Social Security Disability Benefits Claims

If a severe, persistent medical illness or disability has left you unable to make a living, federal benefits are available to provide compensation and financial benefits. There are two programs under the Social Security Act (SSA) that exist to provide money to people who can not work due to disabilities. These benefit programs are known as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Title XVI of the Act, and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Title II of the Act. The SSA has specific stipulations in place to decide whether or not a person is eligible for these programs. SSDI is funded by Social Security and Medicare taxes paid by both individuals and employers. These taxes are known as the Federal Insurance Contributions Act or FICA, and the amount you pay into the system while you are working determines the amount of your benefits.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability?

Qualifying for disability benefits is a difficult and tedious task. Many specific requirements must be met for each program in addition to proving that you have a disability that inhibits you from performing substantial gainful activity (SGA). SGA is defined as working enough to earn at least $ 700 per month, or $ 1,110 if you happen to be blind. According to the SSA, the term 'disability' refers to a physical or mental impairment that lasts for at least a year, or which will result in death. In addition to proving your disability, you must also provide evidence that there are…

Does Health Care Reform Fix The Medicare Part D Donut Hole

Does Health Care Reform Fix The Medicare Part D Donut Hole

Photo by: Hannah Gibbs / Unsplash

Medicare Part D is the prescription drug coverage under the Medicare program. This medicare plan can be somewhat complicated. The best source of accurate information about the Medicare "part d" plan is the official government Medicare web site. Medicare, like many government programs, may seem complicated at first but if you take your time you will be able to understand what is going on. Part D is specifically a little bit quirky.

Part D must be purchased from private insurance companies and health maintenance organizations. Coverage in Part D is voluntary. There are many rules regarding when you can sign up for Part D. You may have to pay a fine if you do not enroll in the right time period.

Congress and President Obama passed significant health care reform on March 23, 2010. The law is called The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Health care reform attempted to address the problem with the so called "donut hole". The dough hole was a major flaw in this Gov't program.

Part D will pay 75% of prescription drugs after a deductible is met up to a certain limit. When the limit is reach the patient has to pay one hundred per cent for prescription drugs until another limit is reached. At this point medicare will pay for ninety-five per cent of drugs. These terms are done on an annual basis. Each year the patient is obligated to pay the deductible and the limits are reset.

There are many decisions a senior citizen must make regarding prescript…

Breaking News on Healthy Heart, Long Life

Most doctors, including myself will tell you that a healthy heart is key to a long life lived in good health. Even better, when you take steps to care for your heart, you do your whole body a good turn. That's because many of the processes that underlie heart disease also contribute to the formation of other diseases.

Yet as modern science gets more advanced, new and exciting diagnostic tools become available. Just recently, I've researched some innovating indicators and risk factors that could have major contributors to heart disease.

Scientist are just starting to unveil breaking medical news about the effects of artery inflammation and a process called glycation that has a direct correlation to your heart health. And with heart disease being the leading killer in the United States, this information could have been an important healthy answer to preventing heart damage.

Reduce Your Heart Disease Risk Factors

Most heart disease discussions begin and end with cholesterol. That's unfortunate because there are many other important risk factors. Cholesterol is very important, but lower cholesterol alone is often not enough.

The problem begins when cholesterol is combined with other factors. Cholesterol by itself will not hurt you. But when you have high LDL cholesterol levels in the presence of free radicals or inflammation, the cholesterol can oxidize damage your arteries and forming plaques. Along with your concerns of cholesterol comes a new warning,…

Modern Medical Uniforms Have Changed the Way the Doctors Dress Themselves

Modern Medical Uniforms Have Changed the Way the Doctors Dress Themselves

Photo by: Farzad Nazifi / Unsplash

Medical personnel just can’t wear anything or everything while working inside the hospitals and hence, they need to rely on the use of different scrubs, lab coats and smocks to look professional while working. Nursing scrubs are mandatory at work and modern healthcare professionals have a wide range of options to choose from unlike their super seniors.

Hospitals are places where clean environment is a must so that spread of infection can be prevented significantly. Modern doctors have taken lesson from their super seniors who faced really tough time handling patients and operating them. Medical is a profession where doctors have to take immediate decisions and handle one project or patient after another. These repeated movements were the main reason behind spread of infection and disease as doctors used to operate or handle patients without using surgical scrubs. They used to wear a butcher apron to protect the clothes from blood stains and body fluids and sanitation or hygiene was thing of no existence.

Now the time has changed and since then various technological advancements and innovations have come into existence making it possible to treat patients while preventing the spread of infections. Varieties of nursing scrubs or surgical scrubs are now available to make the doctors look professional while ensuring health of the patients.

When the surgical scrubs were born, they were of typical green color and even now people assume green colored big clothing item when surgical…

New Health Bill Helps Residents in Need

For people living on, or close to the bread line, or with high demands on their life expenses finding and paying for health insurance has often been something that has been an expense that has been a painful one to pay.

There have been some recent changes in the health bills for residents of Mount Vernon, Ohio. This bill will re-structure the current existing plans that will help fund public health care initiatives, this gives hope to many people who are currently without health insurance, or feel that they can not get cover.

The way the bill works is it provides a national exchange for policy competition in which market forces can lower the costs of health insurance. This functions a little like a provider access organization, however on a larger scale and applying market rules. This should help the consumer to find cheaper health insurance options and fill the gaps for the thousands of people currently at risk with little or no insurance cover.

One of the key parts of this bill is the focus on public policy provisions to enable those who most need it to receive the cover that they require, this should help thousands, both in Mount Vernon and across the country, this approach should be adopted elsewhere .

In the Mount Vernon district alone approximately 65,000 residents will gain access to health insurance who previously had none, or limited insurance, in addition 11,000 small business could get tax relief by providing health care for employees. Sound good?…

Focus has primarily been on making health insurance an obligation for all Americans. There are also aims of reducing the budget deficit by $ 143 billion in the coming decade. Future focus is on guarantee issues and eliminating Medicare over-pay that might save another $ 177 billion.

Medical Malpractice and the Health Care Reform Bill

Medical Malpractice and the Health Care Reform Bill

Medical malpractice is certainly one of the most traumatizing accidents that could ever happen to an individual. Why? Medical professionals are supposed to be the people who should look after our health and welfare and because they are professionals we trust that they are very much knowledgeable with regards to the field that they have been practicing. So the idea that they might make a mistake that could result in injuries or even death, is really such a horrific thinking. Medical professionals can not afford to make a mistake but it does not mean that they will not ever make one. Medical malpractice is a very common accident that takes place in a hospital. This happens in an event when a medical personnel commits a mistake, no matter how small and simple it is, that is due to being negligent and careless. It does not only involve someone's death due to errors, that is a common misconception. Some examples of medical malpractice are:

  • Prescribing the wrong medicine due to absentmindedness
  • Failure to check on a patient's medical background before doing any treatment
  • When doctors and nurses fail to recognize or choose to ignore a medical problem that is addressed to a lethal injury and in the worst case scenario, even death.
  • Delay in treatment

Victims of medical malpractice can file a lawsuit against the violating person and the hospital itself and demand for the appropriate compensation. One can file a medical malpractice claim with the assistance of a…
