Advertisement Supported by Your Money Long-ago miscalculations by insurers have led to policyholders’ facing steep premium increases. But there are ways to keep costs down. ByTara Siegel Bernard Aug. 23, 2019, 6:08 p.m. ET Karen Herzog, a retired high school teacher, bought a long-term care insurance policy 12 years ago because she didn’t want to burden her only daughter if someday she could no longer care for herself. Then a letter arrived in May that complicated her well-laid plan.

Susan Tompor Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EDT Jun 15, 2019 Alex Pardoe, 25, is what some might dub the anti-millennial. Except, he's not really. Much like others in their 20s or 30s, he's savvy about building a brand, marketing his talents and recognizing how to use Instagram and YouTube to turn a head and grab a headline. He's just making a whole lot more money than you'd imagine for someone in a generation painfully overrun with bloated student loans, bad jokes about participation trophies, and way too much sharing on Instagram. OK, he does share way too much on Instagram. His Instagram handle: @Alexpardashian — a playful mix of his name and the Kardsahians. Yet instead of being burdened by six-figure student loan debt, he's earned shock-and-awe status with a six-figure income. Take this CNBC.com headline: "This 25-year-old hairdresser makes $280,000 a year in Detroit." A young hairstylist making $280,000 a year? … [Read more...] about Aesthetic Hair Co. hairstylist Alex Pardoe makes $280K a year

By Washington Post | [email protected] | PUBLISHED: January 11, 2019 at 9:02 am | UPDATED: January 11, 2019 at 9:03 am By Tiffany Stanley, Special To The Washington Post At first, it seemed like the stomach flu. Weeks before his 24th birthday in May 2015, Alec Raeshawn Smith was overcome by troubling symptoms. His body ached, his stomach hurt and he wasn’t sleeping well. Laine Lu, a co-worker at his restaurant job, urged him to see a doctor. “This is not normal,” she recalls telling him. “Go get checked out.” His mother, Nicole Smith-Holt, worried too. He called her when he decided to go to a health clinic near Minneapolis. He said, “Seriously, Mom, I think something is really wrong with me.” The diagnosis was surprising: Type 1 diabetes. Alec’s blood sugar levels were nearly twice the healthy limit. His family didn’t have a history of diabetes, and lanky, 6-foot-3 Alec looked like the picture of health. At 23, he seemed too old … [Read more...] about Skyrocketing cost of insulin causes some desperate diabetics to ration
By Stephanie Armour The Wall Street Journal Thu., Dec. 27, 2018 John Stockman thought he just had a terrible stomach ache when he went to the emergency room at UCHealth Memorial Hospital Center while on vacation in Colorado Springs, Colo., last year. It was a clot that had partially blocked the flow of blood from his intestine. By nightfall the next day, Mr. Stockman, 62, was on a ventilator after emergency surgery to remove 4 feet of damaged bowel. Over the next months, the Tennessee resident’s heart would stop. He would have seven more surgeries. He would survive weeks in intensive care with an open belly wound. He would beg doctors to let him die. And he would learn firsthand how confounded patients feel in a U.S. health system where a fast-moving stream of procedures and tests can lead to an avalanche of bills most people can’t understand and never expected. Over the course of the out-of-state treatment for his illness, Mr. Stockman had more than 400 … [Read more...] about John Stockman’s medical bills topped $1 million. What happened?
