Author Adah Kennon Ph.D. to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Adah F. Kennon worked for 30 years plus as a top notch school psychologist and counselor. She is the owner of Sheba Enterprises, the author of Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? and creator of www.247lightheartedcaregivers.com. She holds four advanced degrees including a Ph.D. and three Master’s Degrees in psychology, education and counseling.

Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? is a survival manual and a self-empowerment tool. “My husband was tragically stricken with kidney disease,” says Dr. Kennon. “ I never had to take care of anyone on this level. Suddenly due to medical errors my husband became ill and my life totally changed. New issues surfaced daily, and I realized that there wasn’t anything suitable to address my unique responsibilities as a caregiver. So I decided to take control of my situation and to assist others by sharing what I learned.”

“The most critical issue facing us was how to get access to life-saving prescription medication,” says Dr. Kennon.

Encouraged by her husband, Dr. Kennon wrote her book out of anger and frustration with big pharma, the healthcare industry and the federal government. Her husband is an 88-year-old WWII and Korean War honorably retired African American Army veteran. He enlisted in 1948 and was promised free health care. Instead he became the victim of bait and switch when that promise was broken. The book chronicles their journey to overcome the prior authorization process. Readers learn how this happened and how they fought back.

“Health Care is the number one issue in America,” says Dr. Kennon. “ No one can argue the benefit of low health care costs and having a lot of heath care plans to choose from. But what difference does it make if in your hour of need you don’t get what you thought you paid for. Most people know more about the details of their grocery lists than they do about the fine print in their health insurance plans. And to make matters worse, distractions are being used to keep people ignorant of what they really need to know. That worries me, because I know what this can do to the quality of a person’s life.”

“There are some good health insurance plans out there. However, my book presents strategies to counter the misuse and abuse of the prior authorization process by those using it to further their profit and not patient welfare.”

Her website and blog are designed to empower caregivers by sharing knowledge and encouragement.

“I have had tremendous response,” says Dr. Kennon. “ In fact, my book was profiled in “The ROCKET Newsletter” (Summer 2018), a publication of The ROCKS, Inc. which is the premiere and largest professional military officers’ organization for Army Officers, Warrant Officers and Department of the Army Civilians.”

Patient or Profit: Where is the Love? Is available via the author website (complementary autograph included), and Amazon.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Adah Kennon in an interview with Jim Masters on Monday January 21st at 3 p.m. EST.

Suicide Assessments Linked to Possible Increase in Suicide Risk

Antidepressants Kill

CCHR launches campaign to raise awareness on the plausible link between suicides, the reliance on suicide risk assessments and the use of antidepressants.

With 1 in 6 Americans currently taking psychotropic drugs it is vital for people to know the truth about suicide risk assessments and psychiatric drug side effects.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FL, USA, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) of Florida, a non-profit mental health watchdog that exposes human rights violations and helps to enact consumer protections, is holding an open house this month at their center located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater to raise awareness on the subject of the possible link between suicides and the reliance on suicide risk assessments and antidepressant use.

Each year an average of 44,965 people take their own life in the United States making it the 10th leading cause of death for Americans. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide deaths were more than double those due to homicides in 2015, which means that for every murder reported in the news, there were at least 2 other deaths that occurred due to suicide. [1] [2] [3]

In response, CCHR Florida launched a campaign to educate individuals on the connection between the use of antidepressants, the reliance on suicide risk assessments and death by suicide. As part of this campaign CCHR is hosting an open house where visitors will be able to obtain information on how suicide risk assessments may increase the risk of suicide, psychiatric drug side effects and alternative solutions.

An article published under Mental Health in Scientific American in March of 2017, reported that new research of the past 40 years of suicide risk assessments research suggests that not only do these assessments not help but may actually cause harm by increasing the risk of suicide. [4] [5]

According to the article, “there has been no improvement in the accuracy of suicide risk assessments over the past 40 years” and “no statistical way of identifying individuals with a high risk of suicide exists.”

Using these ineffective suicide risk assessment, individuals are labeled with depression or suicidal ideation and then in many cases receive prescriptions for dangerous psychotropic drugs which come with known side effects that encourage the exact symptoms they are marketed to treat, suicide and suicidal ideation. One common antidepressant, Celexa, is linked to a staggering 559 cases of documented suicide. [6]

“With 1 in 6 Americans currently taking psychotropic drugs it is vital for people to know the truth about suicide risk assessments and psychiatric drug side effects,” said Diane Stein, president of the Florida chapter of CCHR. [7]

For more information on the open house, the truth about psychiatric drugs or for information on alternative solutions please call 727-442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Why Cash Rides are Bad for Uber or Lyft Drivers with TLC Leasing

For Uber or Lyft drivers who drive their own vehicles or use TLC car leasing, taking cash is a bad idea for keeping your business running

For Uber or Lyft drivers who drive their own vehicles or use TLC car leasing, taking cash is a bad idea for keeping your business running”

— Friendly, www.FriendlyTLC.com

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — For those who have been using their own vehicles or rent a TLC car for Uber or Lyft business, there have probably been occasions when a passenger will offer cash for a ride. Perhaps it’s a friend or relative or someone who doesn’t have a way to pay on the app, but in all cases your answer should be a resounding no.

Called Back Door Ubering, the practice of taking cash for drivers who use TLC car leasing or perhaps own their own vehicle is quite common. In fact, many are taking cash on a daily basis, especially in light of the new Upfront Pricing that has been put into place. Admittedly, there are subtle benefits from taking cash for both drivers and passengers since they get to earn or save a little more money.

However, there are good reasons why you should never accept cash from a passenger, especially in light of the strict rules that Uber and Lyft have put into place.

Deactivation: If you are caught taking a cash ride, Uber and Lyft will most likely deactivate you and your business with them is over. All it takes is one report and that may be enough to remove you from Uber or Lyft.

No Insurance: Another, perhaps even better reason why cash rides should be avoided is that the passenger is not covered by Uber and Lyft’s million-dollar liability insurance. So, if an accident happens and your passenger is injured, you can be left holding the medical bill. You might be covered by the insurance and you have a small amount of out-of-pocket expenses that Uber and Lyft provide, but that is nowhere near enough to cover a substantial injury to a passenger.

Basically, there is no easy way out if an accident should occur with a passenger paying cash. Using the Uber or Lyft app means that they are covered as they are registered in the system. About the only way you are covered is if you have full commercial coverage insurance which is the most expensive you can purchase. Few people have such coverage for obvious reasons, mostly because of rideshare coverage.

However, rideshare coverage does not protect you in case of an accident when the passenger is injured. Lying to your insurance company about the situation is a non-starter as well since if they find out, they will cancel your coverage. Plus, it is insurance fraud which is a felony.

The danger for Uber or Lyft driver using TLC leasing or their own vehicles is that the temptation for cash rides is strong given how accidents are infrequent. Just remember that the chances of an accident happening are the same each time you drive, so the best move for those who use their own vehicles or take advantage of TLC car leasing is to not accept cash rides at all.

Health Care Transformation Task Force Releases Clinical Episode Model Resources for Commercial Payers

Essential Bundled Payment Design Elements

New Tools Support Payers and Providers in Establishing Commercial Value Contracts

Clinical episode value models are common in both Medicare and several state Medicaid programs. A significant opportunity for uptake of these models in commercial markets remains.”

— Jeff Micklos, Executive Director, HCTTF

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF or Task Force), a group of leading health care payers, providers, purchasers and patient organizations, today released a set of resources to support effective implementation of clinical episode models in the commercial market.

“These tools will help to simplify the process for payers and providers to develop bundled payment arrangements to drive high-quality, patient-centered specialty care for their patients,” said Dave Terry, CEO of Archway Health and co-chair of the Task Force’s Advanced Payer/Provider Partnerships Work Group. “The promising results from bundled payment initiatives in the Medicare program demonstrate that there is significant potential for clinical episode models to drive cost savings and quality improvements in the commercial market.”

The new whitepaper, Episode Groupers: Key Considerations for Implementing Clinical Episode Models, examines the role of episode groupers within the context of clinical episode payments and offers a framework for decision makers to assess various options. The Task Force also released a new contracting guidance document, Clinical Episode Contracting for Commercial Payers, to support payers and providers in launching commercial-sector clinical episode payment arrangements.

“Clinical episode value models are common in both Medicare and several state Medicaid programs,” said Jeff Micklos, Executive Director of the Task Force. “A significant opportunity for uptake of these models in commercial markets remains.”

“We see bundled payments as a crucial mechanism to engage specialists in value-based care delivery,” said Erin Smith, Director of Payment Innovation at Anthem, Inc. “Working from a common framework of essential bundled payment design elements helps us in establishing strong relationships with our provider partners.”

The development of these resources was overseen by the HCTTF Advanced/Payer Provider Partnerships Work Group, which serves as a forum for vanguard organizations to discuss the “future state” needs for value-based payment arrangements and share lessons learned by organizations trying to scale advanced payment models.

The resources build upon the bundled payment framework developed by the Health Care Payment Learning and Action Network to provide implementation-focused design elements and operational considerations for episode payment models to succeed.

IRS Changes Cellphone Deduction Laws, mobilityView the Only Way to Comply Says America's Leading Tax Planning Expert

mobilityView recommended in the 2019, 36th edition, of Jeff A. Schnepper ‘s bestselling book, ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Toronto, 14th January 2019 – Jeff A. Schnepper (Cherry Hill, NJ) – America’s leading, if not number one, tax planning expert for the last 35 years is recommending that every employer and employee in the USA use mobilityView’s Mobile Cost Management (MCM) solution.

Jeff’s book ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’ is now in its 36th edition and is a testament not only to his stature and expertise in the USA, but also to the popularity of his book. For over three decades ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’ has helped business owners and employees save money on their taxes. In all this time Jeff has not seen a solution, such as mobilityView’s, capable of tracking every call, text message and data byte in real-time, delivering detailed tax compliant reports showing business / personal usage and cost calculations.

“Effective January 1st 2018 there have been significant changes to the Tax Code that affect every employee and employer in the country. A solution like mobilityView is the best tool that can keep employers and employees tax compliant as it pertains to the specific changes in the Tax Code around cellphone and portable computer deductions. I was so impressed that they are featured in the 36th edition of my best selling book ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’,” said Jeff Schnepper.

With many individuals and companies still unaware of the tax exposure with respect to their cellphones, mobilityView CEO, Thom Damstra, provides some timely advice in managing this issue, “Global tax authorities have for years required employers and employees to keep a mileage book for the personal use of a corporately provided automobile (corporate provided asset / car) and / or the business usage of a personal automobile (bring your own asset / car). Effective January 1st 2018 the IRS (Internal Revenue Service) now requires a mileage book for the cellphone and wireless subscription plan. Business and personal usage is required to be documented and substantiated for every call, sms, and packet of data. The new IRS requirement applies in ALL scenarios including:

• Corporate paid cellphone and / or wireless subscription plan
• Employee provided cellphone and / or wireless subscription plan with reimbursement via a Stipend (monthly allowance, defined by the employer, and paid to the employee for business use of a cellphone), full expense reimbursement or partial expense reimbursement

All the following wireless deployment strategies, used by employers, are affected by the new changes from the IRS:

• COPE (Company Owned/Personally Enabled)
• COBO (Company Owned/Business Only)
• COLD (Corporately Owned Locked Down)
• CYOD (Choose Your Own Device)
• BYOD (Bring Your Own Device)
• BYOO (Bring Your Own Operator)
• Stipend (monthly allowance, defined by the employer, and paid to the employee for business use of a cellphone).”

Consider purchasing ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’ by Jeff Schnepper to obtain a 60 day free trial, and a special purchase discount, for mobilityView’s MCM (Mobile Cost Management) cloud service, which can track usage & cost to the penny – all calls, text messages and data – and automatically creates detailed tax compliant reports showing business / personal usage and cost calculations.

The MCM Platform by mobilityView is a cloud service that enables individuals to properly account for the business and personal usage and cost of a mobile smart device (smartphone, tablet, phablet, etc.). The technology has been patented in the USA (and in 3 continents) and is patents pending in over 83 other countries. The tool is great for any individual to automate their mobile smart device expense claim process for economic reimbursement and accounts for voice, SMS, data and roaming scenarios. The solution is also highly applicable for businesses of any size, seeking to only pay for business usage of mobile assets. It provides a complete view of all mobile costs, previously not thought possible.

Employers can sleep at night knowing that their costs are contained and employees can experience mobile democracy – they are freed up to do whatever they want on their mobile device: Play video games, watch movies; engage in social media with utter privacy. “The MCM Platform provides clear unequivocal and immediate return on investment for businesses of any size”, said Thom Damstra, CEO of mobilityView. “The flexibility of the platform opens up the tantalizing possibilities to simultaneously reduce cost, provide new flexi benefits, and increase the usage of mobility within any organization. Until now these three simultaneous benefits have been impossible to deliver.”

About Jeff A. Schnepper

Jeff A. Schnepper (Cherry Hill, NJ) is the author of multiple books on finance and taxation, including all previous editions of ‘How to Pay Zero Taxes’. He is a financial, tax, and legal advisor for Estate Planning of Delaware Valley and operates a tax, accounting, and legal practice in Cherry Hill, NJ.
