Getting Healthy(er)

Rick Schelhas So, as of this writing, we are a little over one month into the New Year’s resolution cycle. If you believe the “studies” the results aren’t good. According to a 2015 study from the Nielsen Analytics Firm, only 64% of all resolutions make it past the first month. And only 46% make it longer than 6 months with a mere 14% actually achieving their goal. But if you pick and choose who to listen to, that just might be the good news. In 2017 US News reported 80% of all those making a New Year’s [...]

New Years (Insurance) Resolutions

By | 2019-01-10T20:58:19+00:00 January 10th, 2019|Adam Miller|Comments Off on New Years (Insurance) Resolutions

Each New Year brings a similar feel with it, resolutions, goals and changes.  For the medical world it means more of the same; insurance changes, deductibles and unpaid claims.  That’s not to say it’s a bad thing, it simply is the way it is.  Each year in January Medicare recipients, whether it be for medical, hospital or drug coverage, have their deductibles reset. This is also when many of the insurance company’s policies are renewed. This may be why something that was no charge December 31st now has a co pay, requires prior authorization or is simply not [...]

Kids’ Food Basket Feeding the Hungry One Sack Lunch at a Time

By | 2018-11-09T14:32:38+00:00 November 6th, 2018|Rick Schelhas|Comments Off on Kids’ Food Basket Feeding the Hungry One Sack Lunch at a Time

Rick Schelhas Are you familiar with the term “First World Problems”? You know, when your car seat heaters don’t turn on with your remote car starter and it kind of ruins your day. Or when your favorite movie streams in a format that will only fill 78 inches of your 85 inch TV. (Not sure I can go on living when that happens.) Those are the kind of “problems” some of us actually spend quality time on trying to resolve. But imagine this. You’re sitting in front of your 85” TV aggravated by the dead space on [...]

Are Diabetic Shoes the Answer You’ve Been Searching For?

By | 2018-09-18T12:36:18+00:00 September 18th, 2018|Julee Brown|Comments Off on Are Diabetic Shoes the Answer You’ve Been Searching For?

Have you heard of diabetic shoes? I know you have heard about orthotics, but those are for old people, not me, right?  Well, thanks to our diverse English language where five words mean the same thing, diabetic shoes are orthotics (all diabetic shoes are orthotics but not all orthotics are diabetic shoes). Our society developed this terminology as an alternative to orthotics because people suffering from medical complications should not need to be made to feel inferior by using the term orthotics but now, you may be thinking, “I don’t have diabetes so why do I care about orthotics/diabetic [...]

It’s Flu Season Already

By | 2018-08-10T12:49:36+00:00 August 10th, 2018|Adam Miller|Comments Off on It’s Flu Season Already

Flu Season Already? Adam Miller PharmD. As we wind through August, with summer still on our minds, it’s hard to fathom the rains and winds of fall, winter coats, sniffles, colds and the flu are right around the corner.  It is however nearing the time of year when your doctor will be asking, “Have you received your flu shot yet?” and the radio and TV will be advertising “Flu shots now available”.  So, who should get flu shot? When should you get a flu shot? And how do they know if the vaccine is even going to [...]
