Access to quality healthcare is a fundamental human right. The US federal government has been actively developing healthcare programs and plans to ensure more people can access and afford quality health care services. To achieve this objective, the government makes use of Medicaid and Medicare Advantage Plans.
Under the Medicare plan, people are able to choose between enrolling in the original Medicare and upgrading to a Medicare Advantage Plan. The original Medicare is provided by the federal government exclusively and covers hospital expenses (Part A) and medical expenses (Part B). The cover allows you to access healthcare services from any hospital or doctor in the country.
While the original Medicare gives you access to countrywide healthcare services like InnovaCare Health, you may need to enroll for various Medicare Advantage Plans to enjoy additional medical services not included in the original Medicare cover. Medicare Advantage Plans are privately provided healthcare plans where private companies sign contracts with the government to extend the services.
The common Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs), and Private Fee-For-Service (PFFS). Apart from the above plans, you may also need specialized plans such as Provider Sponsored Organizations (PSOs), Special Needs Plans (SNPs), and Medicare Medical Savings Account (MSAs).
All Medicare Advantage Plans will enable you to access all the services covered under the original Medicare. This implies that you will be required to pay your Part A and Part B premiums where applicable. Alternatively, your Medicare Advantage Plan could provide all Part A and Part B services albeit at terms and conditions different from those outlined in the original Medicare.

Most Medicare Advantage Plans will cover additional health care services not included in the original Medicare cover. While you may have medical expenses for dental checkups, vision care, or joining a wellness program covered by Medicare Advantage Plans, it is important to check with your provider first before taking any service.
All Medicare Advantage Plans must also limit your out-of-pocket expenses on health care services. In 2016, the limit was set at $6850 for all the holders of HMOs. Additionally, you are protected from paying beyond the limit set by the original Medicare for copays involving services such as chemotherapy or dialysis.
It is important to note that most Advantage Plans are location sensitive and may require you to get a referral from your primary provider before accessing services from other areas.
InnovaCare is leading in the provision of Medicare Advantage Plans in North America. Led by a highly experienced team, InnovaCare remains committed to providing unique and personalized healthcare services to its clients. Its current President and CEO, Dr. Rick Shinto, is a symbol of commitment and professionalism having been a clinical officer for over 20 years.
InnovaCare also enjoys the leadership of Penelope Kokkinides who is currently serving as the organization’s Chief Administration Officer. Ms. Penelope Kokkinides brings on board over 20 years of experience handling government health care programs and managed care services.

This generation’s weight loss pioneer, Nutrimost has recently filed an enormous lawsuit against its rival company, Healthy Living. Healthy Living has allegedly plagiarized one of Nutrimost’s high-conversion promotional videos.
According to credible sources, the suit claims that Healthy Living posted the same video, sans the text that boasts the Nutrimost brand name and the proceeded to replace it with “The Can’t Lose Diet.” The rip-off of this video took place on the Cantlosediet.com website.
Nutrimost’s attorneys also state that every detail of the video is exactly identical- except for the replacement of the brand name with the name of “Can’t Lose Diet” per the documents filed to the Federal court in Manhattan.
Healthy Living also retained all the original testimonials meant to testify in behalf of Nutrimost’s diet. It was reported that even after Nutrimost sent healthy Living a cease and desist order that they insisted on keeping the video up and disregarded any consideration of imposing copyright infringement damages on the Nutrimost brand name and company reputation.
Since official papers were filed with the Federal court, Healthy Living has finally taken Nutrimost seriously in their efforts to get justice for this matter and have alas removed the video indefinitely from everywhere it was published on the web.
However, Nutrimost is showing no signs of backing down and is still seeking over 300,000 dollars in damages for losses caused by the theft of the video.
Nutrimost is a viable company in the weight loss niche that has garnered an unprecedented reputation and has built its company as of late on its scientifically and medically proven “Ultimate Fat Loss System.”
The “Ultimate Fat Loss System” is a diet that claims and has proven that it can assist dieters in losing from 20lbs to 40lbs in only a month and 10 days (40 days.)

I have never been a big fan of the prison technology solution industry. However, in the recent event where Securus shone light to the wrongdoings of GTL made me have a change of heart. Like everyone else who has been using services offered by these companies, whether calls or video connection, I for the longest time had the misconception that they were all after taking advantage of desperate clients. Clients that saw them as the only means to connect their loved ones with the outside world and make their stay in prison more comfortable.
This is just a misunderstanding. A bad experience with one of the players in the industry would lead to negative perception of the whole industry. Glad that people know better now. This is after Securus took the bold step to highlight the lack of integrity in GTL. For the longest time GTL had been treating their customers with total lack of integrity. Years ago, the company had been penalized after been charged with the crime of overcharging, double charging and even adding time on calls so as to take advantage of the unsuspecting clients. This is a classic case of greed. Unluckily, this was projected to the whole industry. Reason being that even after being convicted, they did not try the least bit to change.
Securus, recently awarded with an A+ rating from BBB, decided that it was time they spoke on behalf of the whole industry. The industry’s reputation had been severed and f nothing was done, they faced extinction. GTL has been given enough chances to change. Or what would you say about being given 18 years just to change? Big up to Securus and other companies like it who do everything they can to protect industry clients and industry reputation.
Online reputation management is becoming a necessary part of doing business. No matter what industry sector you or your company serve, people are going to say things about you online. While you cannot control what people say directly, you can help prevent the spread of bad publicity. When negative content does surface, the best way to fight it is to have positive content published that outweighs the bad. You not only want good press surfacing about you or your company, you also want to make sure your employees or fellow executives also are receiving good publicity. The key in all of this is making sure the first page of search results for you or your company are positive results, as well as social media pages.
Probably one of the largest sources for attacks on a company’s reputation is on review sites, or competitor company blogs. Sometimes the reviews posted about your company are completely false, sometimes even from automated accounts with information pre-programmed into them. Other times they may be customers who had a bad experience with your company, sometimes an experience that’s been resolved, but sometimes only partial truths are stated in the posts. When bad reviews are posted, you might be tempted to lash out at the people who posted them, but that can lead to damaging your reputation even more.
The best solution to dealing with bad search results is to try and have the content removed if possible. If untrue or defamatory content is posted, you might be able to have it removed by filing a lawsuit if necessary, but sometimes all you need to get rid of bad content is a company like SearchCleanup.com. This company will clean up negative news about your company and have them removed through their proprietary methods.
SearchCleanup.com can clean up bad news online, so it’s wise to contact them right away for your case. All you have to do is go to the website and fill out the information form and a specialist will contact you about how they’ll address your search results. You’ll also get a free quote on their service price. Find Search Cleanup on Facebook to learn more.
A recent article on pr.com detailed a report put out by Madison Street Capital covering the state of the Mergers and Acquisitions market. In the report Madison street detailed the current rise in mergers and acquisitions market, then detailed some of the reasons for the increase.
The report by Madison Street Capital showed that 42 deals were either announced or closed by hedge funds in 2015. That is a marked increase from the 32 reported 2014. The transaction volume also reportedly increased by 27 percent over the same period of time.

Assets held by hedge fund are at record highs even though most hedge strategies only had a mediocre performance in 2015. This is because despite the lackluster performance of the hedge funds institutional investors are eagerly investing in merger and acquisition deals.
Institutional investors are making these allocations in the sector with hopes of getting higher returns required to cover their increasing liabilities. At the same time, many managers of smaller hedge funds are finding it increasingly difficult to attract new investment capital causing the portfolio to operate below optimal capacity. Managers are dealing with pressure to lower fees, while simultaneously incurring higher operational costs. As a result of these factors, hedge fund managers are considering alternative strategies.
Karl D’Cunha, Senior Managing Director at Madison Street Capital indicated the environment for deal making will be even stronger in 2016 than in 2015, with many different deal structures used to make accommodations for both buyers and sellers. Revenue share stakes, incubator deals, profit and earnings stakes and bolt-on deals along with traditional merger and acquisitions are some of the ways these deals are being structured.

The sentiments by made by Glen Beck that George Soros was running a shadow government; hell bent on destroying the American political system bears echoes of past anti-Semitic line of attacks says Jonathan Schell of the Nation. In piece published in December, 2010 Shell was astonished that anti-Semitic elements, from governments to individuals continue to prop their hateful agenda every 100 years or so with utmost consistency to the chagrin of the masses. The situation gets even worse when anti-Semitic brigades are only left with crazier considerations, as this raises the possibility of even crazier actions. Examples of historical tyrants include Hitler and Stalin. In the early 1950’s under Stalin’s watch, anti-Semitic trials permeated much of Soviet occupied Eastern Europe.
During that time, many people were accused of “cosmopolitanism” and Zionism. Interestingly, the anti-Semitic purge by Stalin was only cut short following his death, Shell added. The anti-Semitic wave being witnessed in later years is largely fed by the events that took place at the start of the 20th Century, thanks to the infamous forged proclamation of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” the writer observes. Under this plan, Jews were falsely accused of secretly planning to subvert regimes everywhere and take over the world. To the contrary, totalitarian took over took advantage of the conspiracy to perpetuate fear and justify their intentions of world domination. To achieve this mirror effect, totalitarians decided to remove themselves from facts and reality through contempt.
George Soros – Forbes
One way to do this is purporting to account for the inner operations of history to divorce from facts. Non factuality then became the fodder the conspiracy theorist needed to make their plans work. However, the satisfaction of embracing world fantasy was detrimental to those who believed in organized insanity and fact checking. A flashback today reveals that every time there is need to create an illusion of reality in the political front, an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory is advanced. This makes the removal of factuality appear more like a release from burden and a potent liberation to tumultuous and often frustrating efforts of seeing thing as they are according to George Soros Ukraine. Back to Glen Beck, the author acknowledges that Beck takes right-wing entertainment to a whole new level thanks to likeminded prodigies like Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage.
Schell observed that the Fox contributor can switch between different positions in an instant; like turning from a weepy, self abasing recovering alcoholic to an abrasive moralist. He adds that most demagogues have something like a clown in them, but this is more deliberate and controlled in case of Beck because of his political clout as a revered member of the Tea Party. A similar rhetoric is replicated by the Republican Party, which often denies the facts and reality as most totalitarians do. For example, their incessant branding of Obama as a Socialist, foreigner or Muslim. In conclusion, Schell avows that it is easy to assess Beck’s career as nothing more than fraud, However, his centrality in the scheme of things makes this idea obstinate.
