Wellness NOW, a Colorado 501c3, establishes fund to pay for healthcare for poor and those whose insurance does not cover treatments.










(PRWEB) February 1, 2003

(Denver, CO) Â? Noreen Teachout of Wellness NOW, A Learning Place Inc. in cooperation with The Colorado Center of Traditional Medicine has established a fund that will pay for Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapies for victims of violent crimes, elderly patients, and patients without health insurance or whose health insurance does not pay for “alternative” therapies. According to Ms. Teachout, “Wellness NOW is filling the gap in healthcare by offering information and access to therapists who are certified in traditional, ancient, alternative therapies.

The Board of Wellness NOW is also seeking help with fundraising ideas and strategies. Any help with this project will be greatly appreciated by us and by patients who need care but can’t afford it.” Martha Lucas, Ph.D., L.Ac. of The Colorado Center of Traditional Medicine says “It is my firm belief and my experience that TCM works and that people heal even though they feel that they have reached the end of their rope and have used all of the options offered by modern medicine. Therefore, it is hard for me to turn people away because their insurance doesn’t cover treatment and they can’t afford it. The program that Wellness NOW is offering will fill that need.”

Patients will be treated either at The Colorado Center of Traditional Medicine located in the Capitol Hill area of downtown Denver or in Fort Collins at Greyrock Family Practice, 1240 Doctors Lane near Poudre Valley Hospital. Donations can be sent to Wellness NOW, 1255 19th Street #1609, Denver, Colorado 80202-1434 in the name of a particular person or just as a general donation to pay for services rendered to the needy. The fees that practitioners will be paid for treatments range from $ 50 to $ 75. Lucas says “if benefactors could see their way clear to pay for a series of treatments, say 10, for a particular patient, that would be spectacular!” For more information you may call 303-295-2944 or send an email to The Colorado Center of Traditional Medicine at DrMLucas@AcupunctureWoman.com.

When taking a trip to the mountains, you want to make sure to do a number of things to stay safe. Colorado Springs offers some of the best excursions and outdoor opportunities that you can find anywhere in the United States, but these things are not without their own dangers. You will just have to embrace these dangers if you really want to experience nature the way that it was meant to be experienced. You do not have to be helpless, however. You can get Colorado Springs insurance that will help you to be protected even from the things that you cannot expect.

The first type of insurance that you will want is medical coverage. This will help you if you trip and fall while you are hiking and break your ankle. It can pay for the people who have to come and get you and transport you to the hospital. It can pay for the drugs that you have to take while you are there and the bandages that are required to help you heal. It can also pay for the doctor’s charges and anything else that is incurred while you are in the hospital.

After that, you will want to think about Colorado Springs insurance for your car. It can be very fun and exciting to take an off-road vehicle back in the forest and drive around in places where there are few roads. This does raise the chances that you will crash quite a bit, however. You will be driving in an uncontrolled environment and it will be impossible to predict everything that can happen. Your car could hit a tree, a rock, or be swept up in a river or bog. You want to have a policy that will pay to get it fixed.

Finally, you should consider insurance on the things that you bring with you if they are very expensive. Some hiking and camping gear can cost thousands of dollars. If you want to do something even more extreme, something like rock climbing, you will need specialized gear. If you lose any of this or break it, you may not be able to replace it with money out of your wallet. While this type of coverage is not for everyone, it can be very helpful if you are in a situation in which many expensive items could be ruined.

All told, there are a few types of Colorado Springs insurance that you should look into, but not so many as to be overwhelming. With a little bit of time and work, you can get the policies that you need. With them in place, you can experience the great outdoors without any sense of stress.

Apartment and condominium dwellers are susceptible to the accidents caused by other people living in very close proximity.  A kitchen fire three floors away can result in damage to personal property as the fire spreads, and the water that is used in the attempt to extinguish it.  Without renter’s insurance in Colorado Springs, the belongings will be lost without the owner having a way to recover the expense of replacing anything.  Building insurance will cover the loss incurred by the owner of the facility, but the cost of replacing belongings, additional living expenses, and any liability that would cover the renter is not covered except by a renter’s insurance policy.

Whether personal belongings are destroyed by fire, lightning, wind, hail, or explosion, the standard renter’s insurance policy will pay to replace the contents of the residence.  Loss caused by theft, vandalism, riot, and malicious mischief are also covered without additional policy riders having to be purchased.  When too much ice and snow accumulates and causes the building to collapse, personal belongings will be replaced under the policy benefits.  If a power surge causes damage by starting a fire, most of the contents are covered, but if the electricity causes internal damage to electronic equipment, replacement of that equipment is not paid for through the standard renter’s insurance policy in Colorado Springs.

Within the standard coverage verbiage written in the insurance paperwork, provision for temporary living expenses is included.  Many apartment complexes that are damaged by fire will take more than a year to rebuild so the insured is encouraged to simply move to another complex.  If a minor problem causes the resident to need a short stay in a hotel, the policy coverage will pay the expenses.

When a friend falls and suffers an injury inside the apartment, the standard renter’s insurance in Colorado Springs will cover the expenses incurred up to the policy limit.  Even if the injured person decides to sue the insured, the policy will cover the court costs and the settlement amount up to the stated policy limits.

Renter’s insurance premiums vary by the attributes of the coverage including whether the payout is based on actual value or replacement cost.  The policy that pays the replacement cost of the belongings will be slightly more expensive.  Carrying a higher deductible can lower the premium, but the renter must know for sure that the deductible is affordable.  Certain locations will raise the premium for the policy because of risk levels within the neighborhood.  In higher crime areas, insurance companies will charge higher premiums to cover incidents that are more frequent.  Earthquake and flood damage are not covered under standard renter’s insurance, but both types of coverage can be purchased under special policies.  Research the area and make the effort to find a reputable insurance company and then purchase adequate coverage for your personal belongings.
