New App Displays What Original Medicare Covers

On January 28, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched a new app that gives consumers a modernized Medicare experience with direct access on a mobile device to some of the most-used content on Medicare.gov. The new “What’s Covered” app lets people with Original Medicare, caregivers and others quickly see whether Medicare covers a specific medical item or service. Consumers can now use their mobile device to more easily get accurate, consistent Original Medicare coverage information in the doctor’s office, the hospital, or anywhere else they use their mobile device.

Humor and Caregiving

Laughter is the best medicine. This expression is as true for caregivers as it is for patients. As a caregiver, you may feel as though you have nothing to laugh about.

Or you may feel guilty about laughing and injecting any fun in your day when your loved one is sick and needs your help. There is nothing to feel guilty about.

Big Win for Blue Water Vietnam Veterans

On January 29, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit passed a new law in late January that will now allow veterans who served within twelve nautical miles of the Republic of Vietnam to be entitled to service connected benefits based upon a condition that is presumptive to exposure to Agent Orange. This is also a win for the eligible survivors of these veterans. Prior to this decision, only those veterans with "boots on the ground" were entitled presumptively to benefits related to certain conditions; however, "boots on the ground" is no longer a requirement to receive benefits for the following conditions if the veteran served within the designated twelve nautical

Considerations for People Diagnosed with Younger Onset Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s disease affects 5.7 million Americans. The majority of people who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s are over the age of 65. However, it is not just a disease of old people. Up to five percent of the people who have Alzheimer’s, or as many as 200,000 individuals, are younger than 65. This type of Alzheimer’s is referred to as younger-onset Alzheimer’s. People in the prime of their lives do not expect to receive a diagnosis of dementia and many doctors do not look for or think about Alzheimer’s as the source of a person’s issues.
