By KimGeiger
President Obama has signed into
law the most sweeping healthcare
overhaul in generations.
QUESTION: Now that the bill is law,
how do I sign up for my new insurance?
ANSWER: Although there are some
provisions that take effect in 2010
— such as bans on lifetime limits and
the denial of coverage to children with
pre-existing conditions — the part of the
bill that provides new insurance options
does not take effect until 2014.
By then states will have created
insurance exchanges, possibly online,
where people who don’t get insurance
from an employer or the government will
be able to shop for policies that meet
federal standards.
The policies sold on exchanges will be
regulated by state and federal authorities
and will be subsidized for many low- and
middle-income Americans.
QUESTION: What’s to stop my insurer
from raising my rates between now and
2014?
ANSWER: Under the new law, states
and the federal government must create
a process for reviewing rate increases
starting with plans issued in 2010.
Although this would not prevent
insurers from raising rates in all cases,
it is designed to discourage them from
making unreasonable increases.
Unreasonably high increases could
prompt state authorities to exclude
those plans from the
insurance exchanges
when they
open in 2014.
QUESTION: I have prescription drug
coverage under Medicare and will be
hitting the“doughnut hole” pretty soon.
What will the bill do to help me pay for
my drugs?
ANSWER: Under the Medicare Part
D program, seniors pay 25 percent of
their drug costs up to a yearly limit of
$2,830. After that they must pay 100
percent of the costs until their out-of-
pocket total reaches $4,550, at which
point catastrophic coverage kicks in and
seniors pay just 5 percent of the cost for
the rest of the year.
The difference between the yearly
limit and the point where catastrophic
coverage kicks in is called the“doughnut
hole.”
In 2010, seniors who reach the
coverage gap will be eligible for a $250
rebate.
Starting in 2011, the government
and pharmaceutical makers will begin
phasing in subsidies and discounts
on brand-name and generic drugs
purchased in the gap.
By 2020, this program will have
eliminated the gap entirely by covering
75 percent of seniors’ drug costs up to
the catastrophic coverage limit.
QUESTION: I have a great insurance
policy through my employer and I don’t
want it to change. What’s this I hear
about taxing my plan?
ANSWER: Democrats proposed
bringing down healthcare costs by
taxing“Cadillac plans” — high-cost
coverage plans provided by employers.
Because employer-sponsored health
benefits are not taxed, employers
currently have an incentive to provide
benefit increases rather than wage
increases.
The“Cadillac tax” — which takes
effect in 2018 — will cap the tax-free
status of health benefits.
Insurers will pay 40 cents on every
dollar they charge above $10,200 for
individual coverage and $27,500 for
family coverage.

Information Services.

Elite athletes turn
to chiropractic for
more than pain relief
The Winter Olympic Games inVancouver, British Columbia,
were fun to watch. But there were some painful moments as
well. You probably winced every time a skier lost control while
speeding down the slopes. Or let out a yelp when an ice skater
failed to land a jump and crashed to the ice.
Because you don’t attempt Triple Axels or race down icy
mountains at high speeds, you might not think you have
anything common with the elite athletes who competed in this
year’s Olympic games.
But if you’re seeing a chiropractor for aches and pains from
training for a local marathon or lifting your grandchild, you’re
more alike than you think.
Doctors of chiropractic play an important role in helping
Olympic and professional athletes prepare for competition and
recover frominjuries. In fact, their visibility on the U.S. Olympic
Committee’s medical staff has increased steadily over the years.
“We took five chiropractors [to the Olympic Games this year]
and that just shows howfar chiropractic has come since the first
chiropractor joined the Olympic medical staff in 1980,”says Dr.
Michael Reed, a doctor of chiropractic who serves as a USOC
medical director. “It has a lot to do with the requests of the
athletes —they recognize the benefits of chiropractic in helping
their bodies performat peak condition.”
“There is an increasing demand for the expert care of
doctors of chiropractic by athletes of all levels,”confirms
Dr. Rick McMichael,
president of the American
Chiropractic Association.
“But chiropractic’s unique,
drug-free approach can also
help members of the general
public enhance their health
and wellness.
“In addition to the use
of spinal manipulation and
other manual therapies, DCs
offer patients exercise and
dietary recommendations,
ergonomic tips and
rehabilitative procedures —a
full package of conservative,
nonsurgical interventions,”
he adds.
Surprisingly, treating a nonathlete with aches and pains is very
similar to treating an Olympian, says Dr. Ted Forcumof Beaverton,
Ore., president of the ACA’s Sports Council. Forcumserved on the
USOC medical teamin 2008.
“(As with Olympic and professional athletes,) it’s important
to ask patients what their goals for treatment are,”Forcumsays.
“Is their goal just to be out of pain, or is their goal to function at
a higher level? In most cases, chiropractors treat elite athletes to
help optimize performance, not to treat an injury.”
With the rise in popularity of complementary and alternative
medicine and today’s emphasis on going green, many also
appreciate the option for care that is drug-free. Chiropractic
offers a natural approach to back pain, neck pain, headaches and
the myriad aches and strains that result fromleading an active
life.
Even if you aren’t training for a marathon or thinking about
competing in a future Olympic games, you might discover that
a chiropractor can assist you in strengthening your muscles or
joints, alleviating your headache or preventing your knees from
aching.

Foods that
help your heart
Take control of your
health by adopting
food and lifestyle
changes. Eating sensibly with
some modifications, as well as
exercising, can keep your heart
strong and healthy. Follow
some of our suggestions below
and your heart will love you
for it.
Eat fruits and vegetables
Not only are fruits and vegetables high in vitamins, minerals and
fiber, they’re also very low in calories and high in antioxidants,
which can help prevent chronic disease.
Go for omega-3 fatty acids
Research has shown that omega-3s lower triglycerides (fat in
the blood), help maintain the“good” cholesterol and decrease
the risk of sudden heart attacks, blood clots and stroke. These
compounds are found in fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, herring,
sardines) and plant foods (flax seeds, walnuts).
Get moving
Extra pounds and inactivity can put stress on the heart
and create other health problems. Exercise is key to weight
management. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise
a day.
Focus on fiber
Fiber refers to the indigestible carbohydrates we eat and is
found in fruits, vegetables and unrefined grains. It keeps the
body’s digestive system
running smoothly and helps
the body feel full, a key to
weight management.
Go for low-fat dairy
To reduce the amount of
saturated fat and calories in
your diet, replace high-fat dairy
products (such as whole milk,
cheese, sour cream and cream
cheese) with skim or 1 percent milk, low-fat yogurt, Neufchatel
and low-fat cheeses.
Watch sodiumintake
Sodium can raise blood pressure. The largest portion of sodium
in Americans’ diets comes from processed foods. By cooking
fresh food at home, you can cut back on sodium dramatically.
Eat the right fats
Cut back on saturated fats (found in meats and full-fat dairy
products) and avoid trans fats (found in some commercially
baked goods and fried foods, and listed on labels as partially-
hydrogenated).
Have some wine
Alcohol in wine, beer and distilled spirits has been shown
to protect the heart in some studies by increasing HDL, or
“good,” cholesterol. Additionally, heart-healthy polyphenols
(antioxidants) occur in both red and white wine.

Three myths
about hearing loss
Hearing loss is one of the most common conditions in the
world. Yet there are a number of misperceptions about hearing
loss which lead many to let it go untreated.
The Better Hearing Institute found that only 4 in 10 people
with moderate-to-severe hearing loss use hearing aids. Many
waited nearly seven years after they initially learned about their
hearing loss to obtain a hearing aid, and that was after they’d lost
so much hearing that their quality of life was affected. Hearing
loss can create social and emotional barriers for the individuals
living with it, or the families of those it affects. Research shows
that when left untreated, hearing loss can lead to reduced
earning power, disruptions in family life and can cause a wide
range of other psychological problems.
According to a survey conducted by Hear the World,
frustration (46.8 percent), isolation (45.3 percent) and fear (36.8
percent) were the feelings most often associated with untreated
hearing loss.
“What I see in my practice is that the unnecessary fear and
frustration associated with hearing loss and hearing aids is often
accompanied by a lack of information about ways to prevent or
solutions available to treat the condition,”said Dr. Craig Kasper of
Audio Help Associates of Manhattan. “This is unfortunate given
that hearing loss is a condition that can be treated with great
benefit for the individual, as well as for society.”
Myth: Hearing loss only affects the elderly
Fact: Only 35 percent of people with hearing loss are over
age 64. In fact, it affects all age groups.
• The number of Americans with hearing loss has grown
to more than 34 million —roughly 11 percent of the U.S.
population.
• In the United States, more than one million school-aged
children have hearing problems.
• According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 26
million Americans have high-frequency hearing loss that may
have been caused by exposure to loud noise at work or in leisure
activities.
Activities that put people at risk for noise-induced hearing
loss include target shooting, hunting, snowmobile riding,
woodworking and other hobbies, playing in a band and
attending rock concerts. Harmful noises at home may come
fromlawnmowers, leaf blowers, and shop tools.
Myth: If I have a hearing loss, my doctor would have told me.
Fact: According to the Better Hearing Institute, only 15
percent of physicians routinely screen for hearing loss during a
physical. And without special training, it may be difficult for your
doctor to realize the extent of your hearing problem.
Do you:
• Have trouble hearing over the telephone?
• Often ask people to repeat what they are saying?
• Find it hard to followconversations when two or more
people are talking?
• Think that others seemto mumble?
• Have a problemhearing because of background noise?
• Have trouble understanding when women and children
speak to you?
If you answered yes to three or more of these questions, visit
a hearing healthcare professional and get properly tested.
Myth: Hearing aids are big and uncomfortable.
Fact: Hearing aid design and technology has developed
significantly in recent years.
“Hearing loss and the solutions available to treat it have long
been misunderstood,” said Kasper. “Hearing aids have come a
long way and it is important to the well-being of those with
hearing loss that these misperceptions be addressed. In fact,
recent technology advances have made it possible for those
who need a hearing aid to wear their devices with ease and
confidence.”
Today’s hearing aids work with digital technology and are
equipped with powerful computer chips, ensuring better sound
quality, wireless connectivity, modern design and ever smaller
dimensions to help users wear their hearing aids with minimal
detection.
Good hearing plays a crucial part in quality of life. Don’t let
myths about hearing loss keep you fromenjoying what life has
to offer.

The
importance
of managing
diabetes
medication
Nearly 24 million Americans have
diabetes, and as most people with diabetes
know, fluctuating levels of sugar in the
bloodstream can be dangerous. Because
many people with diabetes also have
other conditions, like high blood pressure
and high cholesterol, they often need to
manage multiple medications.
CVS Pharmacist, Paul Magno, answers
questions about diabetes treatment and
how managing medications can lead to a
healthier life.
QUESTION: What medications are
commonly used to treat diabetes?
ANSWER: Medications used to treat
diabetes include insulin and glucose-
lowering pills. People with Type 1 diabetes,
which typically begins in childhood, cannot
make their own insulin, so daily insulin
injections are needed.
Type 2 diabetes, which typically begins
in adulthood and is the most common form
of diabetes, may respond to treatment
with diet and exercise, as well as glucose-
lowering pills and insulin. Different groups
of oral medications are often combined
or used along with insulin. No single type
of medication works for all patients, so
you should work with your doctor and
pharmacist to find a diabetes medication
regimen that fits your needs.
QUESTION: Why is managing
medications especially important for people
with diabetes?
ANSWER: Diabetes is a leading cause
of death in the United States. Keeping your
blood glucose in the recommended target
range can prevent or delay the long-term
health problems caused by the disease.
Maintaining your medication, whether it is
insulin injections or oral medications, along
with exercise and a healthy diet, is critical to
treating diabetes effectively and living well
with the disease.
QUESTION: Is there any danger
of interactions when taking diabetes
medications?
ANSWER: Most people with
Type 2 diabetes take oral medications or a
combination of oral medications and insulin
injections. In general, diabetes treatments
are safe and effective. But like other drugs,
they must be used with care, and you
should always talk to your pharmacist about
all the medications you are taking before
you begin any new medication or over-the-
counter treatment.
QUESTION: Are there any additional
guidelines for taking diabetes medication?
ANSWER: Many diabetes medications
should be taken at certain times of the
day. For example, some work best if they
are taken 30 minutes before a meal, while
others should be taken with the first bite
of a meal. These are important details to
know, so remember to consult with your
pharmacist about when to take your specific
medications in order to assure the best
efficacy.
Taking the right pills at the right times
in the right doses can be a difficult task,
so it’s important to get organized. A pill
organizer can be a handy way to keep track
of medications. Once you are organized
and have incorporated your medications
into your daily routine, it’ll be easier to
remember to take them.

New
options
point
away
from
needles
By Lee Bowman
The injection. The jab. A little pinch.
Even“this won’t hurt a bit”shots tend to
leave many people squeamish.
Studies have found that up to 10
percent of U.S. adults are so frightened
of needles that they’ll avoid getting any
medical treatment that might require
getting a shot.
But scientists and drug companies are
moving rapidly ahead with several new
technologies that aimto deliver vaccines
and other therapies needle-free.
One of the favored approaches is the
inhalable vaccine, which has been around
as a weakened live vaccine against the flu
—FluMist —for some time.
Researchers at the University of
Colorado at Boulder have developed a
prototype for a newgeneration of inhaled
vaccines based in part on studies that
were originally done to understand how
people inhale tiny airborne droplets of air
pollution.
Beyond eliminating needles and the
risks of infection associated with them,
the newinhalant systemalso offers a dry
vaccine that doesn’t require refrigeration
or other special handling. For measles, it
can be made at a cost of about 26 cents
per dose —about the same as for an
injectable dose.
Another dry-powder system, developed
by the Connecticut-based MannKind
Corp., has proved effective at delivering an
ultra-fast-acting dose of insulin through
the lungs, rather than by injection, giving
some diabetics a near-natural rush of the
hormone similar to that experienced by
non-diabetics immediately after a meal.
Another Colorado enterprise, a
company called Pharmajet, has developed
another no-needle technology that
actually uses spring-loaded pressure to
inject vaccine through the skin. A small
plastic cylinder full of vaccine does not
look like a needle, although there’s still a
tiny sting fromthe serumgoing through
the skin.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration
approved the systemin 2009 in time to
be used to deliver seasonal-flu shots in
Colorado and NewJersey the fall.
Several groups of researchers and
companies are also working toward
vaccine-patch delivery systems that would
carry active ingredients through the skin
using small particles.
One group, at the University of
Michigan, has designed a protein than can
carry vaccine through cell membranes into
the interior of cells, particularly immune
cells just under the skin. Tests on mice
have achieved activation of the immune
systemequal to that brought about by
conventional vaccines.
Scientists at Queensland University
in Australia have been working on a
“nanopatch”vaccine that utilizes tiny
projections —to small to feel —that
nonetheless penetrate the skin deeply
enough to activate those same immune
cells. They’re still testing with mice, but
say one advantage of the systemis that it
can achieve the same level of immunity
as shots, using about 100 times less actual
vaccine.

News Service.)

Most people recognize the link
between what they eat and their physical
health. But many don’t know that there
is a link between what they eat and their
mood. Literally, says Elizabeth Somer,
M.A.,R.D., what you eat or don’t eat for
breakfast can have an effect on your
happiness quotient by afternoon.
The effects also are cumulative: eat the
right foods for months, years, decades
and you will be that much happier and
mentally sharp in the years to come. In
short, follow these tips that come from,
“Eat Your Way to Happiness,” the latest
book by Somer, and she promises you will
say, “I never knew I could feel this good!”
Feel Good Tip #1: Eat breakfast
People who eat breakfast have more
energy, a more sustained good mood,
they perform better at school and at
work, and they sleep better at night.
They also are less prone to food cravings,
have an easier time losing weight and
maintaining the weight loss. But, Somer
is not talking doughnuts and coffee. You
must follow the 1,2,3 rule. The breakfast
must have:
1) a whole grain to provide needed
high-quality carbs for the brain during the
morning hours
2) a little protein to keep you satiated
and maintain even blood sugar levels
throughout the morning
3) one, preferably two, colorful fruits
and vegetables.
Somer’s favorite is as a bowl of
whole-grain cereal topped with berries
and low-fat milk, and served with sliced
| 
The
Happy
Diet
watermelon. Or, a morning smoothie
made with watermelon, lemon yogurt,
and dash of ground ginger, served with
whole-grain raisin bread.
Feel Good Tip #2:
Keep lunch light and low-fat
Not only will a heavy lunch leave you
groggy, but eat too much fat midday
and it turns on a brain chemical, called
galanin. According to research from
Rockefeller University, the more fat we
eat, the more galanin we produce. People
who eat a fatty lunch are likely to eat
more calories later in the day compared
to someone who eats a low-fat lunch. You
definitely need some fat, like the healthy
fats in nuts and olive oil and the omega-3
fats, but don’t go overboard.
A light, low-fat meal helps you stay
alert through the afternoon hours, boosts
energy, and fills you up without filling
you out. An example would be a turkey
breast sandwich on whole wheat piled
high with spinach leaves and served with
a glass of low-fat milk and a fruit salad or
watermelon, orange slices and pineapple.
Feel Good Tip #3: Include super mood foods
Somer says that it is a style of eating,
not just a few foods, that will stack the
deck in favor of feeling great. The 10
secrets of happy people discussed in her
book include habits, such as focusing
on“real foods” not processed ones,
cutting back on the quick fixes, and
keeping meals light. If you are following
those guidelines, then adding super
mood foods gives you an even greater
nutritional bang for your buck.
Super mood foods are ones loaded
with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and
antioxidant-rich phytonutrients, while
being moderate in calories.
A perfect example is watermelon,
which is higher in lycopene than are
tomatoes, and is an excellent source
of vitamins A, B6, and C. Better yet,
watermelon is 92 percent water, which
means it is a natural hydrator, and it
contains two amino acids, citrulline and
arginine that maintain blood vessels in
the body.
