nation from financial demise. There will be no meaningful health care reform. There will be no real changes that preserve your freedom or your bank account. Instead, one hundred percent of the efforts are now focused on preserving the illusions that keep America artificially propped up like a morbid human puppet.

The new Congressional bills, the financial bailouts, the empty talk of health care reform — these are all designed to distract you from the sobering, unavoidable and simple truth: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born inside a prison that you cannot smell, taste, or touch. A prison for your mind. [Recognize it?]

That prison keeps you working 60-hour weeks. It keeps you paying your taxes. It keeps you medicated and indoctrinated like a slobbering idiot who buys brand-name products because the logos seem somehow emotionally familiar (TV programming). It keeps you slaving away your precious hours, shoveling the fruits of your labor into a mindless, heartless machine of Big Government that has already mortgaged your assets, sacrificed your health and stolen your future.

And there’s always a seductive motivation beckoning you to sacrifice more. If you only work another job, you’ll be able to afford that giant TV screen you’ve always wanted. Here’s a credit card to make it easy, or you can just sign over your home. Here, take this vaccine shot for your own protection. Vote for me, and I’ll give you free health care. I’ll stabilize the economy by spending future generations into yet more debt. Don’t worry about paying anything back… we’ll let the next President deal with that.

The fraud continues, year after year, with new faces and names at the helm, but the same old failed thinking at the core. You cannot spend your way to prosperity, you must SAVE your way there. You cannot make a population healthy by drugging more people. You cannot make peace by waging war. And you cannot make a nation great by abandoning the real needs of the people and selling out to corporations and their lobbyists.

Sadly, while Mr. America was once a healthy, thriving, hard-working individual, he’s now a jobless, indebted medicated heart patient with a caffeine habit and an upside-down mortgage on the home he’s about to lose. And the worst part is that the lawmakers in Washington are doing everything in their power to make sure Mr. America stays that way.

Medicare Supplement Plans For The Better Advantage of Health Insurance

As it is known that the original Medicare has certain gaps that prevents the Original Medicare policies to pay for all the health care services that you may need. Therefore when you are in the original Medicare you shall need some extra help from the Medicare Supplement Insurance plans or the Medigap policies. These Medicare supplement plans are health insurance works as supplementary help along with the original Medicare for the costs it does not cover. These Medicare supplement plans are sold by the private health insurance companies and by the law these companies can offer only 12 standard medigap insurance plans. These plans are named A through L. Each of these plans has a different set of benefits. But there are certain terms and conditions regarding the Medicare supplement plans. As for example: beginning in 2006, Medigap Plans H, I, and J, cannot be sold with prescription-drug benefits, although people who already had those policies can keep them.

There are several other circumstances in which the Medicare supplement plans cannot be used. As it should be known to all who are interested in purchasing Medicare supplement plans it is essential that the person willing to have the Medigap policies must be under the original Medicare plan to get enrolled for the Medigap plans. If you are already having the Medicare supplement plans and you switch over to the Medicare Advantage plan form the original Medicare then you cannot use the Medigap plans unless you switch back to the original Medicare. This is very much essential as the Medicare supplement plans are meant to work with the Original Medicare only.

However, all the Medicare supplement plans cover the basic benefits of the Medicare plans A and B. The Medicare plans A and B are considered to be the most basic plans and therefore the basic benefits of these two plans are included in all of the Medicare supplement insurance plans. However, before deciding the Medicare supplement plan to choose for yourself it is better for you to go through the offer documents of all the Medigap plans and then select the one which seems to be the most perfect one for you. Another important thing that should be mentioned in this context is that from whatever company you may purchase the Medicare supplement plans the company is bound to provide the same benefits. For instance, all Plan C policies have the same benefits no matter which company sells the plan. However, the premium charges can vary.

You can also seek the help of some insurance agent to help you choose the perfect Medigap policy for you. This is a better idea to help of some insurance agent as they are better aware of the insurance policies of different companies and the premium rates therefore it can always be in your advantage so that you can better figure it out which plan to choose. Sometimes it is often seen that some Medicare supplement plans, though apparently seem to be less profitable can actually save you a lot of money in the form of diductables.

Three Adjustments to Improve Your Health

It doesn’t matter what your opinion is concerning the public health care debate, everyone wants to be healthy. Besides the positives of a healthy lifestyle, illness usually means an increase in bill during a time when familial budgets are already stretched far too thin. Many people are searching for expensive and complicated programs to improve their overall health and to avoid illness; however, there are simple things that people can do to help improve their health. Here are a few simple things that people can change in their everyday life that will help them be happier and healthier.

Drink More Water

This is a very simple suggestion, but studies have shown that the more water that your body has the better that it functions. An increase in water helps your body flush out waste elements, and it also doesn’t allow harmful items to linger in your digestive track. It is important that the increase in liquids be water, and not juice mixes or sodas. Both sodas and juice mixes are usually high in sodium which will increase the amount of water your body retains. Also carbonation has been proven to be detrimental to a healthy diet when people are trying to lose weight. If you have a problem drinking water straight from the tap, then a possible solution would be to get a filtration system. Getting a good filtration system will improve the taste of the tap water, and will eliminate contaminants that may be lingering in your local water supply. A good filtration system doesn’t have to be anything expensive. The filtration jugs at your local store do the same job as effective as an expensive faucet mounted system. Drinking more water is a cheap easy way to improve your health. A healthy adult should try to drink at least a gallon a day.

Take a Good Multivitamin

Sustained Release High Potency B "50"...

Even a person that is eating a very well rounded diet will still lack vitamins and minerals in their daily nutrition. That is why taking a daily vitamin is very important. The multivitamin will serve as a filler to give your body the elements that it is lacking. Think of daily vitamins acting in the same way that extras act during a film. Most of the time extras in the film are important to the story of the film. They just blend into the background and provide the filler to make the film appear to be more realistic. Yet, during certain scenes it is required for the extras to play a larger role, to be a feature extra, and thus making the film better. That is the way that vitamins work in your diet. They will linger in the background filling holes, until your diet lacks a certain element. Then the vitamins will fill that need in your body ensuring that your body continues to perform at a top level. Studies have shown that vitamins will increase the effectiveness of your immune system, and provide a person with more energy.

Floss Your Teeth

Brushing your teeth everyday is very important, but a shocking number of Americans don’t floss every day. It seems like an annoying and trivial practice to do every day, but a healthy practice of flossing everyday will improve the health of your gums and prevent cavities. It will also prevent the growth of disease causing bacteria in the cracks of your teeth. Flossing is a simple. It is also inexpensive. Not only does flossing protect an important asset to everyone, their smiles, but it will also improve your breath and overall health.

Have a Healthy Scalp For Better Hair

One of the most crucial parts of a proper hair care regimen is to have a proper care for your scalp. This is because the scalp is that part of your body that provides all the nutrition to your hair. The scalp plays a very crucial role in the proper growth and health of the hair. If anyhow your scalp doesn’t get its necessary nutrition or gets damaged by any chance then it is your hair that is going to be the ultimate sufferer. And perhaps you know very well how harsh it is too spend the bad hair days. Therefore your scalp needs to be taken good care of so that you can avoid scalp damage. And for that purpose we present you in this article some tips relating to your better scalp care regimen.

For better scalp care treatment you need to know the properties of your scalp. To judge whether your scalp is more oily or is it dry one is much important. As for different types of scalp there are different caring treatments. Whatever your scalp type may be, here in this article we shall discuss about some of the basic scalp care tips. For a better maintained scalp it is obvious that you need to maintain a very balanced diet providing all the essential nutrients that your scalp and hair is in need of. All the essential proteins, vitamins and also the minerals should be present in proportionate amount in your diet if you want a healthy scalp. You should also remember that the nutrition you provide to your scalp though your diet would be channeled into your hair. Therefore it is proven that the hair gets its nutrition from the scalp.

Now let us come to the point. If your scalp is too much oily or if it is too dry, both are not good for the health of your scalp. Too much oil in the scalp makes it sticky and the dust and the dirt particles gets stick to it as well as forming layers they prevent the proper scalp circulation. Therefore regular washing is a must if you have an oily scalp. Shampooing on every alternate day may help a lot in this matter. But if your scalp is dry then you should be careful about the washing. In that case you should avoid regular shampoo. Shampooing once or twice a week would be enough for this type of scalp. This is because shampoo washes away the essential oils of the hair and the scalp along with the extra oil and makes your scalp more dry.

If you do have a dry scalp avoid the over drying of the scalp as much as possible. Blow-drying in that case should be strictly forbidden. You should also try to wash your hair in lukewarm water as hot water promotes dry scalp. Besides washing you should also exfoliate your scalp with the help of a gentle scrub so that the dead cells of the scalp may not form layers on your hair. Along with that proper moisturizing is also essential for your scalp. Always use a good moisturizer and the one that suits you for moisturizing your scalp. While washing your hair you should also massage your scalp in a circular motion. It promotes proper blood flow to the scalp, sooths the nerves, relaxes muscles and keeps the scalp flexible.
