My mother went to the emergency hospital last year and was billed a hefty amount. She was covered with health insurance from her company (Destiny) and the hospital was "in-network". The insurance company paid the hospital fee (which was the larger amount) but only paid about half the physician fee because the physician was "out-of-network". My mother asked whether or not the physician was in-network or out-of-network when she was in the hospital and the nurse just told her not to worry about it. My questions are, 'How can a hospital be in-network and fully covered but assign her an out-of-network physician which won't be fully covered under the insurance?' and 'Is there anything she can do about this? I don't think it's fair she has to pay for something she didn't have a choice in'.

The Common Involuntary Shudder

Many years ago someone told me the recognised term for the kind of involuntary shudder that commonly affects people at rest. You know the kind that spontaneously rocks you, just for a moment, like you are shaking off the ghoulies, like the cliche says 'someone was walking on your grave'? I have since lost this word to time, and searching the internet has brought only partial results. Does anyone know it?

How can I improve my sleep with drugs?

My sleep schedule is very hectic. While I almost always have to get up early, I frequently have to stay up very late to complete projects or have at least a few hours to spend with friends. I try and use the weekends to catch up on sleep, and I have many tricks to haul myself out of bed in the mornings but I was wondering if anyone might know a relatively safe combination of drugs that would not only help me quickly fall asleep but also wake up quickly if I haven't gotten my "full" 8 hours of sleep?

As a man, is there any way I can use my health insurance to pay for birth control pills?

As a man, is there any way I can use my health insurance to pay for birth control pills? If not, what are my other options? [more inside]

Potassium doses

Why do supplements with potassium often contain relatively low amounts of potassium? A common per-capsule dosage is 99mg, which is only 3% of the USRDA. Multi-minerals often contain impressive doses of other mins, but not of K.

bad kitty

Last week my wife put one of those toilet cleaning puck things - 2 discs, one blue and one white (a type of chlorine bleach, I think) in the toilet tank. Apparently one of us or our houseguest left the toilet open and one of our two cats - the stupid one - drank a quantity of the water, even though he had a big bowl of fresh water by his food (yes, we're now being very careful to leave it closed). My questions: 1) did he drink it because it tasted good, the way some animals will eat antifreeze, and 2) is he gonna be OK? He's acting a little odd - staring at his own shadow and attacking invisible things, growling at nothing, but then again he's kind of brain-damaged anyway (flea anemia as a feral kitten). He's 9 yrs old and otherwise in good health.

Does anyone have info. on health advocates

I have seen friends and relatives become ill and not know exactly where to go or what to do. Obviously a doctor is a good choice. But when a person has a fatal disease that requires research to make a right decision and dealing with insurance companies, etc., etc. Are there health advocates that one can contact that can be trusted? Are they paid for through health insurance and are they impartial in that they will help you make your own choices?
