Home healthcare offers a wide range of healthcare services that can be given in the home when someone is suffering from an illness or injury. Many people prefer to receive this kind of care in the comfort of their own homes as opposed to obtaining care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). Home health care is generally less expensive, may be more convenient and just as effective as care received from a facility.
Diabetes is a lifelong disease that affects the way the body handles glucose, a type of sugar, in the blood. There are about 27 million people in the United States with diabetes, approximately 25% of those are people aged 60 and over.

We received an interesting question about disability and Medicare coverage on our Facebook page and so we decided to make it a blog topic.

If you have not, it is a term you may want to become familiar with. One of the components of Medicare Part B is the excess charge. These Part B charges can come about if an enrollee goes to see a physician or receives services from a hospital or facility that does not accept Medicare. If they do not accept Medicare, and the Medicare approved amount for service is lower than what they charge, then the doctors or hospitals can claim excess charges. This means that depending on what your plan pays- you could be left responsible paying the difference between what Medicare pays versus what the doctor charges.

As long as you are able to remain active there is a good chance that you give your bone health a second thought. But did you know that after age 30 you start losing bone density? Women will lose up to 20 percent of bone mineral density in the five to seven years after they reach menopause, but by age 65 men and women lose bone density at the same rate. Unfortunately the loss of bone mass could end up causing life changing fractures. What you may not know is that while you cannot prevent the loss of bone mass, you can prevent how quickly you lose it, which in turn can help you to prevent osteoporosis down the road.
