An Apple A Day | Parallel end-of-life conversations happening in Wenatchee

Honoring Choices Pacific Northwest (honoringchoicespnw.org) provides guidance for deciding how you want those last months, weeks and days to go, and the tools to enable you to discuss those wishes with your family. Several healthcare facilities in Wenatchee have a parallel program in which doctors and nurses are initiating these same conversations with their patients.

An Apple A Day: Latest insurance figures

By the last day of December, 107,071 people had signed up or re-enrolled to receive health insurance through the state's website, healthplanfinder.org, which subsidizes premiums through the Affordable Care Act — also known as Obamacare. That includes over 79,000 people who renewed their plans, and nearly 28,000 people — more than a quarter of those enrolling — who signed up for the first time.

Don't take away my HSA

After moaning and groaning about the trouble it took to get reimbursed for my health expenses through my Health Savings Account, my company sent out a notice this week that our annual insurance renewal is fast approaching.

Watch out for those health insurance subsidies

Many people are going to be shocked to learn they owe penalties or additional payments when they send in their taxes. People being people, some are probably underestimating their income in order to get subsidies when they signed up for insurance through the Affordable Care Act. Others may not be reporting it when their income goes up. So as soon as they send in their tax information that documents a higher income, they'll be expected to pay back the subsidies that they shouldn't have gotten.
