    RV owners look to FMCA for the peace of mind membership provides, and the fun!

    CINCINNATI (PRWEB) October 10, 2018

    Signs of fall and the resulting arrival of cooler weather are all around us. It’s a great time to be an RVer! Many RV owners plan fall leaf-peeping trips. Others hop in their RVs and head to one of the many fall festivals, or book a site at a nearby campground to enjoy autumn activities. Soon, RVing snowbirds will set a course for their annual migration to warmer climates. Members of FMCA, a Cincinnati, Ohio-based organization for RV owners, are among those making such travel plans.

    FMCA members look to the association, the world’s largest member-owned RV organization, to provide them with benefits and services that enhance their travels. A vote of the membership in late 2017 made those valuable offerings available to a wider audience of RV owners. FMCA now welcomes owners of all self-contained RVs, branching out from its previous motorized-RV focus. And member benefits continue to be added.

    For many RVers, coverage via the FMCAssist Medical Emergency and Travel Assistance Plan, valued at $105 per family and included in the annual dues, provides reason enough to become a member of FMCA. But that’s actually just the beginning.

    Need new tires before your next outing? FMCA offers special member rates via its tire-purchasing program, with options from Michelin; Continental; and — coming soon — Hankook. No RVer should leave home without a roadside assistance plan, and FMCA has RVers covered with a special member-only rate of $69 per year for FMCA Roadside Rescue®.

    RV insurance is paramount to peace of mind also, and FMCA offers members group rates and a choice of plans and providers. Keeping up with your mail while snowbirding or full-time RVing is made easy by Your Best Address, FMCA’s preferred mail forwarding provider. Staying connected while traveling is facilitated by group rates on mobile internet plans from Verizon and Sprint.

    RVers under 65 who are looking to hit the road but concerned about how to handle health insurance will want to explore the offerings of the new FMCA Health Plan.

    The cost to join FMCA is just $60 for the first year and $50 per year thereafter. The first-year fee includes a set of membership plates to display on one’s RV. Multiyear dues discounts are available.

    FMCA is unique among the major RV clubs, because it is a not-for-profit organization, and the only one owned and governed by its membership.

    To join or to learn more, visit FMCA.com or call (800) 543-3622 or (513) 474-3622.

    FMCA is an international organization for families who own and enjoy the use of self-contained recreation vehicles (RVs). The association maintains its national headquarters in Cincinnati, Ohio, and currently has more than 75,000 active member families. FMCA offers its members a number of benefits, including a subscription to its monthly magazine, Family RVing; a medical emergency and travel assistance program valued at $105 per family; a tire purchasing program; group rates on a roadside assistance program, RV and auto insurance, and health insurance; discounted rates for RV tours and caravans; and discounts on mobile internet access plans from Verizon and Sprint. Perhaps the most important benefit of FMCA membership is the camaraderie and friendships that develop among people enjoying the common interest of RV travel. The organization can be reached at (513) 474-3622 or (800) 543-3622 and on the web at FMCA.com. Reported by PRWeb 1 day ago.

    Embrace Pet Insurance has partnered with the Human Animal Bond Research Institute to support research on the human health benefits of companion animals.

    CLEVELAND (PRWEB) October 10, 2018

    The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) announced today that Embrace Pet Insurance, one of the highest-rated U.S. pet insurance companies, has become an official supporter of HABRI and its research on the human health benefits of companion animals.

    “When pet owners become part of the Embrace family, we strive to strengthen the human-animal bond, especially when pet parents need it most,” said Ambrish Jaiswal, CEO of Embrace Pet Insurance. “By supporting HABRI, Embrace Pet Insurance is proudly helping to advance human-animal bond research that demonstrates the positive role that healthy pets play in our lives.”

    “We know from research that pets are considered part of the family, and that pet owners want what’s best for their four-legged family members,” said Steven Feldman, Executive Director of HABRI. “Embrace helps to provide and sustain healthy pets, so that, as family, they are protected against unexpected accidents and illnesses.”

    Scientific evidence increasingly shows that pets improve heart health; alleviate depression; increase well-being; support child health and development; and contribute to healthy aging. In addition, companion animals can assist in the treatment of a broad range of conditions from post-traumatic stress to Alzheimer’s disease to autism spectrum disorder.

    The benefits of the human-animal bond impact more than just human health. Findings from a recent HABRI survey of 2,000 pet owners demonstrate that knowledge of the scientific research on the human-animal bond motivates pet owners to take better care of their pets. From providing pets with higher quality nutrition to purchasing pet health insurance, spreading awareness of the health benefits of pet ownership improves pet health and welfare.

    “Embrace believes in giving back to the pet care community, and supporting HABRI research is perfectly aligned with our company values. We look forward to playing a supportive role for HABRI and helping discover more ways in which pets improve our well-being,” added Jaiswal.

    Embrace Pet Insurance is a top-rated pet health insurance provider for dogs and cats in the United States. Embrace offers one simple yet comprehensive accident and illness insurance plan that is underwritten by American Modern Insurance Group, Inc. In addition to insurance, Embrace offers Wellness Rewards, an optional preventative care product that is unique to the industry. Wellness Rewards reimburses for routine veterinary visits, grooming, vaccinations, training, and much more with no itemized limitations. Embrace is a proud member of the North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) and continues to innovate and improve the pet insurance experience for pet parents across the country.

    The Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) is a not-for-profit organization that maintains the world’s largest online library of human-animal bond research and information; funds innovative research projects to scientifically document the health benefits of companion animals; and informs the public about human-animal bond research and the beneficial role of companion animals in society.

    CVS and Aetna are gaining ground after their $69 billion merger gets the green light (CVS, AET)· CVS and Aetna received regulatory approval for their $69 billion merger — with some conditions. 
    · Stocks were down sharply on Wednesday, but shares of both companies were higher.
    · The merger remains on track to close in the early part of the fourth quarter, according to CVS.
    · Watch CVS and Aetna trade in real time here.

    Stocks were down sharply on Wednesday, but CVS and Aetna provided a rare bright spot. Both stocks were higher after the companies received regulatory approval for their $69 billion merger. CVS was up 0.9% and Aetna was higher by 1.3%.

    CVS announced Wednesday that it has entered into an agreement with the US Department of Justice that allows it to proceed with its proposed acquisition of Aetna, the nation’s third-largest health insurance company, on the condition that Aetna sells off its Medicare Part D prescription-drug business.

    The merger remains on track to close in the early part of the fourth quarter, according to CVS. Aetna will operate as a standalone business within the CVS Health enterprise and will be led by members of its current management team after the close of the transition.

    "DOJ clearance is an important step toward bringing together the strengths and capabilities of our two companies to improve the consumer health care experience," CVS CEO Larry Merloin said in the press release.

    "We are pleased to have reached an agreement with the DOJ that maintains the strategic benefits and value creation potential of our combination with Aetna. We are now working to complete the remaining state reviews."

    CVS was up 9% this year and Aetna was higher by 14%.

    A new study published in an official journal of the AAAAI suggests young adults with asthma who remain on parental health plans until age 26 experience increased health insurance coverage and decreased financial obstacles to health care.

    MILWAUKEE (PRWEB) October 10, 2018

    A new study published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, an official journal of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI), reports increased health care coverage and reduced cost barriers to health care for asthma sufferers utilizing the Dependent Coverage Extension (DCE).

    “While research has begun to filter in concerning the impact of DCE on health care usage among young adults, until now data specific to asthma patients has been unavailable,” said first author Joy Hsu, MD, MS. “We’ve only just started to understand the effects the DCE has had on people with asthma. Further research could help us better understand the influence the Affordable Care Act has had on people with asthma and their treatment options.”

    The study, performed by Hsu and colleagues at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Environmental Health, focused on adults with current asthma between the ages of 19 and 32; adults aged 19 to 25 were affected by the DCE while those aged 26 to 32 acted as the comparison group. The Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) was utilized to complete the study. Data from 2006 to 2009 (before DCE implementation) and data from 2011 to 2016 (after DCE implementation) were analyzed.

    The responses to two BRFSS questions were used for the purpose of this study: “Do you have any kind of health care coverage, including health insurance, prepaid plans such as HMOs, or government plans such as Medicare?” and “Was there a time in the past 12 months when you needed to see a doctor but could not because of cost?” Analysis of the latter question included two subanalyses; one analysis focused on insured adults with current asthma while the other focused on uninsured adults with current asthma. The study results were compiled based on 48,194 survey responses.

    In 2006 to 2009 adults with current asthma aged 19 to 25 years were less likely to report health insurance coverage than those aged 26 to32. After DCE was implemented, the data from 2011 to 2016 shows that adults with current asthma aged 19 to 25 years were more likely to report health coverage than adults aged 26 to 32 years.

    Additionally, the study divulges that from 2011 to 2016, the population group covered by the DCE noted fewer cost barriers to medical care than the comparison group. This is in stark contrast to data recorded from 2006 to 2009 when there were no significant differences reported across age groups regarding cost of care. This pattern was consistent across the subanalysis restricted to insured adults, though differences were less prominent among uninsured adults with current asthma.

    This study is a first step in understanding the potential effects of the Affordable Care Act on young adults with asthma. Its methods and results could be used to inform future studies on how this national policy change has affected people with asthma.

    Additional information about asthma treatments and management can be found at the AAAAI’s website, aaaai.org.

    The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) represents allergists, asthma specialists, clinical immunologists, allied health professionals and others with a special interest in the research and treatment of allergic and immunologic diseases. Established in 1943, the AAAAI has nearly 7,000 members in the United States, Canada and 72 other countries.

    Democrats just made a play to make their signature healthcare issue stand out on the campaign trail· Senate Democrats forced a vote to roll back the Trump administration's new rule expanding the use of short-term, limited-duration health insurance plans on Wednesday.
    · Short-term, limited-duration plans are cheap alternatives to Obamacare marketplace plans.
    · But they lack key protections for Americans with preexisting conditions.
    · Democrats say the expanded use of short-term plans would harm people with preexisting conditions, while the GOP argue expanding the plans gave consumers more choice.
    · The vote ultimately failed, but bringing the preexisting condition issue to the forefront could still be a win for Democrats.

    Senate Democrats failed to push through a key healthcare vote on Wednesday, but in defeat looked toward a boost in their midterm election prospects.

    Sen. Tammy Baldwin used a procedure called a discharge petition to force a vote that would have repealed President Donald Trump's plan to expand short-term, limited-duration health insurance plans — which Democrats called "junk" plans.

    The petition ultimately failed in the Senate by a vote of 50-50, with GOP Sen. Susan Collins crossing party lines to vote with Democrats.

    But Democrats may still have gotten a big win from the vote.

    In the run up to the midterm elections, Democrats are hammering the GOP on healthcare — particularly protections for people with preexisting conditions. And the stark divide between the two parties in the petition vote could give add another wrinkle to the fight.

    *Preexisting condition protections vs. consumer choice*

    The discharge petition was designed to roll back a regulatory change from Trump's Department of Health and Human Services. The rule change allowed the expanded use of short-term, limited-duration health insurance plans.

    These plans are cheaper but also less generous in what they cover. Under the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, the use of short-term plans was limited to three months and were generally used by people as a bridge in case of a job loss.

    The new Trump rule would allow Americans to stay on the short-term plans for up to 12 months and allow renewals for up to three years.

    Health policy experts say the problem with these plans is that they do not have to abide by the ACA's basic coverage rules:

    · This means that while insurers can't deny people short-term plans based on a preexisting condition, they can charge more for people who are sick and possibly even price those people out of the market.
    · The short-term plans do not need to abide by the ACA's essential health benefits rules, which force all insurance plans to offer baseline coverage like prescription drug payments and maternity care.
    · Experts warn that the short-term plans could pull healthier, younger people out of the ACA market. That would leave a more expensive pool of people in the Obamacare marketplace, potentially pushing up prices for everyone.

    Democrats argued the expansion of these plans will undermine preexisting condition protections and harm sicker Americans.

    Sen. Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat facing a tough reelection race in West Virginia, supported the petition.

    "I am fighting to ensure that every West Virginian with preexisting conditions, and those who may someday have a pre-existing condition, cannot be denied healthcare coverage or be charged more for their coverage," Manchin said in a statement after the vote.

    While Democrats hammered the issue as a vote on preexisting conditions protections, Republicans cast the discharge petition in a very different light.

    To Republicans, the short-term healthcare plans were about consumer choice. 

    "We don’t need more command and control, more paternalism out of Washington that thinks it knows what’s best for you," said Sen. John Cornyn, the second-highest ranking Republican. "We need more choices for consumers so they can buy healthcare at a price they can afford and that suits their needs."

    Others like Sen. Ron Johnson argued that the short-term plans do not undermine Obamacare's preexisting condition protections.

    "The rule expands affordable options and leaves Obamacare plans’ pre-existing conditions provisions untouched," Johnson said.

    While it is true that the plans don't eliminate the ACA's preexisting conditions provisions, it would undermine them for people on the plans. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 1.6 million in the first four years under the rule would be on those types of plans without protections.

    Collins, the lone GOP vote for the petition, framed preexisting conditions as the decisive factor in her vote.

    "Short-Term Limited Duration plans do not provide protections for enrollees who suffer from preexisting conditions," Collins said. "As I have often emphasized, it is essential that individuals who suffer from preexisting conditions are covered."

    *A political winner?*

    Polling shows that protections of people with preexisting conditions are important to voters.

    According to a poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health policy think tank:

    · 75% of people surveyed said protections to ensure people are not denied coverage due to a preexisting condition are "very important."
    · 72% said ensuring people are not charged more because of preexisting conditions is very important.
    · 56% of Republicans polled by Kaiser said protecting sick people from being charged more from insurance was important.
    · Another poll, from Morning Consult and Politico, found that 81% of voters said that it should be illegal for insurers to deny people coverage due to a preexisting condition.
    · 71% said it should be illegal for insurers to charge more.

    And more people said they trusted the Democratic Party to ensure those protections: 42% of people surveyed by Morning Consult/Politico said that they trust Democrats to protect people with preexisting conditions, while only 20% preferred Republicans.

    It's obvious Democrats know their advantage. Roughly half of all ad spending by Democratic midterm candidates or groups focuses on healthcare, far and way the largest focus for the party.

    ezGreen Adds Critical Taxation Feature to its Proprietary Compliance Platform

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FinCanna Capital Corp. (“FinCanna”) (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) a royalty company for the U.S. licensed medical cannabis industry, announces that its investee company ezGreen Compliance (“ezGreen”) which provides a state-of-the-art enterprise compliance and point-of-sale (POS) software solution for licensed medical cannabis dispensaries and cultivators, has expanded its proprietary Business Intelligence Dashboard (BID) with the addition of a new comprehensive taxation feature to automate essential revenue reporting functionality.Testing with a cannabis management company carrying a portfolio of over 30 dispensaries in the state of California, the company believes it is the only comprehensive tax reporting solution in the market. ezGreen’s new proprietary taxation functionality resolves the problem of labour intensive, error prone manual inputting of key financial data as it is designed to ensure that critical financial information is instantly captured and seamlessly organized for complex municipal and state tax reporting.  ezGreen’s automation of the state taxation formulas are customizable to track both municipal and state requirements around sales and excise taxes.

    ezGreen intends to roll out this new taxation feature as a fully integrated component of its Business Intelligence Dashboard to the company’s affiliate network which includes a pipeline of over 200 dispensary client locations.

    Additionally, ezGreen Compliance is working with several State Cannabis Control Boards on developing opioid diversion strategies by setting secure reporting mechanisms, integrating with ezGreen’s BID platform to track essential inventory and sales data.

    “Compliance reporting is becoming a “must have” for every business in the cannabis industry,” said Andriyko Herchak, President and CEO of FinCanna Capital. “We believe ezGreen is clearly the industry leader in the compliance software space as evidenced by their superior Business Intelligence Dashboard which now incorporates a mission critical taxation reporting solution. Compliance reporting is an enormously lucrative space and we are confident ezGreen will deliver outstanding results for our shareholders.”

    Specifically developed to address the needs of the cannabis Industry, ezGreen Compliance is a HIPAA certified POS solution developed and supported by Automated HealthCare Solutions (AHCS).

    In less than a month, individuals and families will be able to enroll in health insurance for a January 1, 2019, effective date.

    LOUISVILLE, Colo (PRWEB) October 11, 2018

    Eric Smith, president of CO Health Brokers, offers tips and insight for understanding how to take advantage of this critical month for health insurance.

    Once per year the general public has a short window of open enrollment to shop for and select critical health insurance that will cover an individual and their family for the upcoming calendar year. Health insurance expert Eric Smith and his team at CO Health Brokers have been helping the community stay one step ahead of this often overwhelming and confusing process by going the extra mile and finding the right health insurance that fits for each client.

    Smith, who is certified on Connect for health to assist clients, answers the following essential questions CO Health Brokers receives to help the Louisville and surrounding Boulder County community realize the importance of this open enrollment timeframe and why using a brokerage can be a gamechanger.

    When is the window of time for open enrollment?
    Beginning November 1 and ending on December 15, individuals and families can shop for and select a health insurance plan that fit their overall needs and budget. “Once purchased, the health insurance plan will go into effect January 1, 2019,” noted Smith.

    Why use a health insurance agent or broker?
    Being represented by an expert takes the guesswork out of shopping for and choosing the right health insurance plan. Agents and brokers have licensed access to federal programs to assist lower-income clients and other alternative plans for those that are healthy. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so it’s always wise to explore all options,” added Smith.

    What if I can’t afford health insurance?
    Brokers and agents can assess each client’s situation and walk them through the application process for medicaid or receiving program subsidies. A subsidy is financial assistance to help pay for a monthly health insurance premium, and does not need to be paid back unless there is an increase in income that calendar year.

    How can I prepare for open enrollment and working with a broker?
    Refer to the prior year tax return and estimate what the total taxable income might look like for 2018. “This will help a broker quickly estimate which products may fit best for your current financial situation,” advised Smith.

    Will the upcoming administration changes affect health insurance?
    Health insurance plans and current federal programs available to the public have not changed. “On the contrary, there is now more access to health insurance plans than before and the personal mandate penalty will be going away starting in 2019,” concluded Smith.

    Dublin, Oct. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Risk-based Authentication Market by Component, Technology Type (MFA, Behavioral Biometrics, Web Access Management), Application Area (Fraud Prevention, IoT Security), Deployment Mode, Industry Vertical, and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to *ResearchAndMarkets.com's* offering.The global risk-based authentication market size is expected to grow from USD 2.19 billion in 2018 to USD 5.41 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 19.8% during the forecast period.Major growth factors for the market include enterprises' increasing focus on protecting infrastructure from rising instances of cyber-attacks and data breaches and growing demand for mobility solutions and BYOD trend. However, the lack of skilled security professionals and preplanning in enterprises is a significant challenge for the market growth.

    The solution segment in the risk-based authentication market is expected to hold a larger market size during the forecast period. The risk-based authentication solutions help enterprises improve identity security and protect both corporate and individual data from potentially harmful identity theft.

    The MFA technology type is major contributor to the growth of risk-based authentication solution market. The MFA requires more than one method of authentication from independent categories of user credentials to verify the user's identity for a login or other transaction. It includes Personal Identification Number (PIN), one-time password (OTP), biometric identity, security tokens, and others. The MFA helps organizations prevent unauthorized access to sensitive business information and maintain security of employee and customer data.

    APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period in the global risk-based authentication market by region, owing to the high-security spending by organizations in major APAC countries, such as China, Australia, India, Singapore, and Japan, for protecting sensitive information from unauthorized access. Furthermore, North America is estimated to hold the largest market size in 2018, as the region is an early adopter of security technologies.*Key Topics Covered:**1 Introduction*

    You Are What You Eat: The Nexus of Food & Health to take place October 11, 2018 at Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis, MN

    MINNEAPOLIS (PRWEB) October 11, 2018

    Furthering its efforts to convene leading experts and ideas on the forefront of food and agriculture innovation, Larta Institute’s Global Ag Innovation Network (GAIN) will join forces with AURI (Agriculture Utilization Research Institute), MyFormulary USA, and Mercy Hospitality to host an aptly-named forum, You Are What You Eat: The Nexus of Food & Health, highlighting how food and ingredients play a role in health and their importance to disease prevention and treatment, on October 11, 2018 at-Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis.

    While it is well-understood that diet and food play a central role in health, the recent explosion of public interest in wellness products has underscored the importance of “whole body” approaches to health, including exciting developments in the study of the microbiome, and the conflict between fact-based choices and popular opinion. Consumer-centric products are gaining market popularity, disrupting traditional relationships between food companies and the marketplace, while underscoring the need for health education and regulation to maintain public health standards.

    In response to the increasing dialog over food and health, this forum will feature experts in data modeling, disease management and actuarial insurance, along with entrepreneurs who are charting the arc of innovation in the broader field of food and health. The agenda features panels, keynotes, and presentations from well-respected experts in the field, including Dr. Elizabeth Kordas, Founder and CEO of Step One Foods, Greg Thompson, Chief Food Law Counsel of General Mills and and Mark Kaster, Partner at Dorsey and Whitney LLP.

    Other sessions include Disease Management Through Food: How the Prevention and Treatment Landscape is Being Reshaped and Health Insurance & Functional Food: A Vision for The Future.

    You Are What You Eat: The Nexus of Food & Health will showcase an impressive selection of speakers including Ed Rogers, Founder & CEO of Bonumose, Tammy Lee, President and CEO of Recombinetics, Dr. Jaeyun Sung, Asst. Professor of Surgery at Mayo Clinic Ventures Microbiome Project, and representatives of AURI, Larta Institute, My Formulary USA, and Mercy Hospitality.

    Additionally, local executive chefs will demonstrate the preparation of nutritious and delicious foods for a tasting lunch followed by a keynote on how to bring Functional Foods into our daily lives. Following the event, a cocktail reception will be held for all attendees and speakers.

    “We are excited to explore the intersection of food, agriculture, medicine, and health in Minnesota, which, by any standard is one of the leading centers of food production and agribusiness in the world,” says Rohit Shukla, CEO of Larta Institute, who will also be speaking at the event. “Together with AURI, which is at the forefront of Minnesota’s efforts for agriculturally-based innovation, we will envision the issues and opportunities that will mark the future of ag for the region, and for the world.”

    “This is sure to be a one-of-a-kind event focusing on innovative opportunities and approaches to the food and health intersection. By partnering with Larta Institute and MyFormulary, we can further explore how consumers are taking a greater interest in their food choices,” says Shannon Schlecht, AURI Executive Director. “This event will provide a great opportunity to highlight a breadth of industry leading perspectives to inform participants of new health and food options.”

    This event also aims to drive conversations around how foods can likely lead to better management of the health care trifecta of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Additionally, discussions will look at how food ingredients can improve human health to help advance opportunities in the health-food nexus revolution.

    Registration for the full day event is still open, please find more information here: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07efl4wzcid2537972&llr=btf8y8cab
