The INVEST Digital Health Virtual conference, held in partnership with healthcare industry association Medical Alley, included conversations spanning behavioral health, the future of health insurance and how hospitals are addressing the pandemic.

We recorded each session and now you can check it out on video!

The latest installment focuses on the future of health insurance in the panel: VC Versus Entrepreneur: A Debate on How the Future of Health Insurance Can Be Reimagined

In this debate, an entrepreneur argues that consumers are ready to be active healthcare consumers, and better insurance design – one that illuminates treatment options with clear prices so consumers know the cost upfront and can make better decisions in advance of care – is the way to get there. A venture capitalist maintains that the world of insurance is indeed so complicated that no amount of improved design will do and that consumers need advocates to make prudent decisions that ultimately lower costs overall and for them.

Gov. David Ige today said the state launched a new virtual unemployment insurance call center that started today to handle the backlog in jobless claims.

Ige said today $4.9 million in federal coronavirus relief funds have been allocated to staff the 200-person call center to answer all types of claimant questions.

An antiquated computer system hamstrung the department and forced some unemployment claimants into a frustrating filing process, with many waiting months for financial relief. Ige said today that 96% of initial unemployment claims have been successfully filed online.

Those who are interested may ring up the new call center at 833-901-2272 and 833-901-2275. Callers will be put in touch with individuals who will serve all claims, including regular unemployment insurance, Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation (PEUC), Unemployment Compensation for Federal Employees (UCFE) and Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Service members (UCX).

Anne E. Perreira-Eustaquio, director of state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations, said the call center will be staffed with 40% locals and the rest will be individuals from the mainland who have been trained in resolving unemployment claims.

“We know we need to be out there to address the issues that claimants are having,” said Perreira-Eustaquio, who this month replaced Scott Murakami who resigned from his post in August after being on paid leave for two months.

Ige held a press conference this afternoon to discuss the latest update on the breakdown usage of the state’s coronavirus relief funds of $1.2 billion. Ige said 98% of the $863 million of the federal funds received by the state in April has been set aside to assist with response and recovery efforts.

“We do not plan to return any of the coronavirus relief funds,” Ige said today. “We plan to use every penny.”

To date, Ige said $51

Despite the fact that, people and the financial system is moving at an unfaltering tempo but cases of individual harm remains to be on the ascent. Within the process of constructing a personal growth plan, be sure to include short-term and long-term financial targets. When making a personal development plan, don’t forget to make a schedule that allows for ample relaxation.

I believe that we are all part of the good actuality of life round us, and that the people who matter to us really feel that connection extra absolutely. One of the reasons that personal narratives come across so properly in storytelling is that they give the viewers a sensory experience, when advised correctly.

Morbidly obese and massively overweight persons report decrease ranges of self-acceptance than normal weight individuals, yet this relationship is totally mitigated by the perception that one has been discriminated in opposition to attributable to physique weight or bodily look: a more palatable reason psychologically than character or personality defect, or a job not effectively performed.

Yet it isn’t an uncommon claim right this moment— that magic for personal achieve is one way or the other unethical, immoral, selfish and an abuse of power. A black individual living in a white majority space is going to have a a lot easier time then vise versa. You need to hold transferring or else your passion for life will die and take you with it. A passionate pursuit for personal development is the only option to keep away from this tragedy.

Nonetheless, at the base of all of them, is “personal or character” development. As we speak I read a narrative of a 9 …
