Today, the Obama Administration launched the “Healthy Self” campaign, to help encourage healthy lifestyles and connect people to the coverage and care they need. Here at iCan we also feel that leading a healthy lifestyle is important and encourage others to make simple changes to help change your lives for the better.
Wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being; an active, lifelong process of becoming aware of choices and making decisions toward a more balanced and fulfilling life. This process can lead to a healthier state of well-being that allows individuals and communities to thrive.
Earlier this month, Secretary Burwell traveled to San Francisco and met with private sector leaders on countless of issues including how to better transform our healthcare delivery system and implementation of the Affordable Care Act. One of those meetings was held at Rock Health, an early-stage venture fund company that supports startups of the next generation of technologies transforming healthcare. During her visit, Secretary Burwell focused on how the department could better support entrepreneurs and innovation.

I make 40k per year. Am I eligible for a government subsidy?

We received the following testimonial from Katie:
When the company that I was working for started laying employees off, I was relieved that I wasn’t one of the casualties of their corporate downsizing. Fortunately, I was spared. That is, until they had to have a second round, and then unfortunately, I wasn’t spared.
I recently read an article on CNN.com about a woman who lost 140 pounds by being hypnotized. Granted, it took her 5 years to achieve her goal, but slow and steady wins the race as they say, right? Nevertheless, it blew my mind. Could one legitimately avoid exercising and eating right and still drop unwanted weight? Or, had she been hypnotized to enjoy the taste of broccoli and the smell of yoga mats (and other dreaded good habits) instead?! ;P
Despite increasing healthcare costs across the country, there are many people who are still willing to have elective surgeries, meaning they have surgery by choice, not out of necessity. And, while some go under the knife to remedy a medical or physical abnormality, there are those who succumb for reasons of vanity, wherein they simply want to conform their bodies to an ideal physical image that they have in their minds.
With fall quickly approaching and daylight hours starting to wane, the question you will need to ask yourself is, Will I still get enough vitamin D each day? According to recent studies, there’s a good chance you won’t. In 2009, researchers reported that the levels of vitamin D in the U.S. population had dropped between the years of 1988 and 1994, and then again between 2001 and 2004.
I’m uninsured. I know I need coverage, and I’m told I will probably qualify for a subsidy. But when I called my state’s Exchange, I was told I couldn’t get insurance until “Open Enrollment,” and even then the coverage wouldn’t start until 2015! What am I supposed to do, stay uninsured until then? - Doug P., San Diego
