Doctor Offers Help in Weight Loss Challenge

11:00 PM Posted by exclusiveMD

Check out this recent video featuring myself and contestant Kurt Kloeblen where we talk about my current involvement with the Kansas City Weight Loss Challenge. We are currently in round 5 of this weight loss challenge which is structured similarly to the show "The Biggest Loser." All the contestants are battling it out over 12 weeks with the help of local trainers and nutritionists to help them win. My role for my first challenge is to provide a medical assessment pre-competition and to serve as a general resource for nutrition and health throughout the contest. Thankfully, due to our friends at Any Lab Test Now!, all of the contestants were given a free lab screening pre and post to see how their weight has truly affected their health. Any Lab Test Now! is a medical lab testing facility in Lee's Summit, MO that gives consumers direct access to be able to get their own labs without a doctor's order thus making this process more affordable and convenient (www.anylabtestnow.com). Every few weeks there will be video streamed through facebook giving updates on the contest so stay tuned! Good luck to all the contestants!

Self-Insured Premiums Jump by 20%

9:15 AM Posted by exclusiveMD

This was from a poll and survey from Kaiser of the self insured. This is what they found.
Three quarters of those people just faced a premium increase of 20% on average. The recent hikes have prompted the White House to say it will, "sternly warn industry executives" today that insurers shouldn't try to use the new health care law as an excuse to gouge customers, according to the New York Times.
See the survey.

What did we expect when our new law requires more coverage for more people. Health care is not free. We need to focus on changing the way health care is delivered to make it more efficient. Thousands of health care dollars are wasted because of the inefficiencies of the system.


Decisions of a Medical Student

10:28 AM Posted by exclusiveMD

If you have a moment to read about this personal account of a medical student choosing her field in medicine, I urge you to read it. This is a story that is hard to comprehend outside of medicine. This proves that although a passion for a certain field may be strong, a better balance of family and money typically overtakes. This by no means is a wrong decision, but rather the right decision for this particular person. If anything, this just shows us that the more demanding, less reimbursed positions in medicine have to be completely revamped if we want to have any hope in saving our health care system.
