We Like Our Health Insurance And Working From Home

Jan Dubauskas is the Vice President of Healthinsurance.com.

We have experienced a lot of change throughout the course of the pandemic that has required us to reconsider our priorities and become nimble in the way we work and how we reach out to our clients. Many were skeptical that these changes would lead to similar productivity. However, as we prioritize our health during the pandemic, working from home has become important, and many (24%, according to CNBC) have adapted so well that they want to keep doing it.

When we first started working from home, the primary concern for many was to set up an office, retain camaraderie, and continue meeting with clients. During the spring, as I watched as annual springtime conferences got canceled or sent to an online format, I keenly felt the void previously filled by those intense social interactions. It seemed that with a bit

Buoy Health CEO founding story and staying afloat in the pandemic

  • Dr. Andrew Le lost his home in a fire shortly before he pitched his company, Buoy Health, to investors.
  • “I literally didn’t have a place to live,” Lee said. At the time, he was couch-surfing. 
  • Now, his health information company helps more than 9 million people, and he figured out how to get health insurers and employers to pay for it.
  • Early in the coronavirus pandemic, Buoy emerged early with a new tool that helped people understand their symptoms and risks. 
  • Business Insider named Le one of its “30 under 40” leaders transforming healthcare. 

Dr. Andrew Le had little else besides the clothes on his back when he pitched his company idea to investors in 2014. 

At the time, he was couch surfing after his apartment burned down in a fire. Even before that, though, he and his three cofounders had been living off the little savings they had.

Uganda: Health Centre Gets Shs251m for Renovation

The expansion of Bushenyi Health Centre IV has started, with residents optimistic that this will lead to improvement in service delivery.

Mr David Tweheyo Betega, the Town Clerk of Bushenyi-Ishaka Municipal Council, said Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation gave Shs251 million for the works.

“The funds are being used for remodelling and expansion of existing buildings to create more space, especially outpatient ward, laboratory and clinic. The space has been very small,” Mr Betega said last Friday.

He said the work is being done by Konjex Investment Ltd and is expected to be complete in two months.

Mr Betega added that they need Shs59 million to equip the theatre.

Bushenyi Health Centre IV is the only government health facility in the municipality and it also serves people outside the town.

Health, function fuel kitchen plans today

         The kitchen is a home’s hot spot. But a kitchen’s design trends aren’t trendy when its composition and construction are dictated by how people really live, says Jonas Carnemark, whose eponymous design-build firm is based in Bethesda, Maryland.

         “The self-isolation caused by the coronavirus pandemic has placed a magnifying lens on home design, especially in the kitchen,” says the 33-year certified kitchen designer, as designated by the National Kitchen and Bath Association. “The kitchen isn’t just a place where people prepare and eat food. It’s the heart and hub of a home, where everyone gathers before and after meals, too.”

         The NKBA’s “Living Impacts Design” research was released during the first quarter of 2020, and highlights consumers’ kitchen inclinations based on more than 750 completed industry surveys. Influential changes to kitchen design include: plans for aging in place; homeowners’ need to escape from a chaotic world; a desire to live

Queen Elizabeth to honour UK health workers during the pandemic

LONDON – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth will recognise the work of hundreds of doctors, nurses, fundraisers and volunteers during the COVID pandemic when the her annual birthday honours list is published next month.

The list, which was due to be published in June, was postponed in order to add nominations for people playing key roles in the early months of the outbreak. It will be released on Oct. 10.

Britain has recorded the worst death toll in Europe and one of the worst economic contractions of any leading nation since the pandemic took hold in March.

Queen Elizabeth has made very few public appearances during that time but she has delivered a number of rallying messages to the nation and appeared in video conference calls with care workers and members of the military.

The honours have been awarded since Queen Victoria’s reign in the 19th century and aim to recognise not

City presents jail renovation plan to council committee as an alternative to new mental health facility

At a meeting of the New Orleans City Council’s Criminal Justice Committee last week, city officials presented the most detailed look yet at plans to retrofit a single floor of the New Orleans jail in order to create a suitable space to house detainees with acute and subacute mental illness — and to avoid the construction of a controversial new 89-bed jail facility known as Phase III.

The meeting on Thursday also signaled a shift in thinking by members of the City Council — in particular City Council President and District Attorney candidate Jason Williams — who in 2017 voted to move forward with the Phase III building and declined to advance the possibility of a retrofit option. Williams, at the time, called the Phase III facility a “moral obligation.”

The only member of the City Council to vote against moving forward with Phase III in 2017 was LaToya Cantrell,

The improvements in health insurance products in response to COVID-19

Abhishek Bondia

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has increased the consumer’s consciousness about health insurance like no other event in the past. At the onset of the pandemic, individuals wondered whether their health insurance plan covered the costs of treating COVID-19. The insurance regulator was prompt to clarify that all regular hospitalization insurance policies would cover COVID-19 related hospitalization as well.  Nowadays, I get a few calls every week from friends, who want to evaluate their health insurance policies comprehensively for covering themselves, spouses, children and parents.

Their worries are specific. They want to know if buying a personal insurance apart from employer sponsored coverage will help, if COVID-19 treatment at home is covered, and ways to get supplementary coverage. The insurance industry has responded swiftly to address such consumer concerns. Here are a few examples of insurers
