Waste Management Services
Waste Management Services (Overview)
Waste management services help control waste and trash.
Not often: This has generally been legislated out of most plans although it was common in the past. Many plans, however, have time limitations so no coverage for many conditions including pregnancy for a period of 4-8 months after signing up to prevent people with no insurance or competing insurance from jumping into a new plan while already having a condition. ...Read more

Insurance co-pays: I cannot know about every state and every insurance company, but to the best of my knowledge yes. And why wouldn't they even if they were not required? Health care providers who participate in these plans are generally receiving less than their normal private fees anyway. ...Read more
It depends: Most people are able to lose weight with any kind of diet as long as they eat fewer calories than normal. Maintaining the weight loss is the really hard part. So if you're going to use a weight management clinic look for a program that helps you keep the weight off once you've lost it. It's very easy to go back to the way you used to eat and you'll need to make permanent changes in your diet. ...Read more
Home Health Care: House chores r not covered. Home health care is not covered by insurances unless pt. Came just out of the hospital, and usually has a limited number of days. With the breakup of the family ( families living far from another), families with less children, and women working, no one can take care of sick elderly. Then...

Massage: Chiropractors provide a deep, sometimes satisfying but occasionally dangerous, massage. They cannot diagnose and have no interest in cure as they want clients to come back again and again. Their disease theory has long ago been discredited but they are charismatic and convincing so patients continue to come back to them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very little, but...: The key to good health is to remove the fear, the anonymity, the loneliness, the isolation inherent in the settings one is in: most hospitals, most assisted living home, most nursing homes, most group homes, many doctor centers. The demise of the family unit and all the things inherent in that, are all on the rise. Home is where the heart is; we've lost our way. Can we find our metaphorical home? ...Read more

Some laws govern: In recent years, the government has passed laws that set rules for protecting personal health information.

Access for all: Unfortunately, our focus in the us is on treatment rather than prevention. However, accountable care organizations are designed to care for populations of patients rather than just hospital care. Therefore, it will be in everyone's best interest to keep people well and out of the hospital. Probably the most important part of the affordable care act is the provision for healthcare for all. ...Read more
Level of care: Honestly there is considerable variation from place to place about how this works. However if you want to get a sense of how things "ought" to work you should search for the "level of care and utilization system" of the american association of community psychiatrists. It is a bit complicated but covers the factors that determine medically appropriate residential care. ...Read more

Yes: The type of plan and level coverage that an insurance company sells through the Obamacare health insurance marketplaces should be the same quality plan as the company sells to people outside of the marketplace program.

Pay for them: Lots of practitioners of behavioral therapy are not covered with insurance and accept only direct pay. If that's not feasible, depending on the need, if this is for a child, the school may authorize and pay for behavioral services through an individualized education plan (iep). Also, if you meet criteria, public insurance (medicaid) may pay for such care. ...Read more
Portion control: I agree with dr. Valdez-small portions. In america, we often eat until we are 'full', while in other cultures one eats until about 70% full. Serve small portions of everything, with 'seconds' only after first servings are consumed. An age appropriate serving could be a single bite. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What should I do I don't have time to exercise my examination have been started and I like exercising but I am scared from wasting my time help plzz?
Short exercise break: You sound pretty stressed, and exams can definitely be a stressful time. Exercise actually helps reduce stress and improve concentration, so a brief (15-30 minute) break to work out once or twice a day may be just what you need to "reset" and get back into studying. Good luck with your exams! ...Read more

I spend almost 8 hours a day diagnosing myself. Am i wasting my time?? or should i wait till im 18?
No benefit...: I would suggest that spending 8 hours a day diagnosing yourself isn't a good idea at any age. Have you talked with your doctor or a therapist about how you are feeling? They can help you talk through your fears and create behavioral changes so that you can LIVE your life rather than working to find out if something is wrong with you. ...Read more
Do doctors on here read their "thank you notes"? I leave them when I have been helped, but not sure if wasting time!
I'm at the doctors every other week for one thing or another for which i feel i need medical attention. Worried doctors think i'm wasting their time?
Dont worry: Doctors should not feel that you are wasting their time. We are trained to understand that sometimes symptoms may be difficult to diagnose and sometimes the problem may be related to anxiety or stress and need therapy just the same. A stress or emotional problem is just as real and serious as diabetes. The job of the patient is to not get angry if this is the diagnosis and work with the doctor. ...Read more

Broaden exposure &: focus. There are many good people in this world. Likely you are focusing on someone close by, convenient & imagining beyond what is necessarily true.

Same question, : ...same answer. You need to see a doctor, my friend. We cannot diagnose your problem online. At your age, cancer is not terribly common but if you do have it, there are many good oncologists in Tyler (some of whom work for the same group I do). Why don't you chill, see a doc and let him/her take over to see what's the problem? Fear solves nothing. Best to you. ...Read more
Light exposure: There are many, many approaches to jet lag, however the approach that i think has the best evidence basis involves using light and dark exposure to shift your body's internal clock to the new time zone.

Is taking a nap guarantee wil bring benefit or it jus wasting of time coz i wake up guitily.If it brings benefit how should the quality of a nap be?
Away with guilt!: Many people find a power nap (eve if you don't completely fall asleep) of about 15 minutes helpful to re-charge them for the rest of the day. If you sleep for a long period of time you can wake up groggy. Normal guilt is when you go against your value system and are getting feedback. Neurotic guilt is excessive, and hopefully that's not your case. ...Read more
Not sure: There is already limited evidence of glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate for use in non spinal related pathology like knee arthritis and even less so in the case of spinal pathology. I'll be honest if it does help, it'll likely be minimal to small, but alternatively, it's unlikely to be harmful in any significant way(besides your wallet!). Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
