Study: ObamaCare market ‘stabilizing,’ not collapsing | TheHill

Filed under: Economics, Health — Scottie @ 09:53

Excerpt below.   Hugs

“Early results from 2017 suggest the individual market is stabilizing and insurers in this market are regaining profitability,” the study finds. “Insurer financial results show no sign of a market collapse.”

Insurers’ financial results have improved since the initial couple of years of the health law, the analysis finds.

For example, it found that insurers in the first quarter of this year paid out 75 percent of their premiums in claims. That’s a significant improvement from the first quarter of 2015, when 88 percent of premiums were paid out for claims.

Average claims costs also grew slowly in the first part of this year, pushing back on fears that healthy people would drop coverage.

Milo Sleeping with Scottie

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 14:40

As I have posted before Milo loves to sleep on my head or next to my face. I woke up about 02:10 with milo stretched around my head. I wanted to get a picture with him like that. He was purring like a motorcycle going down a highway. I disturbed him getting my phone to take the pictures, but he let me get these pictures. Then I put my phone down and he started pouring again and I went back to sleep. Oh there is no light on, the light is just from the screen on the phone. Love to all. Hugs

Plastic free July

Again this is an important message we have to learn. It has to become a way of life to conserve and use less. To use smartly. After all this is the only place that has us, and we need this place to live. Hugs

Ends and Beginnings

ocean pollution“People had more than they needed. We had no idea what was precious and what wasn’t. We threw away things people kill each other for now.” – Denzel Washington in The Book of Eli

I saw a bumper sticker this morning that read “Live simply so others can simply live.” I know that each and every one of us would have our own definition of what living simply looks like. Some make a conscious effort to live simply, others because it is the only way they can afford to live, and others, well others just plain old don’t give a shit. There are those of us whose view is the earth and its resources serve us rather than the other way around. This may be a short-sighted view of today and the future but each of us, knowingly and unknowingly, contribute to that view by our actions.

Plastic Free July is an effort raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable…

BBQ & Beer Cooler

Tennessee Engineering at its Best

When you are finished BBQing, and the ice has melted, just pull

the handle down & the fire goes out.

Is this a great country, or what?!!
