Today http://www.Finacast.com announced the release of an online financial planning solution to help financially un-savvy individuals understand their current and future financial health and make financial decisions that lead to more prosperous lives.
Financial planning is a complex and time consuming activity. Without easy access to financial advisors or planning tools, individuals often times end up making financial decisions that are not in their best interests. There are plethora of online tools and websites that promise to help individuals manage their money. These online budgeting and expense tracking tools fall short when it comes to helping individuals make a financial plan.
Finacast.com simplifies financial planning by letting individuals simulate their financial future with very little effort. It uses complex financial algorithms to assess individuals ability to take care of their needs, wants, debts and emergencies today and in future. It rates their overall financial health on a scale of zero to 10 and provides a forecast for debts, total savings and goals based on the current budget and provides specific advice that will help improve their financial future.
The Finacast financial planning platform lets users start planning with very little information and is capable of accommodating all planning variables such as tax implications of certain investments, debts and purchases, life priorities, inflation, future expenses and income and investment growth projections in its comprehensive simulations. Users can view their financial future under different scenarios by adding and/or changing their future income, goals and expenses and convert that into a plan that they can follow. Finacast provides users an option to link their bank accounts for easy reporting and tracking.
Finacast.com is a bay area start-up. Its mission is to use innovative technological solutions to help individuals make financial decisions that lead to more prosperous lives. Prior to Finacast.com, personal financial management applications only focused on bank accounts. While this makes for good bookkeeping and expense tracking, it reveals very little about financial health. That’s why Finacast shifted the focus to cash-flow and personal profit and loss, leading to customized financial advice for life events like planning a wedding, having a baby, saving for college, deciding on credit card balance transfers and home loan refinance and making new purchases.

We can easily reclaim our national economy, – reduce our national debt by trillions, create millions of jobs and jump start our businesses, all by just Curbing Health Care Costs This book provides workable and practical solution that endeavors to create millions of jobs, reduce our exploding debt and deficit, and jump starting our economy by cutting health care costs. This comprehensive volume is based on extensive research, and provides middle-of-the-road solutions that reach across political aisles as a Centrist and sensible plan to get our nation’s economy back on track. The Solution is based on unleashing billions of dollars from our sky high (and still rising) health care costs. We are currently spending an unbelievable .5 trillion dollars on health care every year. These costs are completely unjustified and unfair compared to any metric you choose – 22 times faster than the population growth, 8 times faster than the wage growth and 6 times faster than the inflation! Right now practically every employer and 160 million employees across USA are getting crushed by the ever-increasing load of health care costs every year. Employers are now maxed out paying for these rising premiums every year. And now they have no choice but to push the increased premiums down the employee’s throats. And worse, due to the increased cost of production for the goods and services, our businesses are becoming more and more uncompetitive in the global markets to the extent they either have to close their doors permanently or lay off more and more employees every year. The solution proposed here in is a market driven plan that empowers the consumer by creating a very special consumer driven plan tied to a tax advantaged special health savings account called a “Healthy Life Fund (HLF)”. HLF’s are far more powerful than regular Health Savings Accounts (HSA’s) and will produce much higher savings for you and will dramatically lower health care costs and increase the quality of care at the same time. The book has debunked all the self-serving myths associated by this industry. Reducing these costs by as little as 10% can unleash as much as 0 billion dollars a year directly into the economy right now, which can create millions of good paying jobs right here in America and start to reduce our debt substantially. The good news is that the solution proposed in this book can reduce these costs by as much as 50% while substantially improving the quality of health care delivery to people. 50% savings means 00 billion dollars a year into our economy every year. Now that’s a real stimulus to create millions of American jobs, reduce our massive debt and jump start our economy for good without adding a red cent to our debt from the Chinese. This crystal clear clarification provides simple and workable guidelines that will produce amazing results, including lowering our debt, creating millions of jobs, and securing our country’s economic future and making health care affordable once again! Learn how to save up to ,000 or more each and every year right now! IF YOU LOVE YOUR COUNTRY, YOU MUST READ THIS IMPORTANT BOOK! The cost of health care is single-handedly bankrupting hard working Americans and destroying our economy! Here are a few astounding facts: * Over 60% of bankruptcies in America are due to un-payable medical bills, and over 80% of those who filed had health insurance. * Health care costs are growing exponentially. Right now they are consuming one out of every five dollars Americans produce with their blood, sweat and tears. At this rate, health care will eat up 100% of our economic output (GDP) in just thirty years from today! * Rising health care costs have caused thousands of American businesses to scale back or close, resulting in millions of hardworking Americans losing their jobs.

With the monumental passing of President Obamas Health Care Reform Bill in Congress, a new study by InsuranceProviders.com finds health insurance cooperatives (co-ops) could provide a resolve between the largely divided American people.
According to the study, a co-op healthcare system is the opposite of the traditional, for-profit healthcare companies where the board of directors is elected by the members. The board of directors also consists of members. This type of democratic healthcare system ensures that every member has a voice.
A co-op healthcare system would also focus on low-cost care, preventative care and the use of generic medications. A large emphasis on the use of locally-produced medicine and local pharmacies would be seen as well.
Several notable quotations from the study include:
While free enterprise is encouraged in the US, there is a big problem with public healthcare providers: their insurance is very expensive.
The biggest difference between co-ops and publicly owned health insurance providers involves who is actually running the insurance company.
Perhaps the greatest potential benefit from the introduction of health insurance co-ops throughout the country is the end of the dangerous monopolies that are threatening to make affordable health insurance beyond easy reach.
Cooperative programs have worked well in other industries such as electricity, natural gas, and even dairy products.
By emphasizing education and preventative medicine, members of cooperative healthcare programs will have fewer health-related problems as they age.

Pacific Alliance Advertising provides custom solutions using traditional and new media. The company is based out of Los Angeles but handles accounts in various regions across the country and places business on a local and national basis. The Partners have extensive experience in traditional media but have fully embraced new media from day one. As such, they hired some of the best website developers in the business. These experts have worked with many of the Fortune 500 Companies and specialize in driving traffic to websites and to mobile devices.
For many years, small business owners have worked hard to grow their business but in most cases their expertise is specific to their own business category whether it be restaurants, retail stores or the healthcare industry. The majority of them are very aware of the need to promote their business but oftentimes are overwhelmed with the number of choices that are out there. What makes it even more frustrating for them is to have to deal with the unending onslaught of vendors knocking on their door or calling them while theyre busy dealing with customers. The fact that most of these vendors have strong type A personalities and insist that what theyre selling is best doesnt make it any easier.
I find it to be very rewarding when I can eliminate the headaches of our clients by dealing directly with their vendors, analyzing their offerings and deciding which options will lead to the highest possible Return On Investment says Bill Dietz, Partner at Pacific Alliance Advertising. The best part is that our service is free to our clients because the media providers pay us for placing the business with them.
There is nothing better than to see a company grow their revenue and go from one location to thirty-eight locations, like one of our lending institution clients did added Jesse Navarro, also a Partner at Pacific Alliance Advertising. When you handle an account over the years you become like family with your clients and really take their success seriously. Weve found that its critical to fully understand the goals and objectives of our clients and ensure that we provide customized campaigns and added value to help ensure their success.
Bill added We recently met with a healthcare service provider that was really taken advantage of by one of the television vendors. After reviewing their schedule we were able to save them 26% by switching them to a different provider that had a stronger presence within their trading radius and applying our negotiated rates. In addition we increased the frequency of their campaign by more than 114%, along with their reach. This was a real eye opener for the client and provided him with the peace of mind that he needed so that he could concentrate on what he does best manage his core business.
Running an efficient and consistent campaign is only part of the equation. Its equally important to ensure that the creative is compelling and has a strong call to action.

Bill Dietz has extensive experience in Media Buying and has worked at major agencies in New York and Los Angeles as a Buying Supervisor. He was also a Sales Manager for various Broadcast and Cable Television Organizations, including Tribune, Time Warner, Comcast, AT&T and MediaOne. In addition, he ran the Los Angeles Office for National Cable Communications, a company that sells advertising on Cable Systems and Cable Interconnects in over 200 markets across the country. He has also trained Managers and AEs on how to build more effective Television Campaigns.
Jesse Navarro also has extensive media experience. He started his career as an Account Executive for The Yellow Pages. He then worked as a Senior Account Executive for Comcast and MediaOne and a Sales Manager for Charter Communications and Time Warner. In addition, he was the Media Director at Greenstripe Media which handled many high profile accounts including Fletcher Jones Motor Cars.

It is scalable to work with any practice regardless of size and provides a real benefit to a growing number of practices and patients.
Our patients have been asking for an online payment solution that allows them to get electronic bills and pay online since this is becoming their preferred method for paying most bills today.
