AIS Newsletter Finds Four Key Reasons for Lack of Interest in Small Business Health Options Program

Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 16, 2015

Since the beginning of the year, the Department of Health and Human Services has offered regular enrollment updates for federally facilitated exchanges, but has been silent about the state of its Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP). Some industry observers contacted by Atlantic Information Services, Inc.’s (AIS) Inside Health Insurance Exchanges (HEX) wonder if SHOP will ever attract interest. For its April issue, HEX identified four key barriers that could have led to limited participation in SHOP.

(1) The small-business tax credit isn’t attractive enough. The maximum credit is available only to the smallest small businesses (10 or less) with lower average annual wages per worker ($ 25,000 or less), and without real financial incentives, private insurance exchanges will appear to be the better option.

(2) There’s a lack of employee choice when it comes to choosing a plan in SHOP. In most states with federally facilitated exchanges, employers aren’t given the choice to choose a plan on the program, due largely to calls for a delay from state regulators who worried that a poorly functioning employee choice program would lead to delayed payments to carriers, misinformation, consumer confusion and adverse selection, HEX says. Chris Condeluci, a principal at CC Law & Policy in Washington, D.C., who worked for the Senate Finance Committee during the crafting of the health reform law, told HEX that SHOP is “clunky” and “glitch-riddled.”

(3) SHOP faces competition from private exchanges. For most small businesses, private exchanges offer more options and better features, such as decision-support systems, education tools and end-to-end transactional services, Condeluci tells HEX. They also offer full employee choice for medical coverage, and offer ancillary products and services such as vision, dental, life, financial and payroll, increasing their attractiveness.

(4) Once employers have to give up their grandfathered, non-ACA compliant plans, enrollment on SHOP is expected to increase slightly, HEX says, but the majority of employers are expected to explore their options with a broker or move to a private exchange.

“The underlying market isn’t so broken that employers are crying out for a solution,” Rosemarie Day, president of Day Health Strategies and former chief operating officer of the Massachusetts exchange, told HEX. “What they want is dramatically lower premiums, and that’s not what SHOP offers.”

Condeluci worries that more tax dollars will be funneled into SHOP “until we come to the realization that we spent billions of dollars on SHOP, which was a failing exercise.”

American Hearing & Balance Offers Expanded Tinnitus Therapy Options


Glendale, CA (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound where no outside source is found to exist. People affected often summarize the sound as a continual ringing, hissing, roaring, buzzing, or whooshing noise that is perceived either continuously or intermittently.

As reported by the American Tinnitus Association, tinnitus affects a projected 50 million Americans, with an additional 30 million workers at risk for developing the condition together with noise-induced hearing loss. The chronic sound of tinnitus impairs cognitive function, attention, and overall quality of life for those affected.

The good news is, while not all cases of tinnitus can be cured or alleviated, modern-day improvements in tinnitus therapy can provide much-needed and substantial relief for those afflicted with the condition.

The hearing specialists at American Hearing & Balance have developed expertise in the latest tinnitus treatments and are now offering these services to those in California. Contrary to popular belief, several tinnitus therapy alternatives exist that are generally very effective. A hearing specialist can work with individuals to find the best option for each individual case.

Treatment options include:

Treatment of an underlying medical condition, such as a blood vessel condition, can cure or alleviate tinnitus.
Hearing aids can generate the dual benefits of improving hearing and masking the tinnitus. This therapy is especially effective in those with untreated hearing loss that is causing the tinnitus.
Drug therapy, while unable to cure tinnitus, can create relief in certain circumstances with specific medications.
Sound therapy produces white noise that can mask the tinnitus, making it less bothersome. Various devices can provide sound therapy, and a hearing specialist can help patients select the best one.

Octane Fitness New xRide


Brooklyn Park, Minn. (PRWEB) December 02, 2014

After reinventing seated exercise with the creation of the unprecedented xRide recumbent elliptical in 2008, Octane Fitness, LLC, has launched its new xRide series for home use, now featuring compatibility with Octane’s SmartLink app.

“The xRide is an outstanding way to cross train – and definitely one of the most effective ways to work the entire body while seated,” said Tim Porth, executive vice president of product development and marketing at Octane Fitness. “Now SmartLink adds customized workout regimens that motivate, add variety and drive results for every level exerciser.”

The three new xRide recumbent ellipticals feature an intuitive console that simultaneously displays all workout data, so users don’t have to toggle between screens to view progress. On the xR6xi model, Octane’s exclusive SmartLight technology shows exercisers how hard they are working, if they are in their target heart rate zone and when to prepare for the next interval during a Workout Booster. And exercisers who want to multi-task can take advantage of several placement options for a tablet.

The xR6xi is compatible with SmartLink, Octane’s intelligent, free app that connects to and controls the elliptical from an iPad®. Users choose from four workout categories – Lose Weight, Feel Better, Get Stronger and Athletic Performance – and specify a 30-, 60- or 90-day program, and SmartLink creates customized workouts geared toward exercisers’ goals, recalibrating if necessary to ensure progress.

SmartLink also adds coaching to the X-Mode™, Chest Press and Leg Press Workout Boosters to help exercisers focus on proper form during each interval.

For convenience, SmartLink can run in the background, so exercisers can watch a movie, surf the Internet or send email during workouts – while SmartLink keeps running. Bluetooth® 4.0 connects SmartLink to the xRide, as well as to other devices, such as heart rate monitors.

Exercisers can enter their individual data, favorite workouts and preferred feedback display into the app. Workout results are recorded in the app, so users can monitor progress and boast on social networks with the social share function. Be Fit tips and instructional videos on various Octane workouts are also included.

Free app updates add greater workout variety over time, helping exercisers to stay motivated.

Innovation That Fuels

Accommodating every exerciser, the Active Seat Position™ on the xRide has multiple height and tilt adjustments for comfortable customization.

Octane’s signature PowerStroke™ technology results in 23% more calories burned and 343% more glute activation than on a recumbent bike. The patented MultiGrip handlebars offer several positions to maximize comfort and fully engage the upper body for a total-body challenge, and stationary foot pegs enable exercisers to periodically isolate the upper body while resting the legs.

With 20 resistance levels to meet the needs of all users, the xRide equips exercisers to perform leisurely rides or go all-out with a variety of training routines, from Beginner to 30:30 Interval, a challenging athletic program.

The new xRide recumbent ellipticals are sold at specialty fitness retailers throughout the United States with MSRPs of $ 4,299 for the xR6xi, $ 3,899 for the xR6x and $ 2,899 for the xR4x. The free SmartLink app for the xRide will be available in December at iTunes® at http://bit.ly/octanesmartlink.

Octane Fitness Background

Relentlessly fueled to reinvent zero-impact cardiovascular exercise, Octane Fitness has perfected the elliptical machine, introduced a new category with the xRide® recumbent elliptical, designed strength-infused cardio with the unique CROSS CiRCUIT®, created exercise in a new direction with the LateralX®, reinvented running with the Zero Runner® and is leading smarter training with SmartLink™.
