These are the insulin pumps that are available in the US. The largest health insurance company in America, United Healthcare, has now decided that they will NOT cover all of these pumps and they have picked which ones THEY choose to cover..... In effect, they have just decided that a diabetics life-saving device will no longer be covered by their insurance if it doesn’t fall into the select few they have chosen. Do you like Omnipod? (Just throwing a name out there - don’t know which ones they have chosen) What if UHC doesn’t cover it?? OH WELL....get a different pump. How is this possible in America???!!! This feels like the whole “If you like your doctor, you keep your doctor”-nonsense..... @unitedhealthcare , DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOUR PATIENTS!!!!! #UnitedHealthCare#UHC#UnitedHealth#FreeThePumps
In this country you have to take advantage of good weather when it comes! What a few days it’s been. But earlier in the week when the sun was shining we felt all summery and took our lovely residents Alan, John and Barbara for a trip out and a picnic at Wollaton Park.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, working on their sun tans - yes the weather was that glorious.
The day was made complete with some fab ice creams. Roll on Summer and some more days like this!

👉 The move builds on the existing discount programs that were announced a year ago, which the company said will serve more than 9 million consumers this year.
On Tuesday of this week, United Health lost a case dealing with mental health coverage for its denial of claims for mental health benefits. U.S. Chief Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero found that United Behavioral Health, the insurer’s unit that administers treatments for mental illness and addiction in private health plans, used overly restrictive guidelines to make its decision on mental health coverage in making decisions for tens of thousands of mental health and substance abuse patients. He stated that United Behavioral Health effectively discriminated against patients with mental health problems to save money. He dismissed portions of the testimony by UnitedHealth’s experts as evasive and deceptive. Judge Spero also found that United Behavioral Health had violated its fiduciary duty under federal law and described the company’s guidelines as “unreasonable and an abuse of discretion” and having been “infected” by financial incentives meant to restrict access to care. #healthcare#insurancecompany#unitedhealthcare#mentalhealth#insurance#insurancedenial#unitedhealth#unitedhealthcare

Dow Jones Takes A Dive
Those of you that were long in the market yesterday would have noticed a pretty spectacular, but distressing, turn of events when the market quickly erased its early gains before sinking into a sea of red. But what was the cause?
As per usual, the culprit was poor economic data mixed with fading optimism about trade negotiations. Weak construction spending managed to push economists to believe that GDP growth forecasts will fall short of expectations for the fourth quarter, sparking a knee-jerk sell-off.
All major US indexes fell yesterday after opening in the green with the #DowJones , S&P 500 and #Nasdaq closing 0.8%, 0.6% and 0.2% respectively while the #VIX spiked almost 5%. Ouch! The effects of the sell-off were felt the most in some of the top performing sectors in the last two months, including #technology , #financials and #healthcare . #UnitedHealth (-4.1%), #Salesforce .com (-6.52%) and AT&T (-2.7%) were among the worst affected by the fallout. The key takeaway from all of this is that the markets are still very vulnerable to bad #news , and that while the end of the trade war may be in sight, there is still a lot of work to be done.
In times like these it's always good to remember that the market likes to take the stairs up and the elevator down. The best way to handle it is by diversifying broadly and keeping your cool. Happy investing!
