ACAM & AAPMD JOIN FORCES IN 2016 The gap in education and biased acceptable practices in mainstream medicine and dentistry
has long concerned healthcare professionals. There is a definite need to learn from one another to bring critical resources together to address the alarming rise of chronic diseases. Conventional and integrative medicine will not solve this crisis alone - the only solution is collaborative care designed for the individual. These concerns will be addressed as practitioners of all genres unite in Tucson, AZ September 15-17, 2016. ACAM is collaborating with the American Academy for Physiological Medicine & Dentistry for the 2016 annual meeting.
DID YOU KNOW? PATIENTS CAN PAY MEDICAL EXPENSES WITH LIFE INSURANCE
Adding to a patient's stress of the diagnosis and treatment, the costs of uncovered healthcare combined with a loss of income can quickly drain a family's resources. When available, a life insurance policy can provide the needed financial relief through a process known as a life settlement. The article below, written by Dr. Andrea Brockman and Dr. Vincent DiLorenzo of Lifetime Horizons, explains the basics of life settlements and when that option would be appropriate.
Life Settlements Defined
A life settlement is a financial transaction that enables qualified life insurance policy owners (individual, company, Trust, or charity) to receive a cash advance on their life insurance coverage by selling it to a state licensed financial institution - a bank, hedge fund, pension plan - known as a life settlement provider. It's a little known fact that, like stocks, bonds, art, or antiques, life insurance is a financial asset that can be bought and sold by the policyowner. Rather than cashing in a policy for its cash surrender value (CSV), it may be leveraged via a life settlement for its fair market value (paid by the investor) which typically yields 3-5 times more than the CSV offered by the insurance company. The purchaser handles all the recurring premium payments and becomes the new owner and beneficiary of the policy, receiving the death benefit upon passing of the insured. READ MORE
