Two Dental Benefits providers, Companion Life and Kansas City Life, have both recently announced coverage for a custom periodontal medicament tray code D5994.

Peroxide delivered deep with the tray overcomes these antibiotic limitations for long-term gingival health.”

— Duane C. Keller, DMD, FAGD

SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI, USA, February 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two Dental Benefits providers, Companion Life and Kansas City Life, have both recently announced coverage for dental procedure code D5994 documenting a periodontal medicament carrier, a custom-fabricated tray used to deliver medication into periodontal pockets.

Initial reviews of insurance claim data for patients who have received Perio Trays® indicate that this benefit translates into better treatment outcomes for patients and a reduction in longer-term health costs. For companies that provide both dental and medical insurance, the savings in health care costs are expected to multiply given that treatment for periodontal disease has been shown to reduce overall healthcare costs for patients with diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and pregnancy.

The most common periodontal medicament delivery device available to patients is the Perio Tray. Perio Trays have an internal peripheral seal and are proven to deliver medication deep into periodontal pockets to fight infections between office visits. Patients can only obtain a prescription Perio Tray through a licensed dentist who will develop and monitor a treatment plan for individual patients.

Perio Trays are used adjunctively to provide the best homecare. Toothbrush, rinse and floss can’t reach deep enough into periodontal pockets to help the 46% of Americans adults with chronic periodontitis. The Perio Tray has been shown to place medication into shallow and deep pockets to reduce inflammation and pocket depths when used in 15-minute daily applications.

“The key with prescription tray therapy” says Dr. Duane Keller, the inventor of the Perio Tray, “is to use a low concentration of peroxide to oxygenate the pockets, kill anaerobic bacteria, and change the microenvironment to create conditions for healthy bacterial regrowth. We used to provide antibiotics, but their benefits were largely temporary. Peroxide delivered deep with the tray overcomes these antibiotic limitations for long-term gingival health.”

MyKey Reinvents Online Accommodation Technology


MyKey Booking Technology

MyKey Booking Technology

MasterKey Alliance launches MyKey.com, the world’s first hotels and vetted housing booking engine.

I kept hearing that dealing with online accommodations should be easier, so I listened.”

— Gordon Doell, President and CEO MasterKey

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN, CANADA, January 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — MasterKey Alliance Inc., the fastest growing technology company in corporate housing and serviced apartments, launches MyKey.com, the world’s first hotels and vetted corporate housing booking engine.

Yesterday, travelers faced a myriad of sites for hotels, individuals renting rooms or homes, or privately managed properties limited to a specific city or region. Booking accommodations meant wading through site after site, comparing apples to oranges, and hoping to find safe accommodations in the right city, at a fair price. It was time consuming, unregulated, and ripe with risk.

Today, MyKey reinvents how the world books and manages accommodations on a global scale. MyKey.com is the first global site to compare hotels with vetted serviced apartments and furnished homes on one easy system. To avoid the risk with peer to peer sites, MyKey connects users with professionally operated, individually vetted temporary housing that comply with local and federal regulations.

This unique technology is the vision of MasterKey Alliance President and CEO, Gordon Doell. “The inspiration for MyKey came from my friends.” explains Doell. “They were tired of jumping from site to site, arguing over hidden fees, wrestling with multiple invoices and reports, and dealing with the risk of unregulated properties. I kept hearing it should be easier, so I listened.”

Doell has assembled a solid team of industry experts and technologists to accomplish exactly that – make booking accommodations, living away from home, and managing the business aspect easier. The concept was so well received, that MyKey attracted qualified housing providers and hotels in over 170 countries in the first year of development.

Created by corporate housing veterans, MyKey is designed to reinvent the world’s temporary housing experience from the initial search to payment and reporting. The result is a single source of safe, professionally managed, transparently priced accommodations, with the diversity and global reach to fit each travelers’ lifestyle with their company’s needs.

MasterKey Alliance Inc. (MasterKey) is the world’s fastest growing technology company in the corporate housing and serviced apartments industries. MyKey.com, the brainchild of MasterKey, is the world’s first hotels and vetted corporate housing search engine. With properties in over 170 countries, MyKey offers easy booking and easy living options anywhere business or life takes you.

Intermountain Healthcare Adds New Elements to Healthy Eating Environment Campaign

For nearly a decade, Intermountain’s LiVe Well message has been about eating healthier and being active

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, January 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Starting March 1st, 2017, Intermountain Healthcare facilities will be replacing sugary beverages and candy with healthier choices. The move furthers Intermountain’s mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible.

Ending the sales of sugar-added beverages, candy, and less-healthy snacks will take place at Intermountain’s cafes, gift shops, vending machines and pharmacies. Intermountain will increase the availability of healthier options at those venues based on evidence in nutrition research and dietary guidelines.
While the organization won’t be selling sugary beverages, candy, or less-healthy snacks at its facilities, people can choose to bring their own.

For nearly a decade, Intermountain’s LiVe Well message has been about eating healthier and being active. Intermountain began offering “Healthy Plates” at its cafes in 2014. In 2016 nearly 150,000 Healthy Plates were sold. Following evidence-based research, Intermountain’s Food and Nutrition Services teams will continue to systematically evaluate menu and snack options, increasing the healthy options available and offering fewer foods that contain added sugar, salt, and saturated fats.

Healthy eating environments with good nutrition play a vital role in health. Excessive sugar consumption can contribute to obesity and a host of adverse health conditions. An alarming number of people are living with prediabetes, whose blood glucose is elevated, with approximately 114,000 people in Utah and Southern Idaho affected. Around 90 percent don’t know they have prediabetes, which can lead to type 2 diabetes and increased heart attack and stroke risks.

While sugar is part of the daily calorie intake, most do not realize that added sugar is used in numerous foods. Such as breakfast cereals, salad dressings, pasta sauces, and crackers.

“We are trying to make people aware of where these added sugars are and how to best avoid them. The two biggest ways to reduce added sugars is with sodas and candy,” said Robin Aufdenkampe, MS, RDN, CD, Director of Food and Nutrition Services at Intermountain.

With this change, Intermountain joins more than 30 health systems nationwide that have adopted similar policies.

Intermountain Healthcare is a not-for-profit health system based in Salt Lake City. Recognized for its excellent clinical care and low costs, Intermountain strives to help people live the healthiest lives possible.

TieTechnology Unveils Expansion with Innovative and Distinctive VoIP Phone Services as an Advanced Hosted Service Provider

Many small businesses today are making the switch over to voip business phone systems and support.”

— Don Anderson

TAMPA, FLORIDA, USA, January 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — VoIP, colloquially known as Internet telephony, converts voice vibrations to compressed digital signals that translate to Internet Protocol (IP) packets. IP packets provide top tier voip business phone services and are then transmitted and converted to a regular telephone signal.

In essence, VoIP allows computer users and businesses to make telephone calls from a desktop computer equipped with a voip phone through enterprise voip solutions. Internet telephony offers services and benefits unparalleled by traditional phone service.

Many small businesses today are making the switch over to voip business phone systems. There are plenty of advantages to using such a hosted voip service provider, but a lot of small businesses are overlooking some of the most valuable features. Beyond options like voicemail, call waiting, toll-free numbers, call forwarding, and remote operation, companies will discover a host of other features that can help any small business.

1: Voicemail to Email Transcription
Voicemail to email transcription transcribes voicemail messages to text and sends them to a preferred email. Employees don't need to furiously scribbling names, numbers, and addresses.

2: Call Screening
Call screening is an often-forgotten feature of the VoIP business world that can come in handy. It allows businesses to look at a number on the caller ID and choose how to treat it.

3: Coaching Tools
Instead of giving employees advice after ending phone conversations with customers, the systems allow recommendations during the call.

4: Auto Attendant
An auto attendant is one of the hidden gems of having hosted phone service. This feature allows callers with a menu to interact to choose an appropriate extension. Businesses will appear more professional and impressive.

5: Conferencing
Most people know about conferencing with voip services, but not everyone takes advantage of all the features that might come with it. TieTechnology VoIP technology combines and stores data onto one single network that increases the manageability, cost-effectiveness, and productivity for businesses that need reliable communication.

Why People Buy Annuities

Stuart Chamberlin, President at Chamberlin Financial

With so many advisers recommending annuities these days its difficult to know which one is right for you. Like any investment there are pros and cons.

Create your own personal pension by using an annuity”

— Stuart Chamberlin

BOCA RATON , FLORIDA, USA , January 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The word annuity for some can be the end of the conversation drawing upon a perceived Idea of what an annuity is usually based on a lot of misinformation and bad publicity. But yet billions of dollars are put into annuities every year and for good reason. Annuities offer something that other investments just don’t and that is a peace of mind knowing that you won’t out live your money.

With any investment there are always pro’s and con’s so let us explore some basics on what an annuity is and is not. There are basically two types of annuity classes: deferred and immediate. Under the deferred class you have several categories such as fixed, fixed indexed, variable. The annuities are called deferred because you’re deferring your income and any growth inside the annuity is growing tax deferred to be taxed on withdrawals on a last in first out (LIFO) basis.

So let’s take a look at some deferred fixed annuities.

Fixed annuity or just a straight fixed also called a multi-year guaranteed annuity (MYGA)
In this annuity you get a simple interest rate like a CD but issued and backed by an insurance company with usually a higher interest rate than a CD. The durations can be anywhere from 3-10 years and you can take the interest annually if you wish. If inflation is an issue then the fixed annuity might not be the best recommendation since interest rates are so low at this time. But if you’re comparing CD rates with MYGA’s then you’re on the same page.

Fixed Indexed annuities or (FIA’s)

A fixed indexed annuity offers safety of principal like a traditional fixed annuity but linked to an index like the S&P 500. Your typical FIA has two values one is the contract value which is also the death benefit and the other is the income account value (IAV) which is only used to calculate your income. As an example let’s use 100k with a premium bonus of 8% since many companies offer an upfront bonus. In this case we are using a premium bonus meaning the 8% bonus is actually added to your contract value or death benefit from day one. This is important to remember since many insurance companies only add the bonus to the income account value which is a value only used to calculate your income. So using 100k as your initial premium your contract value and your income account value both start at $108,000.00.
The contract value is linked to the index and all gains based on the indexing strategy you choose are locked in on the contract anniversary date each year. All the gains are locked in so once locked in they can’t go back down.

The income account value if you choose a rider moves up based on an interest rate. So for example using 100k plus the 8% bonus= $108,000 and using a rider that compound’s the IAV at 6% by year 5 you would have $144,536.39 in your income account value. Now if your contract value by year 5 was worth 125k then your income if turned on would be based on the income account value which is the higher of the two values.

The pro about this contract is safety of principle, being linked to an index that out performs inflation, income for life (can cover two lives) and grows tax deferred, gains are locked in annually. The con on this contract is limited access usually 10% of the contract value without a surrender charge during the surrender period. If you’re buying this annuity for income then the surrender period means nothing since you are taking income and not looking for a lump sum. The income is fixed once turned on though there are FIA’s out there where the income actually moves up with the index after turned on. Remember that the contract value is also the death benefit which bypasses probate like a trust does.

Single Premium Immediate Annuity or (SPIA)

If you’re someone who needs income immediately then this type of annuity might make sense. A SPIA uses a payout percentage not an interest rate. So basically its payout of your own money with a very small interest rate built in. There are many ways of taking income from a SPIA for example, Life Only, Life with Period Certain, and Cash Refund.

Life only option is usually the highest payout for a reason. With this option if the annuitant dies the insurance company keeps whatever the balance is left no matter how long into the contract. If there are no intentions of leaving anything for a beneficiary and there is an income need that must be met or if there is already a life insurance policy in place covering the value of the annuity then this might make sense.

Life with Period Certain means that during the period certain if the annuitant dies whatever has not been paid out to the annuitant gets paid to a beneficiary.

For example if you choose a SPIA with life with 10 years period certain during the 10 year period certain if you passed away the remaining balance would be paid to a beneficiary. The income would continue for life if you live pass the 10 year period certain but there would be nothing left in the contract after the 10 years for a beneficiary.

Cash refund option just means whatever has not yet been paid out to the annuitant upon death will be paid to the beneficiary.

Variable annuities or (VA’s) are actually considered a security unlike a fixed indexed annuity which are considered an insurance contract. With a VA your income is based on the original investment or greater but your death benefit is the contract value which can go up or down. The con’s on this type of contract are, very high fee’s which can be a drag on performance, and risk to principal.

Intermountain Precision Genomics Expands Gene Panel to Deliver Personalized Medicine

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, January 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Intermountain Precision Genomics announced today the expansion of the ICG100™ to include 162 genes. The ICG100™ Comprehensive Gene Panel tests 162 genes often associated in cancer pathways. Currently approved for late stage cancer patients who have failed a traditional treatment method, the ICG100™ test offers new hope where traditional modalities fall short.

According to Intermountain Precision Genomics Core Laboratory Manager, David Loughmiller, “The expansion of the ICG100™ Comprehensive Gene Panel allows us to advance the capabilities of treating acute leukemia and myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). Another advancement is the ability to reduce the amount of DNA needed to perform the test.” Loughmiller adds, “Lower input allows us to accept more samples from smaller biopsies. As we hone our research competencies and data pipelines in the laboratory, we are better able to impact lives and serve more patients.”

The ICG100™ process includes an in-depth analysis of gene sequencing. The test identifies mutations at a genomic level, and then targets existing mutations with a personalized therapy. Research has shown that targeted therapies can extend life and improve quality of life for patients battling late stage cancers. Intermountain Healthcare oncologists have direct access to the Intermountain Precision Genomics Core Laboratory through their provider login. Outside of Intermountain Healthcare, physicians can visit precisioncaner.org to create an online ordering portal.

Intermountain Precision Genomics is a service of Intermountain Healthcare, which offers genetic sequencing of solid tumors. This in-depth sequencing identifies individual mutations within a person’s cancer cells to identify specific DNA targets for personalized drugs.
