PTSD USA Camp Hope

 

THE PTSD FOUNDATION OF AMERICA’S MISSION


 

 

  • PTSD Foundation of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring to our combat veterans and their families with post traumatic stress. Many warriors are coming home with visible wounds; countless others are coming home with scars we cannot see, wounded souls from witnessing the horrors of war over and over again – PTSD. We feel it is our duty as Americans to help these mighty warriors and their families adjust and find their new normal.
  • It is our turn to step up with other excellent existing community organizations and help those that have fought and sacrificed so much for us. We are faith-based in our approach and have a great history of providing hope and healing to those experiencing the unseen wounds of war. We offer a safe place where no one is judged, everyone is supported, and everything a warrior says or is revealed is confidential within the group.
  • We would like the opportunity to train and/or help form groups within your community for warriors & their families to reach out to. Our teams consist of Veterans, Active and Reserve Service Members as well as civilians that have a heart for the military and their families. We have active, reserve and/or veterans from every war up to World War II that are coming to our groups. Warriors that we have worked with have learned how to heal and cope with PTSD to find their “new normal” and are now are reaching out to other warriors to let them know that there is hope in the darkness and they are NOT alone.

Medicare For All could die in 2020 as private insurers add seniors

 Health insurers are expected to make it more difficult on Presidential candidates pushing single payer versions of “Medicare for All” after they added hundreds of thousands of seniors to their private Medicare Advantage plans this year. New benefits for seniors under Medicare Advantage began Wednesday, the first day of the 2020 New Year, in what has already been a record for the number of health plans participating in a program that offers seniors the same benefits as traditional Medicare plus extras like preventative care and outpatient healthcare services.  

3 drug pricing policy experiments to watch in 2020

 Politicians spent the better part of 2019 bickering over the best way to lower drug prices. But in the meantime, states, advocates — even the drug and insurance industries — were devising novel strategies for solving this perplexing challenge. 2020 will be the year many of those experimental ideas are tested. If they pan out, they’ll undoubtedly be models for other states or companies — and perhaps serve as inspiration for Washington, too. STAT looks at three of the most interesting ideas 

There is no free lunch — even in health care

  Obamacare was supposed to fix all of this — so why are so many Americans still uninsured, even when they qualify for subsidized and even free insurance? According to a new analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation, “28% of uninsured individuals who could shop on the Marketplace, or 4.7 million people nationwide, are eligible to purchase a bronze plan with $0 premiums after subsidies in 2020. This figure is similar to 2019, when 27% of uninsured individuals, or 4.2 million people, could purchase a no-premium bronze plan.”  

Many Californians can't afford health insurance. Will 2020 reforms provide relief?

 Even with access to health insurance at a historic high in the state, a growing share of uninsured Californians say they struggle to afford coverage, according to new survey results. The new data show the share of people in the state who say cost is their main reason for being uninsured inched upward for the third consecutive year in 2018, according to UCLA’s California Health Interview Survey. Nearly four out of every 10 uninsured residents, or 37%, said the price of insurance was the leading reason for not having coverage.  

Pharmaceutical companies celebrated New Year's by raising the prices on more than 250 drugs

  Drugmakers including Bristol-Myers Squibb, Gilead Sciences, and Biogen hiked U.S. list prices on more than 50 drugs on Wednesday, bringing total New Year's Day drug-price increases to more than 250, according to data analyzed by the healthcare research firm 3 Axis Advisors. Reuters reported on Tuesday that drugmakers including Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, and Sanofi SA were planning to increase prices on more than 200 drugs in the United States on Jan. 1. Nearly all of the price increases are below 10%, and the median price increase is about 5%, according to 3 Axis.
