Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 30, 2013
With a recent Gallup poll showing 58% of Americans support ending marijuana prohibition, Publius, pen name for The Cannabis Papers: A citizens guide to cannabinoids (2011), notes the growing importance of any disconnect between our cannabinoid systems, healthcare, and what we weigh.
When we were writing The Cannabis Papers, recalled Bryan W. Brickner (part of Publius), we thought of the book as 36 spokes (chapters) with the Introduction and Potscript forming the hub of the wheel: the human cannabinoid system works in a similar manner.
Body systems have to work together, continued Brickner. Imagine the digestive, endocrine and circulatory systems all in need at once; since the cannabinoid system modulates all other systems in the body (it hears them, so to speak), it works as the hub a central part that energies radiate from to balance our diet and health.
According to research, the cannabinoid system facilitates energy intake (diet) and enhances energy storage and expenditure by influencing lipid and glucose metabolism.
With the 2011 publication of The Cannabis Papers, noted Brickner, we knew what the science was saying that our ignorance was hurting us and that it impacted things like obesity. Now, two years later, in the midst of the Affordable Healthcare implementation, I think wed all be healthier, wealthier and wiser if we took a look inside ourselves at our hub and start seeing the cannabinoids that are in all of us.
Brickner has a 1997 political science doctorate from Purdue University and is the author of several political theory books, to include The Promise Keepers (1999), Article the first of the Bill of Rights (2006), and The Book of the Is (2013).
The Cannabis Papers is available at online retailers and for free by download.

Question by Kiran C: Since Vermont is first to post the premiums under Obamacare, are these prices that we expected?
“Vermont’s insurance exchange will be served by two companies, MVP Health, based in Schenectady, New York, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont. ”
“Without the subsidies, premiums would start at $ 202 a month for a single person under 30 buying a stripped-down ‘catastrophic’ plan sold by MVP Health, according to the statement released yesterday by Vermont. ‘Platinum’ coverage for an entire family, the most expensive available, would cost $ 1,728 a month from MVP or $ 1,698 from Blue Cross Blue Shield. ”
These are the after prices for the Affordable Care Act. What are the before prices?
Answer by Flower
Insurance premiums are regional or local, oversight is by each state. We dont know what the insurance exchanges in other states will offer yet. You should give all the rates, not just a couple of them. And you should give the tax credit subsidy people will get next year.

Today, Zane Benefits, Inc. published new information on the medical insurance premium tax credit. Zane Benefits, which provides comprehensive and flexible alternatives to traditional employer sponsored health benefits, is the leader in defined contribution and health reimbursement arrangements.
According to Zane Benefits website, starting in 2014, individuals and families can take a new medical premium tax credit to help them afford health insurance coverage purchased through a state-based Health Insurance Marketplace. On May 18, 2012, the Treasury Department and the IRS issued final regulations which provide guidance for individuals who enroll in qualified health plans through Exchanges and claim the premium tax credit, and for Exchanges that make qualified health plans available to individuals and employers.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Household income must be between 100% and 400% of the federal poverty level (FPL).
Covered individuals must be enrolled in a qualified health plan through a Health Insurance Marketplace.
Covered individuals must be legally present in the United States and not incarcerated.
Covered individuals must not be eligible for other qualifying coverage, such as Medicare, Medicaid, or affordable employer-sponsored insurance.
How much is the tax credit?
According to Zane Benefits website, the credit amount is generally equal to the difference between the premium for the benchmark plan and the taxpayers expected contribution.
The expected contribution is a specified percentage of the taxpayers household income. The percentage increases as income increases, from 2% of income for families at 100% of the FPL to 9.5% of income for families at 400% of FPL. The benchmark plan is the second-lowest-cost plan that would cover the family at the silver level of coverage.
Are there any special rules?
According to Zane Benefits website, yes. The credit is advanceable (i.e. advance payments are made directly to the insurance company on the familys behalf). The advance payments are then reconciled against the amount of the familys actual premium tax credit, as calculated on the familys federal income tax return.

Dallas Healthcare Debt Collection Agency Debt M.D. was recently highlighted in a D Magazine article for its unique and innovative approach to healthcare debt collections.
The article describes the technology-driven vision Dr. Hubert Fu has for his healthcare collections agency, along with the patient-centered practices he believes will result in better patient-provider relationships and increased ROI for Debt M.D.’s clients.
“We are very excited that one of Dallas’s biggest publications is helping to tell our story,” said Fu, a Dallas anesthesiologist. “The reception and buzz surrounding Debt M.D. in the Dallas/Fort Worth area has been quite noticeable, and we’re extremely pleased with the positive response from the healthcare community.”
The D Magazine article also highlights the fact that Debt M.D. is believed to be the only healthcare collection agency in the U.S. owned and operated by a practicing physician.
“We believe Dr. Fu’s experience as a practicing anesthesiologist and many years in the healthcare industry gives us a tremendous advantage in making healthcare collections,” said Debt M.D. COO Aryn Manning. “He (Dr. Fu) understands the doctor-patient relationship and has seen firsthand the reasons behind people failing to pay their medical bills or falling behind on payments.”
Debt M.D.’s mission and guiding principle was also a major focus of the article.
“Treating people humanely and with respect, we believe, is the only way to successfully get patients to pay their bills,” Dr. Fu said. “People do not plan on going into debt for medical reasons, and when you work with the patient to understand their situation, a reasonable payment solution can usually be found.”
