Before you give out any personal or financial information online, whether it’s to buy an item or get more information, remember that anyone can set up shop online. If you’re thinking about buying a heath-related product from an unfamiliar company or website, do some research.
Confirm the online seller’s physical address (not just a P.O. Box) and phone number, so you know you can reach someone if you need to.
Do a search for the company name and website, and be sure to look beyond the first page of results. If you find a lot of negative reviews, you are better off taking your business elsewhere.
Look for indicators the site is secure, like a URL that begins with https (the “s” is for secure). But that’s not foolproof: security icons can be forged. Avoid sites that ask you to send personal or financial information by email, or ask you to wire cash through a money transfer service.
No one wants to get older but unfortunately, until they discover an elixir of youth, it’s fairly unavoidable.
But just because you have to get older, no one said you had to do it quickly. And no one said you couldn’t age well and keep your youthful good looks, energy and health!
Many of us make the assumption that getting old automatically has to mean getting covered in wrinkles, losing our ability to walk around and eventually developing incontinence and dementia.

In His Wisdom,God decreed that seniors become forgetful,so they would have to search for their glasses, keys, and other things,thus doing more walking. And God looked down and saw that it was good.

Then God considered the function of bladdersand decided seniors would have additional calls of nature,requiring more trips to the bathroom, thus providing more exercise. God looked down and saw that it was good.
So if you find as you age, you are getting up and down more, remember it’s God’s will. It is all in your best interest even though you mutter under your breath.
Nine Important Facts to Remember as You Grow Older:
Mindfulness is a tool that has become exceedingly popular recently. Only a few years ago the general public would not be familiar with the term, whereas today it’s something we hear about all the time in a range of different contexts.
In some ways this is a good thing: mindfulness is a great tool to be aware of and it can be used to greatly improve your concentration, awareness, and happiness. But at the same time, it’s also a bad thing: because it has been misappropriated in many instances and many people don’t actually really understand what it means anymore.
Today Medicare announced the 2017 cost increases for Medicare.
Most important for our clients include: Part B Deductible: From $166 to $183 for 2017
This means those on Plan D or Plan G will be paying the first $183 of Part B (outpatient) services in 2017 before the Medicare Supplement plan kicks in to pay the rest. This means that those cost calculations that go into Plan F rate increases will now have to account for a higher embedded Part B deductible, too (higher rates coming).
In other news, the monthly premium paid to the government by the seniors for Part B will be going from a base of $104.90 to now an average of $109.00.
This is only for those protected by the “hold harmless provision” and not subject to the income-related higher adjustment (MACRA). So, basically, the majority of seniors (not high income) who are drawing Social Security will be paying $109.00 per month for Part B in 2017.
The Part A deductible for going into the hospital is going up by $28 from $1,288 to $1,316, but of course, this is paid in full by the Medicare Supplements that we sell.
Stroke is a condition that falls under the umbrella of heart disease. Most people don’t realize that there are three kinds of stroke and that there are things you can do to reduce your risk of all kinds of stroke.
