The United States has seen major advances in medical care over the past decades, but
access to care at an affordable cost is not universal. Many Americans lack health care insurance
of any kind, and many others with insurance are nonetheless exposed to financial risk because of
high premiums, deductibles, co-pays, limits on insurance payments, and uncovered services. One
might expect that the U.S. poverty measure would capture these financial effects and trends in
them over time.
Welcome to the third edition of Understanding Medical
Surgical Nursing! We have fully updated all the material,
and have added exciting new information on home health
care, end-of-life care, disaster response and bioterrorism,
stroke, and more.
We continue to work hard to provide a text written at an
understandable level, with features that help students understand,

the many students who tell us they find the book very readable,
and actually enjoyable.

We are all aware of the essential role that insurance services play as a commercial and
infrastructural service. From an infrastructural perspective it promotes financial and social
stability, mobilizes and channel savings, supports trade, commerce and entrepreneurial
activity and improves the quality of the lives of individuals. In a fast-globalizing world
economy, Governments the world over are faced with challenges relating to the
regulatory environment, emerging global trends in the insurance sector, technological
innovations and liberalization of the insurance sector.
A long-term care insurance scheme, similar in nature to other social insurance systems in
Germany (pension, employment and health insurance), was introduced by the German
Parliament in 1994.
All employees earning less than the social security earnings ceiling
(Pflichtversicherungsgrenze) for the German social insurance system (3,937.50 euros per
month in 2006) are members of this system.

Perhaps you have been considering cosmetic laser surgery. A cosmetic
surgical treatment is voluntary and not medically necessary. You
must decide if such a treatment is right for you, and you will have
to pay for the procedure with your own money. Health insurance
does not cover cosmetic procedures. How do you know if a cosmetic
laser procedure is worth it?
Many associations let insurance companies and agents offer long-term care
insurance to their members. These policies are like other types of long-term
care insurance and typically require medical underwriting. Like employer-
group policies, association policies usually give their members a choice of
benefit options. In most cases, policies sold through associations must let
members keep or convert their coverage after leaving the association. Be
careful about joining an association just to buy any insurance coverage.
Review your rights if the policy is terminated or canceled. ...
While there appears to be a rising incidence of problem drinking in the elderly, there are
also reports that low risk drinking may provide benefits to older populations. Indeed.
arguably most of the supposed benefits of alcohol consumption are to be found in older
people. So, for example, the claimed protective effect of alcohol in regard to
cardiovascular disease applies to the late middle aged and elderly. For this reason, the
recommended optimum level of alcohol consumption for health is higher for the elderly
than the young.
Someone with a physical illness or disability often needs hands-on or
stand-by assistance with activities of daily living (see page 19). People
with cognitive impairments usually need supervision, protection or verbal
reminders to do everyday activities. The way long-term care services are
provided is changing. Skilled care and personal care are still the terms used
most often to describe long-term care and the type or level of care you
If you already have health problems that are likely to mean you will need
long-term care (for example, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease), you
probably won’t be able to buy a policy. Insurance companies have medical
underwriting standards to keep the cost of long-term care insurance
affordable. Without such standards, most people would not buy coverage
until they needed long-term care services.
Some states have a regulation requiring the insurance company and the
agent to go through a worksheet with you to decide if long-term care
insurance is right for you.
