Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

The Affordable Health Insurance For Organizational Benefit

By Kunal Wadhwani

How does an organization stand to gain from providing its employees the benefit of affordable health insurance coverage?? Agreed that it is mandatory by an act of Federal Government, still why do employers take it up seriously and non-reluctantly?? Irrespective of their size and capital investments, all the organizations take up group health insurance plan to provide adequate health coverage to its employees, who now have something to fall back on in case of a disaster. Moreover, their regular checkups and treatments are also subsidized leaving them with a substantial chuck of their pay while ensuring a healthy, wealthy and wise life.

The employees as well as the employers both benefit from the health insurance plan as the rate of absenteeism will reduce considerably as the employees will seek effective medical guidance in case of any illness and thus benefit in the productivity of the organization and it will also not create a hole in the pocket of the employees as this health insurance benefits are non-taxable and the employee will not have to worry about his savings.

However what does an affordable health insurance plan actually mean for an organization. It is essential on the part of the organization to seek help from someone who is already an expert in the area of health insurance quotes. There are several agents and middlemen available in the market who provide assistance but in return of a fee. However you can also seek help from online health insurance brokers.

www.insurancecaredirect.com is such a state of the art website that serves a whooping number of customer's everyday by generating health insurance quotes providing them with affordable health insurance plans. As stated out earlier, small cap firms as well as large joint stock companies, even NGOs can apply for group health insurance plan.

The best aspects of such a plan is that unlike auto, life and other insurance which are to be taken in the name of the individual, a group insurance plan has to be taken in the name of the owner or employer and not individual employees covered in the plan. The rate of premium and deductible is highly reduced in case of group health insurance as it is directly proportional to the increase or decrease in the number of persons covered under a plan.
