What will happen when the Health care reform law is fully implemented?

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

How will the changes to health care be paid for?

Will Health Insurance be mandatory ?

Will small businesses have to carry insurance on their employees?

This will answer your questions. Here is the general outline for the bill’s timline:

Within 90 days: Would provide immediate access to high-risk pools for people with no insurance because of pre-existing conditions.

Within six months: Would bar insurers from denying people coverage when they get sick.

* Would bar insurers from denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions.
* Would bar insurers from imposing lifetime caps on coverage
* Would require insurers to allow people to stay on their parents’ policies until they turn 26.

Within a year: Would provide a $250 rebate this year to Medicare prescription drug beneficiaries whose initial benefits run out.

2011: Would require individual and small group market plans to spend 80 percent of premium dollars on medical services. Large group plans would have to spend at least 85 percent.

2013: Would increase the Medicare payroll tax and expand it to dividend, interest and other unearned income for singles earning more than $200,000 and joint filers making more than $250,000.

2014: Would privide subsidies for families earning up to 400 percent of the poverty level, currently about $880000 a year, to buy health insurance.

* Would require most employers to provide coverage or face penalties.
* Would require most people to obtain coverage or face penalties.

2018: Would impose a 40 percent excise tax on high-end insurance benefits.

What is the best supplement/mix to take for working out?

What is the best supplement/mix to take for building muscle at the gym?
I asked about creatine in a previous question on here and it doesn’t sound all that appealing.

So many options out there and so many different opinions about them all. The more points of view I get on here, the better.

Will definitely be awarding a Best Answer after reviewing all the feedback.

Thanks!

Supplements are really not going to help. A balanced diet of the usual four food groups is what you need. Mostly grains and veggies, a little fish, fowl and lean meat – and not too much of any of it.

Dietary supplements bring millions of dollars into the pockets of the stinkers who manage to fool lots of people into thinking they can’t get along without supplements – but humankind has gotten along just fine without ‘em for thousands and thousands of years – we haven’t suddenly become so fragile and frail that we need ‘em now!

Can you major in Nutrition and become a Physical Therapist?

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Can I major in nutrition in college and then go to PT school? I want to have nutrition to fall back on if I don’t get accepted into PT school. Do I have to then major in both or is nutrition enough? Thanks!

Yes you can. You can major in any field as long as you have taken the prerequisites required for the PT program. Nutrition is an interesting choice as it would be linked to PT.

What is required to get into fitness as a career?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

Hey I was wondering what is required course wise to get into fitness as a career such as personal training. To get into this career path do you go into college or university? I’m in grade 11 now and if someone could let me know what kind of courses would be required in grade 12 to get into this field. For example is biology required? Any information would be appreciated i’m in Toronto Ontario if it means anything, i’m assuming it’s different in U.S., thanks.

Being a personal fitness trainer is NOT something you make a career out of. It only requires a certificate which you can get online. Generally, most personal trainers are casual employees at a gym or fitness center. They only work part time and are paid minimum wage. They usually only last a couple of months before they get laid off or terminated because no one wants to pay a fitness trainer to teach them something they can learn to do by themselves. Choose something else.

What is your answer to reducing health costs and improving health care in America?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

How do we go about this without drastically increasing out health insurance costs?
Of course we all need to practice healthier lifestyle habits, but fiscally how do we improve our nation? Should we adobt other nation’s practices? if so, whose?
How do we improve health care across america and lower the costs to the citizens who utilize that care?

It’s really a no brainer.

1. Only provide insurance that covers catastrophic problems, not the office visits and other things like check ups, etc. Would you buy car insurance that covers tune ups? Of course not. Auto insurance would cost a fortune to provide that kind of insurance.

2. Take the task of health care out of any government agency. Government is not about our health, only politics and power. Any government plan is going to be designed to get votes and put money into politicians hands by extracting the money from people with money. This ultimately always ends up costing the average guy more.

3. Allocate any money that is given to drug companies to be divided to provide money for alternative medicine solutions and create a competition to solve problems.

4. Stop allowing anchor babies to be U.S. citizens. Create heavy fines and penalties to any company that hires ANY illegal alien.

5. If we are going to make doctors responsible for their actions, we need to give them the authority to request necessary tests, but not require them to do unnecessary tests just to satisfy a lawyer’s accusations that ALL TESTS WERE NOT done, so the doctor is liable for negligence.

6. Make Pharmaceutical companies liable for any damage done by vaccinations they produce, instead of the public that is now paying the billions for this. If they can’t make them safe, they pay, not us.

7. Create real change in Washington and fire the whole lot of those lunatics that think we, the public are stupid and believe their spending lunacy is good for the country. People like Harry Reid, Hilary Clinton, Obama, Nancy Pilosi, the whole lot of those lunatics.

good luck

What is the best protein supplement for me?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

I was wondering what the best Protein Supplement for me is im 14 years old and i weight lift everyday after school for an hour…I do follow a routine and never do the same thing for long period of time…I want to know what is the best supplement i can take while working out…I don’t want anything i have to take during school hours..

The best protein supplement you can take is an all around protein powder, something you could but at gnc or the internet. This includes several types of protein in it, along with some creatine and glutamine to boost and speed your recovery. The easiest protein to get is Whey Protein made by Body Fortress. This can be bought at many grocery stores, including Wall Mart and Kroger. This also contains glutamine and creatine. If you can get some one 18 or older, you can buy creatine by Body Fortress, also found at Kroger and Wall Mart. This will help you bulk up fast. The best time to take protein is at night before bed and in the morning after you wake up. The best time to take creatine is before a workout, and if money is not a problem, after. Make sure you drink a TON of water during the day, to flush out the excess protein and creatine.

Is a job as a Nutrition Assistant in a hospital related to being a nutrition major?

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

What does a nutrition assistant actually do? I’m looking to get some dietary experience in the clinical field, but the job description was kinda vague. Is the job more food service related, rather than nutrition related?

That is a whole lotta experience in food . Front of the house is best for me but occasionally Dietary menues etc, requires knowledge and nutrition expertise .{ diversify } Culinary background.etc………….

How much does it cost to bring a guest to Planet Fitness?

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

How much does it cost to bring a guest with you to planet fitness, if you have the $10/month membership? I know it’s unlimited if you have the black card membership, but that one doesn’t include anything I would use.

Most of the Planet Fitness franchises are individually owned and operated, so you will have to check at the location where you want to bring a guest. i checked with one location in Montgomery, Alabama, and they wanted $15 to bring along a guest. Another location in Staten Island, New York City, wanted $20.

Use the website below to find the phone number and call the location you want to bring your guest to. Since New York City has the highest costs in the country, I would assume that twenty dollars is the most you’ll have to pay.

I hope you and your guest enjoy your workout.
