      May is Drowning Prevention Awareness Month – Evolution Swim Academy

      We are all humans. We do make mistakes and yes, it can happen to you. No matter how careful we are, all it takes is a 30-second distraction to send us into panic mode because we cannot locate a child.

May is National Drowning Prevention Month but be aware that drowning is not seasonal (it just gets worse during certain months of the year). It can and does happen all year and we need to know how best to prepare our children to save themselves when we are not there to do it.

      ‘Medicare for All’s’ rich benefits ‘leapfrog’ other nations

      The “Medicare for All” plan embraced by leading 2020 Democrats appears more lavish than what other advanced countries offer, compounding the cost but also potentially broadening its popular appeal.

      The plan from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would charge no copays or deductibles for medical care, allowing only limited cost-sharing for some prescription drugs. It would cover long-term care at home and in community settings. Dental, vision and hearing coverage would be included.

      California hospitals paid 209% of Medicare by private insurers, study finds

      The center's analysis of financial data filed by hospitals with the California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development found that while Medicare paid an average of 79 percent of cost, private insurers paid an average of 165 percent of cost — more than twice as much as Medicare.

      Researchers uncovered substantial variation in how hospitals' private insurance payments compared to Medicare reimbursement. Private insurance payments averaged 364 percent of Medicare for the 10 percent of California hospitals with the highest ratio of private to Medicare payments. Comparatively, for the 10 percent with the lowest ratio, average private insurance payments were 89 percent of Medicare.
