The Virtual Doctor Will See You Now!

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA CMP™

[Publisher-in-Chief]

Recently, I was invited to speak at a regional convention. No surprise there as I have been doing so – around the world – for more than twenty years. And, I was asked to submit the usual paraphernalia; a formal CV, audio-visual needs, travel arrangements and times, and a personal photo which were all dutifully supplied.

Then, I was asked to supply something that flabbergasted me; I became slack-jawed, actually.

DEM’s Avatar 

Imagine my surprise when I was asked for an avatar; not just a digital photograph. So – having none – I had one made and now submit it for your review.

So, how do I virtually look – better or worse – glasses or contact lens? It seems as though some folks are more interested in the virtual me; than the real me. Go figure!

For KEY Hospital Employees

By PERRY D’ALESSIO; CPA

[D’Alessio Tocci & Pell LLP]

Dr. David E. Marcinko; MBA CMP®

http://www.CertifiedMedicalPlanner.org

Effective January 1st 2014, the limitation on the annual benefit under a defined benefit plan under Section 415(b)(1)(A) was increased from $205,000 to $210,000.

For a participant who separated from service before January 1st 2014, the limitation for defined benefit plans under Section 415(b)(1)(B) is computed by multiplying the participant’s compensation limitation, as adjusted through 2013, by 1.0155.

The limitation for defined contribution plans under Section 415(c)(1)(A) is increased in 2014 from $51,000 to $52,000.

The Code provides that various other dollar amounts are to be adjusted at the same time and in the same manner as the dollar limitation of Section 415(b)(1)(A). These dollar amounts and the adjusted amounts are as follows:

  • The limitation under Section 402(g)(1) on the exclusion for elective deferrals described in Section 402(g)(3) is increased to $17,500.
  • The annual compensation limit under Sections 401(a)(17), 404(l), 408(k)(3)(C), and 408(k)(6)(D)(ii) is increased from $255,000 to $260,000.
  • The dollar limitation under Section 416(i)(1)(A)(i) concerning the definition of key employee in a top-heavy plan is increased from $165,000 to $170,000.
  • The dollar amount under Section 409(o)(1)(C)(ii) for determining the maximum account balance in an employee stock ownership plan subject to a 5‑year distribution period is increased from $1,035,000 to $1,050,000, while the dollar amount used to determine the lengthening of the 5‑year distribution period is increased from $205,000 to $210,000.
  • The limitation used in the definition of highly compensated employee under Section 414(q)(1)(B) is increased from to $115,000.
  • The dollar limitation under Section 414(v)(2)(B)(i) for catch-up contributions to an applicable employer plan other than a plan described in Section 401(k)(11) or Section 408(p) for individuals aged 50 or over is increased from $5,000 to $5,500. The dollar limitation under Section 414(v)(2)(B)(ii) for catch-up contributions to an applicable employer plan described in Section 401(k)(11) or Section 408(p) for individuals aged 50 or over remains unchanged at $2,500.
  • The annual compensation limitation under Section 401(a)(17) for eligible participants in certain governmental plans that, under the plan as in effect on July 1, 1993, allowed cost‑of‑living adjustments to the compensation limitation under the plan under Section 401(a)(17) to be taken into account, is increased from $380,000 to $385,000.
  • The compensation amount under Section 408(k)(2)(C) regarding simplified employee pensions (SEPs) is increased from $500 to $550.
  • The limitation under Section 408(p)(2)(E) regarding SIMPLE retirement accounts is increased from to $12,000.
  • The limitation on deferrals under Section 457(e)(15) concerning deferred compensation plans of state and local governments and tax-exempt organizations is increased to $17,500.
  • The compensation amounts under Section 1.61‑21(f)(5)(i) of the Income Tax Regulations concerning the definition of “control employee” for fringe benefit valuation purposes is increased from $100,000 to $105,000.  The compensation amount under Section 1.61‑21(f)(5)(iii) is increased from $205,000 to $210,000.
  • The Code also provides that several pension-related amounts are to be adjusted using the cost-of-living adjustment under Section 1(f)(3). These dollar amounts and the adjustments are as follows:
  • The adjusted gross income limitation under Section 25B(b)(1)(A) for determining the retirement savings contribution credit for married taxpayers filing a joint return is increased from $35,500 to $36,000; the limitation under Section 25B(b)(1)(B) is increased from $38,500 to $39,000; and the limitation under Sections 25B(b)(1)(C) and 25B(b)(1)(D), from $59,000 to $60,000.

  • The adjusted gross income limitation under Section 25B(b)(1)(A) for determining the retirement savings contribution credit for all other taxpayers is increased from $17,750 to $18,000; the limitation under Section 25B(b)(1)(B) is increased from $19,250 to $19,500; and the limitation under Sections 25B(b)(1)(C) and 25B(b)(1)(D), from $29,500 to $30,000.
  • The applicable dollar amount under Section 219(g)(3)(B)(i) for determining the deductible amount of an IRA contribution for taxpayers who are active participants filing a joint return or as a qualifying widow(er) is increased from $95,000 to $96,000. The applicable dollar amount under Section 219(g)(3)(B)(ii) for all other taxpayers (other than married taxpayers filing separate returns) is increased from $59,000 to $60,000. The applicable dollar amount under Section 219(g)(7)(A) for a taxpayer who is not an active participant but whose spouse is an active participant is increased from $178,000 to $181,000.
  • The adjusted gross income limitation under Section 408A(c)(3)(C)(ii)(I) for determining the maximum Roth IRA contribution for married taxpayers filing a joint return or for taxpayers filing as a qualifying widow(er) is increased from $178,000 to $181,000. The adjusted gross income limitation under Section 408A(c)(3)(C)(ii)(II) for all other taxpayers (other than married taxpayers filing separate returns) is increased from $112,000 to $114,000.

Promoting the … Health Dictionary Series™

By Dr. David Edward Marcinko FACFAS MBA CMP™

[Editor-in-Chief]

DEM blue

A day for lexicographers everywhere, Dictionary Day was founded to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Noah Webster – the father of the modern dictionary.

The objective of this day is to emphasize the importance of dictionary skills, and seeks to improve vocabulary.

History

Webster began to write his dictionary at the age of 43. It took him 27 years to finish it! In addition to traditional English vocabulary, it contained uniquely American words.

Our Health Dictionary Series™

The HDS Consists of three handbooks:

  1. Dictionary of Health Insurance and Managed Care
  2. Dictionary of Health Information Technology and Security
  3. Dictionary of Health Economics and Finance

Each has 10,000 terms, definitions and initialisms!

Dictionary Foreword Links:

Assessment

Why not take the opportunity to learn some new health administration terms, words and definitons? Designated as Doody’s Core Titles.

“Health care economist Dr. David Edward Marcinko, MBA, and his colleagues at the Institute of Medical Business Advisors, Inc., should be complimented for conceiving and completing this laudable project. The Dictionary of Health Insurance and Managed Care lifts the fog of confusion surrounding the most contentious topic in the health care industrial complex today. My suggestion, therefore, is to “read it, refer to it, recommend it, and reap.”

What Vehicle Parts Are At Risk in the Summer Heat?

Join Our Mailing List 

Still susceptible to heat and summer sun

[By Dr. David Edward Marcinko MBA]

dem21America’s roads are always busy, but the summer months are particularly hectic; especially here in Atlanta, GA.

As millions of Americans head off for their annual summer vacation, you can expect long traffic jams and frustrated drivers.

Modern luxury cars – that many physicians love – may be mechanically advanced, but they are still susceptible to heat, and the summer sun can be particularly hazardous for certain parts of your car.

So, please allow me to equip you with some information pertinent to your warm weather journeys. Trust me – I’m a doctor!

Hoses and Belts

Though it may seem rather obvious, it is very important to keep the engine cool when driving in the summer heat. Hoses help pump coolant to and from the engine while belts enable the fan to run effectively and continually cool your car’s engine.

In extreme heat, however, hoses can crack and belts can snap. You can check the hoses and belts yourself by looking for visual signs of wear or damage. If you are unsure, schedule an appointment with our service department before you set out on a summer road trip.

Dave's Jaguar Sedan

Cooling system

Modern cars have very effective cooling systems, which can counter relatively high extremes of temperature, but they have their limits. Aside from problems with hoses and belts, low levels of coolant, a leak in the radiator or a missing radiator cap can spell disaster if you are driving in hot weather.

Tires

Your car’s tires are vulnerable throughout the year, however, under-inflated, over-inflated or worn tires can be particularly dangerous during the summer. Tire pressure changes as the temperature increases. If the tire is under-inflated, it can bulge outward and put pressure on the sidewalls of the tire. If this continues, the tire can eventually burst. If the tire is overinflated, you are also at greater risk of hydroplaning in the event of a rain shower.

Oil filter

The car you drive relies heavily on oil, as this substance allows car parts to run efficiently. Heavy driving during the summer puts additional pressure on the oil, and on the oil filters in your car. Aim to change your oil [natural or synthetic] filters as often as the owner’s manual recommends, and certainly get them checked before you head off on a summer expedition.

Jaguar Sedan

Assessment

Whether you are staying local this summer or driving hundreds of miles, I encourage your attention to the above to protect your car from the rigor of summer heat.
