Online Insurance Marketplace has released a blog presenting the benefits of life insurance for seniors during retirement.
By having life insurance during retirement, seniors can cover the cost of their funerals, provide college education for grandchildren, cover mortgage loans, avoid inheritance taxes and most importantly, they can get peace of mind.
The importance of life insurance for seniors grew even more in the last few years, since funeral prices have gone up. A common funeral ceremony can total to a cost of over $ 10,000, an amount which many families cannot afford. But, by having a simple life insurance policy, seniors can cover their own burial expenses without burdening the family with extra-expenses. At the same time, they guarantee for themselves an honorable funeral.
Life insurance has become a product much more accessible for seniors. Since they became a big part of the market demographic, insurance agencies will sell traditional life insurance policies to seniors up to the age of 65. Even after that age, seniors can still get life coverage by applying for a no medical exam policy. These policies are more expensive, but the underwriting process is greatly simplified and they are more accessible.
Online Insurance Marketplace can help seniors find affordable life insurance by allowing them to search and compare quote from different agencies on a single website. This method is a lot more convenient and efficient.
Seniors can benefit from a life insurance policy and help their families at the same time. For a peaceful retirement, life coverage is essential! said Russell Rabichev, Marketing Director of Internet Marketing Company.
Online Insurance Marketplace is an online provider of life, home, health, and auto insurance quotes. It is unique in that this website does not simply stick to one kind of insurance carrier, but brings the clients the best deals from many different online insurance carriers. This way, clients have offers from multiple carriers all in one place, this website. On this site, customers have access to quotes for insurance plans from various agencies, such as local or nationwide agencies, brand names insurance companies, etc.

Medical tourism is defined as an act of travel of patients from their home country to other destinations for availing medical services. Rise in healthcare costs in developed countries coupled with the availability of high quality medical services at a low cost in developing countries have given a boost to the medical tourism industry. These medical services range from elective procedures such as cosmetic surgeries to complicated surgeries such as cardiac, orthopedics, neurosurgery and others. Significant growth in this industry is due to economic developments in developing countries that in turn has led to the growth in the medical industry and quality of medical services.
Rise in the healthcare expenditure in developed countries coupled with in the growing elderly population has also contributed to the growth of the medical tourism across the globe. Economic crisis in the U.S., increased the number of uninsured population, consequently further triggering the growth of this market. Recently, there are approximately 50 million uninsured Americans that are willing to travel abroad for affordable and quality medical care. Globalization and improved communication technology act as a catalyst to boost the growth of this industry.
The development of medical tourism industry is based on several factors such as reduced cost of procedures, long waiting time and high demand for cosmetic surgeries. Medical travel is not only witnessed for intricate procedures but is also expanding due to growing demand for cosmetic and dental procedures since these are usually not reimbursed under regular health insurance policies.
Patients traveling abroad can save from 30% to 90% on a procedure, including their travel expenditures, as compared to the medical costs in their own countries. Long waiting time is another factor which has substantially boosted the growth of this industry. Patients based in Canada and U.K travel to low cost destinations for their treatments in order to avoid long waiting periods in their own countries and receive timely access to serious ailments.
Rise in healthcare costs in developed countries coupled with the availability of high quality medical services at lower prices in developing nations has primarily surged the expansion of the medical tourism industry. Moreover, rise in elderly population along with growing number of uninsured population has further triggered the market growth. Patients are traveling abroad not only for cosmetic surgeries with a quick recovery, but also for sophisticated cardiovascular surgeries. Many countries plan to leverage medical tourism as a strategy to boost their healthcare services and tourism industry. By encouraging its presence in the medical tourism market, a country can stimulate its economic growth and create employment opportunities. Consequently, the medical tourism industry is rapidly expanding and is anticipated to have a significant growth in the near future.

Medical tourism is a direct result of globalization of healthcare. There is an emerging opportunity for Asian and Middle Eastern countries that are catering to the healthcare requirements of developed countries like the U.S, Canada and European countries. Factors such as medical specializations, geographic proximity, portability of health insurance, and reputation of the country are some of the main reasons that compel the patient to move to another destination. However, factors such as problem in follow-up care, medical malpractice and others could restrain the growth of this market.

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
The Protective Group, a leading security company on Long Island, responds to an article that discusses the recent popularity in services provided by insurance brokers.
The implementation of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, has increased the demand for insurance brokers, according to an October 23rd article by the Business Insider titled Is Health Insurance Broker The Next Hot Job In America?
The article notes that the number of individuals trying to purchase insurance policies has skyrocketed due to this new act. Because many people do not have the knowledge to pick the best policy, they turn to the expertise of insurance brokers.
According to the article, The demand for brokers has increased since the U.S. government gave online brokers permission in July to enroll clients in subsidized plans offered through the federal and state health-care exchange. The article also cites hiring data from insurance firms. One firm, GoHealth, has already hired 650 new insurance brokers this year.
John Monderine, CEO of the Protective Group, a leading insurance investigator provider, discusses reasons why insurance brokers will be in high demand. Due to the new insurance rules outlined in the Affordable Care Act, many individuals here in the US need to purchase or update their insurance policy. Health insurance policies have also gotten more and more complex, so often times professional advice is required to pick the proper plan. Since health insurance brokers are paid commission by the insurance companies, they are actually free for individuals. I expect many people to seek insurance brokers in the near future.
The Protective Group is an elite full service private security firm with specializations in special event security, corporate security, private investigators, insurance investigators and surveillance. Its top-notch professional security guards have over 150 years of combined law enforcement service and its security personnel are physically fit, professional, athletic, and completely dedicated to ensuring events proceeds without a hitch. From charity runs and fashion shows, to fundraisers and art shows, the Protective Group instills confidence and assures safety at an exclusive event or place of business.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013
Everyone interested in universal health coverage is invited to a gathering in Seattle on Saturday, November 9 for the annual meeting of Health Care for All – Washington, a statewide organization working to establish a single-payer publicly funded system of health coverage. http://www.healthcareforallwa.org
Dr. John Geyman, professor emeritus of family medicine at the University of Washington and author of “Health Care Wars: How Market Ideology and Corporate Power Are Killing Americans” (2012), will give the keynote address, Single Payer in Washington State: Challenges and Approaches. An additional talk, Our Path to Winning Is Paved with Values, will be given by Sandra VanderVen, a senior organizer with the progressive advocacy group Fuse Washington.
A growing number of people recognize that the Affordable Care Act will leave too many Americans inadequately covered with unaffordable private insurance policies, said HCFA-WA president Chuck Richards.
Jeff Johnson, President of the Washington State Labor Council, emphasized this point in his testimony at a legislative hearing for House Bill 1085 in Olympia in February 2013, the 2-minute video of which can be viewed at: http://www.healthcareforallwa.org/health-care-videos/hb1085-hearing-testimony-videos/#anchor4.
The meeting will take place from 1 to 4:30 p.m. in Hildebrand Hall at Plymouth Church, U.C.C., 1217 6th Ave. All are invited to attend. Refreshments provided.
The goal of HCFA-WA is to obtain secure, affordable, and comprehensive health coverage for all Washington residents. Coverage would be provided through a unified health care financing system, the proposed Washington Health Security Trust. In the 2013 legislative session, a bill establishing the WHST, HB 1085, had a hearing in the House Health Care and Wellness Committee. Video clips of the hearing can be viewed at http://www.healthcareforallWA.org.
“The annual meeting is especially important this year as we consider where we are on our goal to achieve coverage for all Washingtonians,” said HCFA-WA president Richards. “We will learn how each of us can participate in the 2014 strategy.”
The nonpartisan U.S. Congressional Budget Office estimates that about 30 million Americans will remain uninsured even after full implementation of the ACA. President Obama himself stated, at a 2009 press conference, that “Unless you have what’s called a single-payer system in which everybody is automatically covered, then you’re probably not going to reach every single individual.”
Plymouth Church, U.C.C., is in downtown Seattle, across from the Seneca Street I-5 off-ramp at 1217 6th Ave Seattle, WA 98101. Free parking is available in the church’s garage, on University Street approached from Fifth Avenue. The Metro No. 2 bus runs on Seneca; many other bus routes run nearby.
