Matthew Bussard Explains Current Medicare Coverage for Long-Term Care

Medicare expert Matthew Bussard explains what long-term care is and what Medicare covers for long-term care.

WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 / — More and more people retire every year. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 National Population Projections, by 2030, all baby boomers will be older than 65. This means that every 5th American citizen will be reaching their retirement age. The subjects of Medicare, senior care, and long-term care are now becoming more critical than ever.

Matthew Bussard, a financial services broker for Medicare users across Rhode Island, suggests that now is an excellent time for future retirees and their families to learn what is covered and not covered by Medicare.

Matthew graduated from Colby-Sawyer College and assists his clients with initial Medicare enrollment, billing, upgrading to better healthcare plans, finding a new service center, and any other service needed in between. As a financial broker, Bussard focuses on establishing trusting relationships and serving clients long-term.

Bussard says that according to the official United States government site for Medicare,, long-term care, also referred to as custodial care, is a span of services and support for individual care needs. The majority of long-term care is not classified as medical care. If someone needed assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, using the restroom, eating, moving around, getting up from or into a bed or chair, or other related actions, they would need long-term care. Most nursing home care, assisted living facilities’ care, and assistance in people’s homes are considered long-term or custodial care.

“It is important for everyone eligible for Medicare to understand what personal care needs are covered. That is why I take the time to answer healthcare benefits questions, help clients enroll in Medicare, and alleviate unnecessary medical expenses. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover long-term care if that is the only personal care an individual needs,” said Matthew Bussard.

Due to long-term care not being considered medical care, Medicare does not cover any cost for living at long-term care facilities or expenses for an in-home assistant. An exception to Medicare coverage for long-term care may be when an individual goes through a Medicare-approved agency to get home health services.

When it comes to paying for long-term care, there are options. Most people pay for costs from their pocket or utilize assets like investments or property. If those resources are ever to run dry, at that point, Medicaid could be an option. Other individuals or families look into getting long-term care insurance to help cover costs. What is covered under long-term insurance depends on the policies’ terms. Those who have served in the military can receive long-term care benefits from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

Australia’s Most Comprehensive Medicinal Cannabis Report: H1 2021

Intense medicinal cannabis product competition keeps downward pressure on prices as patient numbers grow by a factor of 15x over the past 2 years

SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA, March 31, 2021 / — FreshLeaf Analytics is excited to once again release Australia’s most comprehensive medicinal cannabis Patient, Product and Pricing Analysis.

The last 6 months were defined by intense medicinal cannabis product competition, keeping a downward pressure on prices – which is good news for patients.

This report will be the sixth major publication from FreshLeaf, which is the leading source of information, data and analysis on the sector.

– Medicinal cannabis revenue expected to exceed expectations in 2021, hitting A$200m+
– Patient numbers have grown by a factor of 15x over the past two years
– Significant increase in “Authorised Prescribers” after long period of stagnation
– Intense product competition continues as new products flood the market, keeping downward pressure on price
– Average daily dose and average monthly spend stabilise
– Slow-down in delivery format innovation with only 1 new format introduced in last 6 months
– Sizeable patient cohort expected to migrate to the pharmacy channel once low-dose CBD products become available over the counter in pharmacies
– 2021 will bring evolution in the regulatory landscape, a greater emphasis on product quality, growing investment in R&D, and further industry consolidation

Cassandra Hunt, Managing Director of FreshLeaf commented: “The Australian medicinal cannabis market continues its strong growth trajectory with revenue expected to more than double in 2021 from around $100m last year. There’s good news for patients too, with the price of medicine continuing to fall.”

Tim Drury, CEO of Southern Cannabis Holdings: “While we’re excited by the continued growth in the industry, the fact that the illegal market is still more than 10 times larger than the legal market means that we still have a long way to go before we can consider that Australia has the right ecosystem for helping patients”.

The report has also been welcomed by the sector, with key players commenting:

Dr Mark Hardy, Addiction Specialist and CA Clinics Medical Director commented: “When you consider that there were only about 3,000 active patients just two years ago, and that FreshLeaf projects that active patient numbers may climb to 75,000 by the end of 2021, clearly more people have been able to gain access to legal medicinal cannabis. It is of the utmost importance that patients have treatment options, and these figures suggest that cannabinoid medicine is increasingly being accepted as a viable option by the mainstream.”

Clare Barker, GM of Entoura said: "The proliferation of medicinal cannabis products to a total of 190 now available for Australian physicians to prescribe seems like a positive for patient choice on the surface, but it also makes it harder for doctors to differentiate between them. This means that product and delivery format innovation is more important than ever. We brought the only new format in the last 6 months to market in the form of chewable tablets, which are proving to be convenient for active patients and may be more palatable for those who dislike the taste of oils or for children”.

And Peter Crock, MCIA Chairman added: "The report shows that the industry is maturing and local product is coming on stream. This will improve with regulatory reforms currently being worked through. The increase in patients also demonstrates the valuable role for medicinal cannabis and reinforces how important it is that the evidence base catches up, and we can bring products through the registration pathway”.

COVID-19 Has Families Talking About Their Wishes for Their Estate

Female Founders  of Trustate

Now is the time for families to sit down and share their wishes for their estates once they have passed on.

We help executors navigate the complex and stressful process of settling the estate of a loved one, regardless of circumstance.”

— Trustate

UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 / — In the last 12 months, more and more families have made time to clean closets, covert old video tapes to digital format and organize “their papers.”

“We have seen families disagree and experience frustration around what they believe their loved one wanted for their estate and having everything in order ahead of time, allows families to grieve without the stress of not having clear direction,” said Trustate Co-founder & COO Tara Faquir. “The key is to be prepared and have systems in place to make the process more efficient.”

Here are three things you can do to help your family avoid frustrations:
1. Call a meeting – Individuals can avoid frustration by speaking up and sharing their wishes and details outlined in their Will, particularly with beneficiaries and those making health decisions on their behalf. It is helpful for your beneficiaries to hear from you directly as you structure your estate, and if it is a more complicated estate, then having your lawyer participate is a good idea.
2. Communicate clearly – Let your friends and family know ahead of time how you want your estate structured. If you have made decisions about how to treat your family and friends, letting them while you are still with them, provides an opportunity for them to process the information. Note that this could open the door for them to try to convince you to make changes, resulting in an uncomfortable situation or worse, lasting family feuds. That is why communicating clearly is key to the family understanding your wishes.
3. Leave a note, letter, or a video – If you are not able to speak directly with your beneficiaries, family members and friends, then leaving a letter or video intended for the beneficiaries and family members to explain why you designed the estate plan a certain way is very helpful. The topic of your passing can be unpleasant for everyone and some family members would prefer to avoid it all together, but it is easier to accept when they read or see you sharing your wishes. At Trustate we strongly urge you to consult with an attorney before preparing something like that, as such writings, videos, and voice recordings are admissible as evidence (including any rough drafts, or deleted outtakes).

“If you believe your estate plan can cause drama among family members, we recommend you consult with an experienced estate attorney to coordinate an ‘all hands-on deck’ family meeting, with witnesses and that attorney present, to discuss your estate plan and set expectations. This way, everyone could hear the same information, at the same time, in front of objective observers. By choosing to share your estate plan now, you can get those discussions out of the way and keep everyone on the same page, whether they like it or not,” said Leah Del Percio, Founder and CEO of Trustate

Communicating ahead of time can bring relief and clarity to a family as they work through a very emotional process after a loved one has passed. Trustate is a unique estate administration concierges service that helps families deal with a loved one’s estate once they have passed on and allows the family to grief without the stress of the day-to-day administrative tasks of closing an estate. Trustate is where human empathy and technology meet. They are not a traditional technology firm, as their technology enables their estate concierges to complete estate-focused tasks less expensively if they were done manually.

Both Leah Del Percio and Tara Faquir are available for interviews on the topic of general estate supports and full estate administration services, once a loved one has passed.

Parkinson's Education: Free Webinar Series

Wisconsin Parkinson Association provides hope, community, support, and resources for people with Parkinson disease and their loved ones. Learn more at

Paul & Diana Beder live in Waupun, WI. When COVID hit and it wasn’t safe for Paul to attend classes at his local gym, they joined Wisconsin Parkinson Association’s free classes on Facebook Live and Zoom 3 times each week. Exercise is the only way to slow

Wisconsin Parkinson Association is offering a free webinar series for people with Parkinson's.

BROOKFIELD, WISCONSIN, USA, March 31, 2021 / — Parkinson disease is the fastest growing neurological disorder in the US. Over 1 million people have Parkinson’s – more than MS, ALS, and Muscular Dystrophy combined – and in Wisconsin, over 20,000 people live with Parkinson’s.

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month, and Wisconsin Parkinson Association is sharing crucial education and resources for people who have Parkinson’s, as well as their loved ones.

“Wisconsin Parkinson Association hosts education programs in-person and online throughout the year,” said Gary Garland, executive director for Wisconsin Parkinson Association. “Even if you can’t physically travel to participate, we can bring the education right to your living room.”

This free education includes a webinar series for people who are recently diagnosed with the disease. April 12-16 from noon until 1:00pm each day, Wisconsin Parkinson Association will be hosting a webinar on life with Parkinson’s. Topics will include symptoms and how Parkinson’s is diagnosed, treatment options, mental health issues, and the importance of exercise.

“These programs can really provide a lifeline for someone who just received a Parkinson’s diagnosis,” said Garland. “It’s important for them to know that they are not alone, and this disease is not a death sentence."

The primary symptoms of Parkinson disease are resting tremor, muscle rigidity, slowness of movement, and postural instability. Patients may also experience problems with swallowing, smaller handwriting, constipation, soft or slow speech, stooped posture, depression, and anxiety.

While some patients know where to turn or how to find resources to help them deal with their new diagnosis, many people find themselves feeling alone, hopeless, and without support. Now more than ever, it is crucial for patients and caregivers to stay connected to their peers, find relief from their symptoms, and educate themselves.

To register for the free webinar series, or to find more resources about Parkinson’s, visit or call 414-312-6990.

Cherie Devivo Offers These Tips For Working With People With Autism

Cherie Devivo Offers These Tips For Working With People With Autism

Cherie Devivo Offers These Tips For Working With People With Autism

Cherie Devivo

Cherie Devivo

Wondering how you can be respectful and mindful while working with autistic people? Cherie Devivo has some suggestions.

RARITAN, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 / — The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that over 2 million American adults, roughly 5.4 million people, have an autism spectrum condition. Autism is often misunderstood and many Americans with a condition go on to enjoy independent, fruitful lives. That said, if you’re not used to working around autistic people, you may face some initial challenges. That’s why Cherie Devivo is going to offer some insights.

“If you’ve never worked with an autistic person before, you may feel a bit stressed or may worry over what to do,” Cherie Devivo points out. “That said, a touch of empathy and understanding can go a long way. This is true not just in regard to autism but many other things as well, such as culture, age, and the like.”
One key issue while working with autistic individuals is to respect their personal space. Many people like their “me” time and “me” space. When it comes to autistic coworkers, this space maybe even more vital and if it’s not respected it could lead to conflicts. And it’s often wise to avoid physical contact, like say a pat on the back, unless you know a given individual is comfortable with said gestures.

When you’re in the workplace, how you present yourself emotionally can have a big impact on the people around you. If you’re visibly angry, for example, it could put other people on edge even if they were previously calm and relaxed.

This is true for many people, but it can be especially important while working alongside autistic people. Emotional stress can quickly pile up, making it difficult for everyone to keep their emotions under control.

Cherie Devivo Talks About Consistency and Avoiding Excessive Stimuli

One thing that can benefit every employee and coworker is consistency. If a manager is inconsistent in how they relate to people, make decisions, and otherwise act, it’ll put other team members on edge. A lack of consistency and predictability can be especially hard on autistic people and can increase anxiety.

“Predictability and consistency can ease tension for anyone,” Cherie Devivo says. “By being more predictable, you can reduce anxiety and second-guessing. Anxiety can exacerbate just about any communication issue and raise tensions in the office. It’s best to reduce anxiety when possible.”

Too many stimuli can overwhelm some autistic people, and indeed people in general. This may mean crowded rooms, packed conferences, public confrontations, and the like. Many employees can be overwhelmed by too many stimuli, but autistic individuals are especially vulnerable.

“You want your office and workplace to be a calm place,” Cherie Devivo suggests. “If you have reason to believe that employees might not want to be in the spotlight or places with a lot of stimuli, it’s best to give them their needed space.”

Keep all the above in mind, and you may be able to improve relations with autistic coworkers.

New Patient Education Program on Cancer Oral Health Care Noted Nursing Educator, Judith Haber, Ph.D, APRN.

“Oral health side effects have significant physical and emotional negative consequences for patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or immunotherapy that can affect patients’ quality of life.”

— Nursing Educator, Judith Haber, Ph.D., APRN

GoMo Health in collaboration with the Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP) Program has added oral care patient education to its evidence-based Concierge Care® oncology digital therapeutic, filling a much-needed gap in addressing oral care management as part of patient-focused cancer clinical pathways. Recent studies show that the incremental costs alone of oral mucositis was approximately $ 5000–$30,000 among patients receiving radiation therapy and $3700 per cycle among patients receiving chemotherapy.

“Oral health side effects have significant physical and emotional negative consequences for patients undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or immunotherapy that affect patients’ health and quality of life and can lead to increased adverse events and cost. However, oral health is frequently overlooked in clinical pathways and outpatient care,” says noted Nursing Educator, Judith Haber, Ph.D., APRN, FAAN, the NYU Ursula Springer Leadership Professor in Nursing and Executive Director of the Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP) Program.

The Concierge program provides oral care management messaging to oncology patients to prevent the onset of oral side effects from their treatment and for those who may already be experiencing issues. Once indicating their oral care issues through the Concierge program’s version of the NCCN Distress Thermometer and Problem List, the How Are You Doing?TM survey, patients automatically receive support and actionable tips to relieve discomfort from symptoms like dry mouth, mouth sores, bleeding gums, and gum disease.

Nursing Educator, Judith Haber, Ph.D, APRN, is available for interviews via Zoom-SKYPE-FaceTime
Contact: Fred Yaeger (914) 525-9198

The oral care content adds valuable resources to the existing Concierge Care program that is working in tandem with nurse navigation, pharmacy, and social work to help guide a patient and their family through emotional, social/practical, and physical challenges during cancer journey. For more information about the GoMo Health Oncology Digital Therapeutic, click here.

About GoMo Health: GoMo Health® applies a proprietary, evidence-based science of engagement, BehavioralRx®, to our cloud-based digital therapeutic, Concierge Care®, to actively extend care plans, and provide resources and support in a person’s “lived” environment – enhancing outpatient care and impact. This outpatient care delivery model integrates support for psychosocial and physical needs to create personalized, behaviorally based care plans that empower patients in their own care management and healthy decision making. Connecting with patients via its’ Telehealth Triple Play™, GoMo Health using an intelligent mobile BOT to collect and triage patient data via home medical devices, conduct in the moment “conversations”, and gather electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO). This has proven to modify behaviors of patients with chronic and complex conditions worldwide, resulting in significant improvement in health outcomes and adherence, and decreased costs of care for providers, hospitals, health plans, employers, and life science companies.

The Oral Health Nursing Education and Practice (OHNEP) Program, at New York University’s School of Nursing, is a core partner of the National Interprofessional Initiative on Oral Health (NIIOH), and is a unique national initiative that aims to enhance the nursing profession’s interprofessional role in oral health and its links to overall health in both academic and clinical settings. Funded by the DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement and the Arcora Foundation, OHNEP aims to integrate interprofessional oral health content and competencies for the nation’s 4.2 million nurses in undergraduate and graduate nursing programs through faculty and preceptor development, curriculum integration, and establishment of “best practices” in clinical settings.

Phase Two Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre Announcement

The Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Foundation is positioning its new Global Heart Centre as a transformative potential across the region, philanthropic support.

Your Gift will Save LIVES. Please join us today and add your name as a legacy in Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre. Together we will save lives.”

— Reda S. Athanasios


The Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Foundation is positioning its new Cairo-based Global Heart Centre as a revolutionary project with transformative potential across the region, making it an appealing candidate for philanthropic support.

The Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Foundation Board is pleased to announce the commencement of phase two in the construction of the Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre-Cairo (MYGHC). Located in the modern 6th of October City, the center is expected to open doors in 2023 and provide free-of-charge, world-class heart care to underprivileged patients. It was a needed expansion to cope with the overwhelming demand facing the highly successful Aswan Heart Centre. MYGHC is a high-impact prospect for philanthropic support and is projected to transform the heartcare landscape by strongly impacting heartcare outcomes for the most vulnerable, particularly children, across Egypt, and the broader Middle East, and Africa.

The work of Prof Magdi Yacoub and his medical teams at the Aswan Heart Centre has been covered extensively in global media, and the tremendous impact of that revolutionary endeavor has given our hospital and its broad mission exposure across high-profile media outlets across the world. The Aswan Heart Centre, and its continuing success, occurred through our successful relationships with our supporters. The Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Foundation established and nurtured proud and lasting partnerships with philanthropists across the United States and beyond.

“It was our honor to have this opportunity to be part of Prof. Magdi Yacoub’s humanitarian mission to help our needy fellow Egyptians,” expressed Hoda & Cameel Halim of Chicago, long-time supporters of the Aswan Heart Centre. “Prof. Yacoub has given us a valuable lesson in giving, and we hope that all of us around the world will join him in making his continuing work highly successful.”

Chairman of the Board, Magdy Ishak, said, “The Board and the management team are proud of what we have achieved with partners like Mr. and Mrs. Halim and others. We believe that Aswan Heart Centre, with its successful integration of quality clinical care, innovative research, and excellent training in Egypt, serves as an inspiration to others of what can be possible for the future of global healthcare. Our new center will extend our capacity and reach both in Egypt and Africa.”

At this point, we are seeking philanthropic patronage for the Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre-Cairo. This new Center in Cairo, the most significant metropolitan hub in the entire region, vastly expands our impact. Upon its completion in 2023, the new Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre will be offering free-of-charge cardiovascular services with a capacity of 120,000 outpatients and 12,000 procedures annually. It will host five operating rooms and five catheterization laboratories. It will include a hybrid room, a state-of-the-art imaging center, world-class 5000-square meter research and innovation laboratories, a 4000-square meter education and training facility, as well as an Emergency Department.

About Magdi Yacoub Heart Foundation
The Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Foundation–A U.S.-based 501c3 charity–was founded by Professor Sir Magdi Yacoub. The MYGHF is committed to changing the most vulnerable health outcomes in Egypt and the broader Middle East and Africa, particularly children, by providing comprehensive, advanced cardiac care available to all people in need, free of charge. The Aswan Heart Centre (AHC) is a facility operated and funded with the support of MYGHF. It has achieved regional and international recognition as a Center of Excellence for the treatment and research of cardiovascular diseases. The Aswan Heart Centre (AHC) and the new Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre Cairo are operated and funded with the support of MYGHF. Both centers depend on philanthropic support and provide all their services free of charge.
