Revolutionizing the Way We Pay for Healthcare: Can Tech Give You Freedom from Health Insurance?

YourUpdateTV

Every year, a quarter million Americans declare bankruptcy due to medical bills despite having health insurance. Recently, Andy Schoonover, Founder and CEO of CrowdHealth, teamed with YourUpdateTV on a satellite media to discuss how leveraging technology can help you get your healthcare freedom back without breaking the bank. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/7HLiYcpGqFU For 30 years, the middle class has experienced no real income growth due to the increasing costs of health insurance. Research shows inadequate health insurance accounts for nearly 67 percent of all bankruptcies. This statistic is staggering and illustrates a difficult reality for the many American families navigating today’s insurance market. Technology is being used to build a new, community-powered solution for all. CrowdHealth is an app and technology platform that allows you to make a monthly contribution to the Community and those funds are used to fund the community’s health care bills. Crowdfunding models of paying for health care maximize the probability that all members’ eligible bills will be paid in full each month. These models come without the burdens of skyrocketing premiums and deductibles. Unlike traditional models, members aren’t chained to yearly contracts and have more flexibility and autonomy with crowdfunded models. CrowdHealth provides app-based tools such as: The latest innovation in fintech, allowing their members to aggregate crowdsourced funds to pay doctors quickly and directly. A nationwide doctor quality and cost database that empowers their members to make informed decisions about their care without the limitation of restrictive networks. Highly engaged, personalized Care Advocacy to help their members navigate their health journeys. Negotiation and legal services that fight for patients when dealing with outrageous bills. Access to deeply discounted prescription drugs. By eliminating insurance plan middlemen, reimagining the healthcare payment system and empowering doctors to direct care choices, CrowdHealth will help their members significantly reduce their out-of-pocket expenses when compared to healthcare.gov plans.

About Andy Schoonover Andy Schoonover is founder and CEO of CrowdHealth, a community-powered alternative to health insurance that provides a revolutionary way of paying for healthcare bills through crowdfunding.

Hi-Tech Holiday Gift Guide

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/8TiX7QwCt14 With the holiday hustle and bustle in full swing, many U.S. consumers are still struggling to find the perfect tech gifts for our loved ones. A new study from the Consumer Technology Association found that this season’s tech sales will hit $142.5 billion. Tech Expert, Dave King has a few ideas to help shoppers score this year’s hottest gadgets and gear. TECH & SELF-CARE: Tech has helped transform aspects of our daily lives, including fitness, productivity, and mindfulness. One area King is excited to talk about is oral care. The Oral-B iO Series 8 combines powerful, but gentle micro-vibrations with a unique dentist-inspired round brush head design for a professional clean feeling every day. The Smart Pressure Sensor helps to keep people from brushing too hard to protect their gums and enamel. AI Recognition, plus an interactive display, helps guide brushers to their best clean for all areas of the mouth. A 2-minute quadrant timer comes built-in that pulsates every 30 seconds, ensuring a complete clean. King adds, “The frictionless, smooth magnetic drive system transfers energy to the bristle tips for spectacular clean teeth.” The Oral-B iO Series 8 is available at oralb.com and all major retailers. For more information, visit https://oralb.com/en-us/products/electric-toothbrushes/oral-b-io-series-8-electric-toothbrush-black-onyx/?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_term=&gclid=Cj0KCQjwtrSLBhCLARIsACh6RmiEbq-V4oACt4hbQA_DLBSabI5mKHcPOutf6QUoarstrWysIoViKx4aAroYEA. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oralb Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/oralb/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/OralB UP YOUR PROFESSIONAL GAME WITH TECH GEAR: All signs are pointing to remote work persisting and trending permanent for many American businesses. King says we’ve learned so much about managing hybrid and remote work over the past year-and-a-half. “At this point, it’s really time to up our professional games to look and sound our very best,” highlights King. The tech expert recommends the Poly Studio P5 kit with Sync 20, a high-performance webcam optimized for video conferencing with 1080p resolution that works with any cloud-based video platform such as Zoom and Teams – paired with the Poly Sync 20 smart speakerphone to deliver a premium audio experience. This pro-grade kit is the perfect choice for the remote or hybrid worker in your life. These tech items are available through Poly.com, Amazon, Best Buy, and other major retailers. For more information, visit https://www.poly.com/us/en/shop/holiday-promotions. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/PolyCompany/ Twitter: @PolyCompany Instagram: @PolyCompany Hashtags: #PolySync #PolyStudio UPGRADE - FOCUS ON PRODUCTIVITY & EFFICIENCY: King says there are other ways tech can be used to increase work from home productivity and efficiency. One of his top recommendations is to upgrade everyday gadgets to something special. One of the tech expert’s favorite finds is the Happy Hacking Keyboard (HHKB) from Fujitsu Computer Products of America. He says it has an incredible following of loyal programmers, developers, and coders all over the world. “I like it’s compact, highly-customizable design and connectivity options,” adds King. The HHKB comes in three different models, two different colors — ivory and charcoal, and with either stamped or blank keys. One keyboard King highlights is the Professional HYBRID Type-S. “This keyboard is ideal for people working from home, programmers, and all computer pros. Its exclusive use of Topre silent switches provides supreme tactility, extra comfort and keystroke precision eliminating keyboard clacking,” King continues, “It’s also compact — 60% of the size of standard keyboards — and features Bluetooth compatibility so users can connect to smartphones, tablets and more.” The Professional HYBRID Type-S is available on Amazon.com or at HHKeyboard.us. For more information, visit https://hhkeyboard.us/. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hhkbUS/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hhkb_realforce_us/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/HHKB_RF_US RESEARCH & REVIEW: A record 191 million U.S. adults plan to purchase tech items this holiday season. King says consumers can make sure they’re getting the right gift at the best price. Another one of his recommendations is to stay calm and focused. Additionally, it’s important to rely on great reviews to manage shopping expectations. King turns to the community at Slickdeals. “No one is selling anything. The service is about shoppers helping shoppers,” says the tech expert. “It’s the only shopping platform powered by millions of real people who are out there discovering, sharing, and vetting the best deals.” The site, apps, browser extension, and new loyalty program have millions of users who connect and discover the very best deals from all the top retailers, like Walmart and Amazon. King says this is important, “So you can know if you're actually getting the best product at the best price,” adding, “It’s like having 12 million friends help you understand where the best deals on the best products are happening. If you’re shopping for something specific, set a deal alert, so you’re notified when something matching your criteria gets posted.” To find reviews, go to https://slickdeals.net/.

"In this new world of work, you can be the CEO of your own career. Talent can move across the country or across the world on their own terms and their employer can benefit,” said Ben Wright, Velocity Global founder, and CEO. “The ‘Out of Office Year’ demonstrates to employers and employees how simple it is to work from anywhere, all while gaining new life experiences and a broader world view.” Workplace flexibility remains top of mind for workers. According to an August 2021 survey from FlexJobs, 58% of employees reported they wanted to be full-time remote post-pandemic. It’s a desire among business leaders as well. In the 2022 Velocity Global Work in Progress report, 63% of the more than 1,000 tech leaders surveyed said they would prefer to work from a new location such as closer to family or overseas. As employers continue to institute policies around different workplace concepts – remote, in-office, or hybrid – employees are evaluating if those policies align with their priorities. “The ability to work remotely is one of the most important conversations employers can have with their current and potential employees,” said Robert Herjavec, founder and CEO of Herjavec Group and Velocity Global brand ambassador. “I grew a leading cybersecurity company by committing to hire top talent from anywhere. I know the benefits that ‘work anywhere’ brings to a business, but now employees know the benefits it brings to their lives. There’s no turning back and Velocity Global’s Out of Office Year sheds light on how simple it can be to make this benefit a reality.” Out of Office Year Contest Details The contest is open to all U.S. residents interested in moving to another location while keeping their current job.

Velocity Global will support that employee through its global work platform in any of more than 185 countries for one year at no cost to the employer. The employer simply continues to pay the salary, benefits, and other regulatory requirements just as they do now for that employee. The winners and their stories will be chronicled through Velocity Global’s social media channels to inspire other employees and employers to enter the future of work.

Inspired by the Long Drink, The Boston Beer Company is launching all-new ‘Bevy Long Drink.’ Recently, Annette Fritsch, Senior Director of Product Development at The Boston Beer Company, participated in a satellite media tour to discuss the inspiration of the ‘Bevy Long Drink’ and much more.

Bevy Long Drink is made with an original malt base containing natural flavors and wild juniper berries and is currently available in two styles, Hard Citrus Refresher and Hard Berry Refresher. Bevy's new hard citrus refresher is made from a delicious and easy-drinking blend of citrus flavors and wild juniper berries for an exceptionally thirst-quenching beverage that's perfect for any occasion. Bevy Long Drink is slightly sweet, tart, refreshing, and packed with flavor, all at 5.8% ABV. Boston Beer, maker of other industry leading alcohol beverages Samuel Adams beer, Twisted Tea, Truly Hard Seltzer, Angry Orchard, and Dogfish Head beer plans to continue its proven track record of innovation to bring Finland's best kept secret to US drinkers.
