[11/08/17]   CONGRATULATIONS Americans!! The 2018 ACA (Affordable Care Act) enrollment period is Nov 1-Dec 15.
You're not seeing advertising about the enrollment window online or on TV because the Affordable Care Act’s advertising budget was cut by 90 percent by you know who...
Fortunately, your friends are posting this and using the word "congratulations" so it gets posted more frequently in Newsfeed by FB algorithms.
Please consider copying and pasting (don't share) on your own timeline...and send to Public.

At the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences. Enjoying being a clinic supervisor.

[10/03/17]   Enrollment for the 2018 Affordable Care Act (ACA / Obamacare) starts November 1 and ends December 15. Trump reduced the advertising funds to announce when people can enroll by 90%. He also cut the open enrollment time period from 3 months to 6 weeks. If enough people don't enroll, the program doesn't work... this is one of the ways that this could be destroyed. I believe we need to do the marketing ourselves.
If you or anyone you know relies on the ACA please make sure people know about Open Enrollment. If you miss open enrollment there is also opportunity for special enrollment (e.g. if you lost your employer based insurance).
Please copy and paste to circulate. #SpreadTheWord

6,000-Year-Old Knee Joints Suggest Osteoarthritis Isn't Just Wear And Tear

Different thought on Arthritis. Even after a Harvard team took into account differences in age and weight among ancient specimens and knees today, they found that modern humans tend to have more osteoarthritis.

[01/25/17]   I found this helpful, sharing in case others do as well.
For those celebrating the forthcoming repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare): Just a reminder that even if you are safely ensconced behind employer-provided insurance, the protections set forth in the ACA apply to you, too--and if those protections are repealed along with the rest (or any part) of the program, you will also be affected.
That means you may be trapped in a job, because your pre-existing condition may mean you will not qualify for new insurance offered by another employer, and the cost of private insurance would be prohibitive. If your employer shuts down, lays you off, or even changes insurers, well, you are out of luck. (The Senate GOP voted this week that they would not require an eventual ACA replacement to protect against discrimination for pre-existing conditions, which was the standard before the ACA.)
It means that you (a young adult under the age of 26) or your adult children (over 18) may find yourselves without the protection of insurance, as the Senate GOP voted last night that an eventual ACA replacement will not be required to allow young people to remain on their parents' insurance up to the age of 26.
It means that if you have a high-risk pregnancy, or life-threatening illness such as cancer, you may not be able to afford all the care you need, because you may hit lifetime or annual caps. If you have an infant born with any kind of severe medical condition, or premature, they may hit their lifetime insurance cap before they are old enough to walk. The Senate GOP voted last night that an eventual ACA replacement program would not be required to prohibit lifetime insurance caps.
It means that if you are a struggling parent who is un- or underinsured, you will no longer be able to count on at least your kids getting the routine medical and dental care they need under the Children's Health Insurance Plan (CHIP). The Senate GOP voted that CHIP is not required to be protected by an eventual ACA replacement.
These provisions of the ACA affect everyone in this country, not just those without insurance through their employers.
If you are not okay with these changes, call your representatives and let them know what's important to you. Nothing has been set in stone yet, but our legislators have shown us a map of what they plan to do if constituents don't make their voices heard loud and clear.
... If you want to share this, rather than clicking "share" (which will only make it visible to people we are both Facebook friends with), you are better off copying and pasting the text. (Reposted, thanks to the author)
