Creating Medicare Advantage Plans with InnovaCare

Medicare Advantage, sometimes called, Medicare Private Health Plan serves as another option for the “Original Medicare” Parts A and B. With Medicare Advantage, you’re still on Medicare, but it’s a private Medicare plan, which has different costs, benefits, and restrictions. It must cover Original Medicare coverage and could also cover other benefits such as vision and dental.

The most common Medicare Advantage plans are Health Maintenance Organizations (HMO’s), Preferred Provider Organizations (PPo’s), and Private-Fee-for-Service (PFF’s) plans. Medicare Advantage plans are administered through private insurance companies that provide Medicare benefits.

With Medicare Advantage, you will be paying a deductible and/or co-pay, (Which are usually fixed) alongside your regular Medicare premiums. Your plan may add other premiums you have to pay for as well. You will also have an out-of-pocket maximum each year after you pay it, you will have nothing for the rest of the year. If you want a Medicare prescription drug coverage premium, sign up for a plan that covers health and drug coverage, which is called Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug Plan (MA-PD). Unless you’re in a Medical Savings Account (MSA) or a PFFS plan, you usually can’t have a Part D plan (Which is for Original Medicare plans).

Former Swiss Banker Mike Baur’s Company Is Making A Difference

Swiss banking is under attack on several fronts. The secret world of Swiss banking is being exposed, and a variety of illegal activities are surfacing. Laundering money, tax evasion, and other questionable activities are some of the issues Swiss banks are trying to justify. But there is one former Swiss banker that has left the nefarious world of Swiss banking, and he has become a leader for young Swiss entrepreneurs that have ideas and want to turn them into businesses. Mike Baur, the former Clariden Leu, and Sallfort Bank executive has formed a company that turns great ideas into thriving businesses. Baur named his new venture Bainso, and as soon as the doors of this new enterprise opened Baur was flooded with requests from people that wanted to turn concepts into businesses.

Baur spent more than 20 years of his life in the Swiss banking system, so he is well aware of the intricacies of that system. Baur’s business model is based on an open door policy where all facts and figures are presented in a clear and concise way. Baur developed an interest in entrepreneurs while he was a bank executive. Mike Baur realized that many good ideas never became businesses because of capital issues as well as operational and structural incompetence. Baur decided to become a member of the Swiss Startup Factory. Mike learned how to manage young entrepreneurs that had creative concepts, but they couldn’t put those concepts in play for several reasons.

Successful launch of the Swiss Start Up Factory

Thanks to the knowledge Baur gained from working with entrepreneurs through the Swiss Startup Factory, Baur was able to put a business plan together for Bainso that worked for a variety of business ideas. Baur focused on capital investments, operational structure, networking and other essential business tools that startup companies need to succeed.

Baur is a financial specialist. Most businesses fail because they don’t understand financial issues that can destroy good ideas. Baur wanted to help solve those issues, and he has been successful. Many of the young entrepreneurs that have signed up for Bainso services are now thriving Swiss business ventures. Some of those businesses are international competitors because of the knowledge they received from the Bainso program.

Not all great ideas make it, however. Baur is picky when it comes to identifying the entrepreneurs that have what it takes to become successful business people. Bainso doesn’t go after every entrepreneur that has an idea for a product or service. Baur is careful and only picks the concepts that have a universal appeal.

No Explanation for Collapse in Venezuela

Many of the people who live in Venezuela are asking how the government could have let the state get into such a disarray. According to Dateas, many of the shelves in grocery stores have nothing on them as there is a food shortage. Government offices close for two or more days a week in order to save the little bit of electricity that is available. Since there is a lack of food and other necessities, people have started turning to crime to get what they want and need. Some like Norka Luque think that it all started with the price of oil going up to a high amount. There has been a lack of money to pay bills that are owed to other countries. The government just doesn’t seem to care anymore about anything except making sure the people who work in the government have what they need. Over $100 billion is owed to other countries. If the debts aren’t paid and the shortages don’t improve, then there will likely not be a Venezuela any longer.
