    This past weekend was the sixtieth anniversary of the signing of the Korean War armistice, ending three years of warfare on the Korean peninsula that saw the deaths of nearly 37,000 members of the U.S. military, with some 8,100 more still counted as missing. (Note that 415,000 South Korean soldiers died in the conflict, which is more than ten times the number of American soldiers who died-a fact that doesn't seem to make it into television and movie portrayals of the war.) It's a death toll that's hard to fathom, and would in all likelihood be found completely unacceptable by the American population today. From 2003 through 2012, the U.S. suffered 4,486 military fatalities in Iraq, and from 2001 to 2013, the military death toll in Afghanistan has been 2,255-over 8,000 coalition troops have died in both conflicts. Nearly 1.8 million Americans served in the Korean War, and over 5.7 million Americans were in the service, whether in Korea or elsewhere, during that time; CNN estimates that there are 2.275 million veterans still alive from that era.

    Korea, however, was a different kind of conflict. Americans were tired of war and tired of a conflict that left both sides in trenches at the end of hostilities nearly where they were when the conflict started. President Obama's speech honoring Korean War veterans last weekend was unusual, laced with the odd, somewhat jingoistic statement that "that war was no tie, Korea was a victory." That speech had the president offering Korean War veterans, now in their late 70s, 80s, and beyond, the "highest tribute" that they should have received at the time of the armistice.

    What could, or should, be the highest tribute to Korean War veterans now, six decades after the armistice? We can think of several arenas for White House and the Congress to explore that would honor Korean War veterans and stand as valuable correction and reevaluation of the vets' oft-stated rueful lament that their comrades had to "die for a tie.

    Senior citizens: Data released by the Veterans Administration in the spring indicated that a significantly larger proportion of male war veterans were senior citizens than male non-veterans:

    These statistics would imply that one of the best things the U.S. can do now for Korean War veterans is to ensure that they provide adequate funding and support for programs for the elderly and, given the proportion of the living 20 million veterans older than 85, for the frail elderly. If our nation is really committed to helping elderly Korean War veterans, it would be reversing the devastating sequestration cuts in the Meals on Wheels program that provides meals and other services to the homebound elderly, especially in rural areas. The nation would be assiduously protecting Medicare from cuts and trying to expand Medicaid; remember that there are millions of senior citizens who are considered "duals," so poor that they are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid simultaneously, and many in the age and health category of the frail elderly. To honor Korean War veterans, the U.S. wouldn't tolerate efforts like those of Governor Bobby Jindal to cut Louisiana's programs that help senior citizens by obtaining free medicines from pharmaceutical companies. The list could go on and on, but you get the point.

    Rural America: While even the White House and the U.S. Department of Agriculture can't get the numbers correct, it appears, according to the intrepid reporters at the Daily Yonder, that rural residents enlist in the military at a rate 21.5 percent above the national average. The band of brothers and sisters who comprise the U.S. military today, much as they did during the Korean War, comes disproportionately from rural America. Assuming that a good proportion of veterans return to their home communities, and others of retirement age choose the lower costs of rural living, the U.S. would honor elderly Korean War veterans by making sure that the nation doesn't lessen its commitment to, and reinvestment in, rural America. Several reports show that sequestration has had a disproportionately negative effect on rural hospitals (including here, here, and here). Similarly, rental housing assistance in rural communities is going to take a huge hit in the second year of sequestration cuts, according to Moises Loza of the Housing Assistance Council. Defending programs for rural America, by virtue of geography, would benefit Korean War veterans.

    Helping all veterans: It would be hard to imagine that Korean War veterans aren't concerned, or sometimes aghast, at assistance to the veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq as they return stateside. Last year, the VA reported that 45 percent of veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan were seeking compensation for service-related injuries-more than double the rate of filings by veterans from the Gulf War-and, on average, for eight to nine ailments at a time (compared to four for Vietnam veterans receiving compensation, and two for World War II and Korean War veterans). Although the Veterans Administration was suffering from a huge backlog of claims as of last year, the VA has made progress in cutting into the volume of pending claims in the past year. However, still-pending claims in May of 2013 were almost twice as many as in May of 2009, and claims classified as backlogged were four times as high. The progress that the VA has made isn't due to the administration's internal impetus for improvement, but as a result of the scathing criticisms from associations of Afghanistan and Iraq war veterans as well as members of Congress. What would honor the veterans of the Korean War would be a successful reform of the VA's longstanding dysfunctional culture.

    The problems at the VA are being addressed, and other problems faced by U.S. veterans, particularly the high unemployment rate of veterans, have begun to recede. But improvements at the VA, while demonstrable, still leave 800,000 pending claims and 500,000 backlogged claims. Unemployment for veterans, once higher than the general public, is now relatively equivalent to the unemployment rate of non-veterans-too high to be sure for any economy, and too dependent on low-wage, part-time jobs, but an improvement in veterans' conditions nonetheless. If we want to honor 80- and 90-year-old Korean War vets, our nation might choose to ensure that the veterans of today's wars get the assistance and support they need to successfully integrate back into domestic life.-Rick Cohen

    "I don't know how we're going to manage." Polly was in tears. "We were doing just fine. The house was paid off, and we had saved enough to get by."

    "I had to stop driving because of my eyes, but Harry did all that until his stroke. Now, I can't leave him alone. We can't afford assisted living or even help at home." She started to break down. Harry used his good arm to rub his wife's shoulder.

    "Were either of you veterans?" I asked.

    "Harry was - during the Korean War. But he was stationed in Japan."

    "That's OK," I smiled. "As long as he served during wartime and has a good military discharge, he might be eligible for the VA Aid and Attendance program."

    "What's that?" Polly asked, her eyes brightening.

    "Let me have Janet, my social worker, talk to you."

    In our office, the VA Aid and Attendance program is the best thing since sliced bread with butter and jam. It has helped many of our veterans and surviving spouses of veterans pay for care at home or in assisted living.

    But many families who are struggling to care for an ailing veteran have never heard of it, or they think that it is only for career military retirees or veterans who have a service-related disability.

    The VA Aid and Attendance program can provide up to $1,703 a month in aid for a single veteran, $2,019 for a married veteran or $1,094 a month for a surviving spouse. This helps pay for in-home care or assisted living.

    Eligibility depends on income and assets.

    Janet took my place in the exam room. Now, our couple was smiling through the tears - finally a ray of hope and help.

    "First," she started, "you'll need some information when you go to apply. Like a copy of your discharge papers. You can track these down online. You'll need financial information like proof of income, banking and investment statements, your annual Social Security Award Letter, that sort of thing.

    "Then you'll need to gather your medical expenses - insurance premiums, medication costs, anything that's not covered by Medicare or Medicaid, including payment for caregivers. Also, make a list of all your doctors and the hospitals you have been admitted to over the past year."

    "That's not hard," Harry squeezed Polly's hand. "She's a great organizer."

    "For some folks, it's a little daunting," Janet said. "This program even serves surviving spouses of veterans, and they have to include their marriage license, spouse's death certificates, etc."

    Janet continued, "The doctor will fill out the physician's statement. It explains that the patient requires assistance with activities of daily living, like medication management, meal preparation, bathing and dressing, and whether they are home bound, bed bound, blind or have dementia."

    "It may take a few months before your application is approved, so be patient. Until then, we will work on getting you some affordable private duty help at home."

    "What if we have questions?" Polly asked.

    "Call our friends at the Brevard County Veterans Service Team. They are at the County Government Center in Viera. Their phone number is 321-633-2012."

    Harry and Polly breathed a sigh of relief as they left the office.

Businesses Focus on Region's Aging Population - 0 views

    Using a moisture sensor, a wireless system and a mobile phone, Kevin Wong, the chief executive of Ckicom Technology Ltd, explains how this new technology can alert caregivers when they should change the diapers of elderly people in nursing homes.
    As the rapid aging of Asia's population creates challenges for governments and societies, new opportunities are emerging for businesses serving the needs of the elderly and their caretakers.
    While population aging is a global phenomenon, the Asian-Pacific region is expected to see a particularly drastic demographic change over the next few decades. The number of elderly persons in the region-already home to more than half of the world's population aged 60 and over-is expected to triple to more than 1.2 billion by 2050, when one in four people in the region will be over 60 years old, according to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
    Across Asia, large corporations and entrepreneurs in various industries are racing to come up with new products and services for the elderly, while health-care-related businesses are seeing soaring demand. Among various fields of health care for the elderly, nursing homes represent one of the fastest-growing sectors.

Home Instead Senior Care Launches Senior Fraud Awareness Campaign - 1 views

  •  
    Home Instead Senior Care, the nation's largest provider of in-home

    companion care services, today announced the launch of its Protect Seniors

    from FraudSM program. This new initiative empowers older Americans and

    their families by arming them with the information and tools they need to

    help protect themselves from con artists targeting the elderly.

    These scammers are proving successful with victims of elder financial abuse

    currently estimated to experience an annual financial loss of $2.9 billion.*

    Often retired, less mobile, more reliant on others and home for unannounced

    calls or visits, seniors are frequently perceived as "easy prey" by scammers.

    Seniors are also quickly becoming the largest population segment. Coupled,

    these trends increase the risk for a number of crimes -particularly those

    involving identity theft, Medicaid/Medicare fraud and financial exploitation.

    "Increasingly, scams targeting seniors are a threat to the financial stability and

    safety of our nation's seniors, putting many at risk for losing their life savings

    or homes-not to mention their trust in others," said Jisella Dolan, Vice

    President and General Counsel, Home Instead, Inc., the franchisor for Home

    Instead Senior Care. "But there are easy steps seniors and their families can

    take to help prevent these crimes. Protect Seniors from Fraud will help reduce

    the risk by educating potential victims."

    The Protect Seniors from Fraud program, developed with expert advice from

    senior-crime prevention organization the National Association of Triads, Inc.,

    provides a number of free online resources, including a Senior Fraud

    Protection Kit with scam prevention tips, risk assessment tools, and advice on

    what to do if you or a loved one is scammed. Specific precautions found in

    these materials, which seniors and their families can implement to help avoid

    falling victim to con artists, include:

N. Korean refugees investigated for insurance fraud - blogger - kaboodle - ZIMBIO - 0 views

  •  
    SEOUL (AFP) - South Korean police said on Tuesday they were investigating 27 North Korean refugees for swindling private insurance firms out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in bogus medical claims.Police said the refugees faked illness in collusion with hospitals to claim a total of 1.04 billion won (S$1.16 million) from insurance firms between 2007 and 2010.While listed as hospitalised, they frequented saunas, restaurants and even nightclubs. The scam also involved a 71-year-old doctor and five hospital employees who conspired with the refugees to claim a separate 104 million won from the state health insurance agency, police said.Police are also investigating two brokers on suspicion of helping the refugees send some of the proceeds to relatives in the North.

Kickbacks, Honest Services, and Health Care Fraud after Skilling - kaboodle - zimbio - 0 views

  •  
    Joan H. Krause

    University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill - School of Law

    August 8, 2012

    Annals of Health Law, Vol. 21, No. 1, 2012
    UNC Legal Studies Research Paper No. 2018589

    Abstract:
    This essay considers how the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Skilling v. United States, which limited the situations in which mail and wire fraud cases may be premised on violations of the "intangible right to honest services," has the potential to alter the future of health care fraud litigation. While Skilling is widely perceived to have closed the door to several types of common mail and wire fraud prosecutions, this may not turn out to be the case in health care. In health care, the renewed focus on kickbacks as evidence of an honest services breach instead may dovetail nicely with both the Obama Administration's emphasis on criminal health care fraud enforcement and the jurisprudence of the Medicare & Medicaid Anti-Kickback Statute. This kind of leverage may prove very difficult for prosecutors to resist, and most certainly will require changes in the way the health law bar approaches common Anti-Kickback concerns.

    Increased collaboration has yielded significant results through the HEAT partnership. Since the creation of HEAT in 2009, the Medicare Fraud Strike Force operations have expanded from two to nine locations throughout the United States, including Chicago. Strike Force operations expanded to Chicago in February 2011 and since that time, charges have been filed against more than 35 defendants in the Northern District of Illinois for offenses related to health care fraud. Overall, in fiscal year 2011, strike force operations in nine locations charged a total of more than 320 defendants for allegedly billing more than $1 billion in false claims.
    In February, as a result of HEAT and strike force actions, a Dallas-area physician and the office manager of his medical practice, along with five owners of home health agencies, were arrested on charges related to their alleged participation in a nearly $375 million health care scheme involving fraudulent claims for home health services. In conjunction with this action, CMS imposed payment suspensions against 78 home health agencies in the Dallas area.

    The decision of US to let the blind human rights activist Chen Guangcheng return into China's fold following his escape from authorities is straining ties between the two countries as diplomatic dialogues opened in Beijing.

    The 40-year old Chen who is now considered a dissident became an international human rights inspiration to many Chinese after earning the ire of the local government for exposing forced abortions in line with the country's one-child policy. The self-taught lawyer took to the US embassy after his escape, apparently to ask for help but was eventually ushered into the Beijing Hospital.

    According to a senior official's statement to Springhill Care Group, Chen has indeed went into the embassy that day and has requested for medical treatment for his injured foot. American medical personnel have then conducted medical tests and made appropriate treatment during the time he was there.

    Immediately after the incident, the Chinese government has expressed its disapproval about the entire affair, demanding an apology from the US for taking Chen in.

    "What the U.S. side should do now is neither to continue misleading the public and making every excuse to shift responsibility and conceal its wrongdoing, nor to interfere in the domestic affairs of China," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin.

    This incident came just when the US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is visiting Beijing in a meeting with Chinese officials on security and trade talks. And although no one mentioned Chen's name, it is evident in their statements that the incident is on the spotlight as the 2 nations struggle to maintain common ground.

    Clinton said in her opening statement, "The United States believes that no state can legitimately deny the universal rights that belong to every human being - or punish those who exercise them. A China that protects the rights of all its citizens will be a stronger, more prosperous partner for the United State

Springhill CareGroup: UN Sanctions 3 North Korean Firms - 0 views

  •  
    United Nation's Security Council has decided to freeze the assets of 3 North Korean companies and consequently ban them from global trade because of their involvement in exporting, procuring and financing nuclear-related weapons.

    UN's sanctions committee has named the 3 blacklisted firms as Korea Heungjin Trading Company, Amroggang Development Banking Corporation and Green Pine Conglomerate.

    Amroggang is a financing company involved in ballistic missile sales and is related to Tanchon Commercial Bank, which was blacklisted in 2009 for its participation in selling of arms. Green Pine is the firm which took over most of the activities of the Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation, North Korea's primary arms dealer that was blacklisted in 2009. It manufactures military maritime crafts, missile systems, torpedoes and also provides technical assistance to defense firms. Meanwhile, Korea Heungjin Trading Company was utilized to manufacture equipment with missile design applications and had been used for trading by the Korea Mining Development Trading Corporation.

    The Security Council committee has also approved more technology and items that would be banned for transfer from and to North Korea, adding to its list that contains North Korea's nuclear-related resources.

    Originally, South Korea, Japan, US and the European Union proposed to Security Council's committee a list of 40 North Korean firms they wanted to sanction but China blocked the deal, resulting in only the approval of 3 companies. China usually opposes economic sanctions and is an ally of North Korea, though it had previously approved sanctions against the latter in its 2009 nuclear test.

    Before the final decision of the committee, Springhill Group Home discovered that the companies included in the sanction list included 5 individuals and 8 more firms. The UN sanction committee works on a consensus basis, meaning that any individual member of the council is capable of blocking an

Gary Mason's Blogspot - Group of Springhill South Korea: The Laziest Scams in Internet ... - 0 views

  •  
    GROUP OF SPRINGHILL SOUTH KOREA - DIGG-- A certain "Sehwan Jung" in South Korea has been sending a number of desperate requests for funds over Twitter: "I am in urgent need of money. Can you lend me 500,000 dollars?I will make it up to you later." A diabolical plot, indeed, though Mr. Jung's scam is unlikely to work. For one, people can see everything someone sends on Twitter and quickly realize he's sent the exact same message over and over. For another, he is tweeting almost exclusively to celebrities, including Channing Tatum, Rosario Dawson, Carly Simon, journalist Nicholas Kristof (who today sarcastically answered, "Sure!"), and the foreign minister of Bahrain, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.
    "Now this one is a real winner," says Dan Ring, a spokesperson for Boston-based data protection company Sophos. "Sehwan Jung's list of celebrities is almost as entertaining and as random as his actual request, and it's one of the more optimistic requests out there. I hope there's no way someone will fall for this."

    The "Sehwan gambit" joins the following examples as one of the laziest scams in Internet history.

    * "JOHN" fails to mention what he even wants to con you out of:
    Subject: what are you sale
    Greetings,My name is JOHN, i am highly interested in buying your{ what you want to sale } from you ,I will like you to give me the FINAL ASKING price and the lastes condition,also i will like you to scan the pics for me for proper verifycation.

    Guns don't kill people; people kill people; and people with guns kill even more people.

    They also save more people who would otherwise be at the mercy of the criminals.

    SPRINGHILL TOWNSHIP, Pa. - An 85-year-old great-grandmother in Fayette County busted a would-be burglar by pulling a gun, then forcing him to call for help while she kept him in her sights.

    http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/17232825/detail.htm…

    Venus Ramey, 82, confronted a man on her farm in south-central Kentucky last week after she saw her dog run into a storage building where thieves had previously made off with old farm equipment.

    Ramey said the man told her he would leave. "I said, 'Oh, no you won't,' and I shot their tires so they couldn't leave," Ramey said.

    She had to balance on her walker as she pulled out a snub-nosed .38-caliber handgun.

    "I didn't even think twice. I just went and did it," she said. "If they'd even dared come close to me, they'd be 6 feet under by now."

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,267540,00.html

    Hancock County Sheriff's Investigator Andre Fizer said about an 84-year-old man's decision to shoot through a house door at another man who was trying to barge into the house: "You could tell he was devastated. You could tell he was scared." And rightfully so. Twenty-year-old Wade Ledesma made repeated attempts to break in to the house at about 5 a.m. on July 27, threatening to kill him throughout.

    Ledesma "tried to break through the front door and also tried to enter through a back door and a rear window of the residence. The resident called 911 and reported that the intruder was trying to force his way into the home…. [The elderly man] held himself against the door to keep [Ledesma] from entering," reported the Sun Herald.

    The resident became tired from holding the door and, worded about his and his wife's safety, asked his wife to get his pistol. He fired a shot through the door, meant to merely be a war
