Comment on Republican Governor Suppresses Report Showing That Private Healthcare Costs More by Bjorn Button http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=17126&cpage=1#comment-13177 Bjorn Button Fri, 06 Apr 2012 14:52:05 +0000 http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=17126#comment-13177 I am not sure how the governor of my state has effected my healthcare ( she is a republican) but I am happy with the care I have. I use www. txmedicareoptions.com/ because I didn't have to go through an employer ( I am still working) and I was able and state red tape. Once I do retire, no medicare for me. I am sticking with private with a company that is flexible. I need final expense insurance so my family doesn't have to worry about paying for me after I pass away.

Anyway, many thanks for your comment and apologies for the glitch. Incidentally, we'll be returning to daily articles very soon, after time out to deal with a family matter.

Comment on Medical Tourism – Part 2 – Pros and Cons by Russ Saupe http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=6543&cpage=1#comment-13154 Russ Saupe Wed, 29 Feb 2012 18:10:13 +0000 http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=6543#comment-13154 The concept of Medical Tourism may be quite legitimate and a great idea in the current economic climate. But be advised there are already internet fraud specialists who have devised ways to victimize people under the guise of this industry. Out of the Fort Pierce / Port St Lucie area of Florida come a husband/wife team named Fred Siller (aka Frederico Gustavo) and Lorena Siller (aka Lorena Ortiz aka Lorena Ortiz-Siller aka Lorena Kay aka Lori Burns) who have devised various websites claiming that they run a group known as the New Life Medical Tourism Group. They attempt to hire people as agents to recruit potential patients to have medical and dental procedures performed in Colombia or Panama at a fraction of the normal cost that they would incur in the USA. For only $595 these new agents are provided with all the brochures, training materials, business cards, a company email address and more. They are all set to earn a whopping 8% commission. The only catch is Fred (Frederico) and Lorena aren’t affiliated with any doctors, dentists or hospitals in either Colombia or Panama and they can provide no real leads to potential patients. They’ve never worked in the medical field. They are scam artists working out of a Goin Postal PO Box in Fort Pierce. It probably costs them $10 to print the materials they send for a tidy $585 profit. This is just one of about 5 or 6 internet scams they have in the works. The others include: Profit with Fred Cruise2Cash Roadway to Riches Hand of Heaven Frelo Latin Wear Most are internet pyramid schemes, one (Hand of Heaven) has a religious twist to it. Frelo Latin Wear is an internet clothing line they are trying to get off the ground. Clothing that will never arrive. Anyone who sends these people money will never see it again. Simply do a Google search on their names and aliases for more details of their scams. The concept of Medical Tourism may be quite legitimate and a great idea in the current economic climate.

Comment on Five Inherited Genetic Variants May Indicate A High Risk Of Prostate Cancer by P.Scully http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=17736&cpage=1#comment-13124 P.Scully Thu, 09 Feb 2012 21:32:46 +0000 http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=17736#comment-13124 There is so much that we have to look at when we are dealing with the whole subject of senior's health. What applies to people in their 30's or 40's doesn't necessarily hold true for seniors. It's great to have <a href="http://www.ahealthysenior.com" rel="nofollow">articles and sites like this</a> whose focus is on seniors health. After all most of us (hopefully) will become one some day.

Comment on Migraine Relief Device Undergoing Trials by cbusnitz http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=8997&cpage=1#comment-12730 cbusnitz Mon, 26 Sep 2011 19:35:23 +0000 http://silverbuzzcafe.com/?p=8997#comment-12730 It will be interesting to see if this device works. I recently saw a few stories on news mags like The Journal with Joan Lunden and CNN that were talking about the number of people who deal with chronic migraines and the effects it has on their lives. Hopefully this thing will have the capability of helping some people. It will be interesting to see if this device works.
