HIPAA

'HIPAA Protects Workers And Their Families By
-Limiting exclusions for preexisting medical conditions (known as preexisting conditions).
-Providing credit against maximum preexisting condition exclusion periods for prior health coverage and a process for providing certificates showing periods of prior coverage to a new group health plan or health insurance issuer.
-Providing new rights that allow individuals to enroll for health coverage when they lose other health coverage, get married or add a new dependent.
-Prohibiting discrimination in enrollment and in premiums charged to employees and their dependents based on health status-related factors.
-Guaranteeing availability of health insurance coverage for small employers and renewability of health insurance coverage for both small and large employers.
-Preserving the states’ role in regulating health insurance, including the states’ authority to provide greater protections than those available under federal law.

Preexisting Condition Exclusions
-The law defines a preexisting condition as one for which medical advice, diagnosis, care, or treatment was recommended or received during the 6-month period prior to an individual’s enrollment date (which is the earlier of the first day of health coverage or the first day of any waiting period for coverage).
-Group health plans and issuers may not exclude an individual’s preexisting medical condition from coverage for more than 12 months (18 months for late enrollees) after an individual’s enrollment date.
-Under HIPAA, a new employer’s plan must give individuals credit for the length of time they had prior continuous health coverage, without a break in coverage of 63 days or more, thereby reducing or eliminating the 12-month exclusion period (18 months for late enrollees).

Creditable Coverage

-Includes prior coverage under another group health plan, an individual health insurance policy, COBRA, Medicaid, Medicare, CHAMPUS, the Indian Health Service, a state health benefits risk pool, FEHBP, the Peace Corps Act, or a public health plan.

Certificates Of Creditable Coverage
-Certificates of creditable coverage must be provided automatically and free of charge by the plan or issuer when an individual loses coverage under the plan, becomes entitled to elect COBRA continuation coverage or exhausts COBRA continuation coverage. A certificate must also be provided free of charge upon request while you have health coverage or anytime within 24 months after your coverage ends.
-Certificates of creditable coverage should contain information about the length of time you or your dependents had coverage as well as the length of any waiting period for coverage that applied to you or your dependents.
-For plan years beginning on or after July 1, 2005, certificates of creditable coverage should also include an educational statement that describes individuals' HIPAA portability rights. A new model certificate is available on EBSAs Web site.
-If a certificate is not received, or the information on the certificate is wrong, you should contact your prior plan or issuer. You have a right to show prior creditable coverage with other evidence — like pay stubs, explanation of benefits, letters from a doctor — if you cannot get a certificate.

Special Enrollment Rights
-Are provided for individuals who lose their coverage in certain situations, including on separation, divorce, death, termination of employment and reduction in hours. Special enrollment rights also are provided if employer contributions toward the other coverage terminates.
-Are provided for employees, their spouses and new dependents upon marriage, birth, adoption or placement for adoption.

Discrimination Prohibitions

-Ensure that individuals are not excluded coverage factors."

And those foreign corporations probably pay more than those based in America. Twenty-six major American corporations (including General Electric, Boeing, Verizon, and Mattel) have paid no tax for the last four years despite billions in profits.

California hedge fund investor gives $100 million to pro-environmentalist candidates

WASHINGTON (Reuters) A California hedge fund investor has pledged $100 million in contributions to pro-environmentalist congressional campaigns, bolstering the battle against climate change.

Billionaire Tom Steyer on Wednesday night hosted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and six other Democratic lawmakers for a fundraiser at his San Francisco home and is planning an ad campaign for candidates who support tough action on climate change.

Steyer, founder of the hedge fund Farallon Capital, plans to spend $50 million of his own money and raise another $50 million from other donors for the November midterm elections

His aim is to serve as a political counterweight to the conservative billionaire Koch brothers, who have already spent $30 million so far this year on attack ads targeting vulnerable Democratic senators who have supported the healthcare reform law popularly known as Obamacare.

Steyer may also be considering the governors race in Florida and supporting the challenger to incumbent Republican Rick Scott. Scott has said that scientific evidence has not established that humans have caused climate change.

In the real world
European Union foreign ministers have agreed to impose sanctions on Ukrainian officials "responsible for violence and excessive force".
Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt tweeted that asset freezes and travel bans would be adopted "as a matter of urgency".
At least 21 anti-government protesters died in clashes in Kiev on Thursday.
Officials said that one policeman had also died and that 67 police had been captured by protesters.
EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said the "prime responsibility" to get talks between the two sides under way lay with President Viktor Yanukovych.
Speaking after an emergency meeting of EU foreign minsters in Brussels, she said they had also agreed to "suspend export licences for equipment for internal repression".
Kiev is burning; the people are pulling up the cobble stones from the streets and throwing them. Standing there singing.

As Realtime suggested; it may have been a staged publicity stunt. I think if it was real; that idiot may have started shooting at them. Miami Beach is a diverse population; no wants a redneck racist murderer there and one day Zimmerman will meet his match.
