DST: Daylight saving time, also known as daylight savings time or daylight time, and summer time, is the practice of advancing clocks during warmer months so that darkness falls at a later clock time.

BUT – Do you have trouble fitting daylight into your winter lifestyle? Or, have difficulty seeing medical patients, making hospital rounds, or serving consulting or financial advisory clients? Maybe it’s SAD?

But, how do you cope with the long dark, days of December and January?

To raise awareness of SAD, First Choice has brought together statistics from sources such as SADA,, Bupa and the Mood Disorders Society of Canada to create this new infographic.

In it you can find out how much daylight office workers receive year-round, as well as a collection of facts that can help you recognize and treat SAD. With December and the winter solstice drawing in we are certainly in for some short days in the coming weeks.

PODCAST: The RAND Corporation Found that Commercial Health Insurance Plans Pay Hospitals 241% What Medicare Pays

The RAND Corporation Found that Commercial Health Insurance Plans Pay Hospitals 241% What Medicare Pays.

But Also That It Varies from 150% to 400%.

Dr. Boram (Kim) Park, MD - Dallas, TX | Internal Medicine


Health Insurance Companies Paid for Hospital Outpatient Services at an Even Higher Average Rate of 293% of Medicare.

A Detailed Look at the RAND Analysis Reveals that the ‘Basket’ of Services at Each Hospital Had Very Little Data.

For Example, the RAND Study’s Data for the Baylor Scott & White Hospital System in Dallas – Fort Worth Represented Only 0.4% of the Hospital’s Total Revenue.

For the Texas Health Hospital System Also in Dallas – Fort Worth, the RAND Study’s Data Only Represented 0.96% of the Hospital’s Total Revenue.

That Sample Size Is Likely Too Small to Make Accurate Comparisons from One Hospital System to Another Regarding their Commercial Insurance Prices Relative to Medicare.

ASSESSMENT: Your thoughts and comments are appreciated.
