Common Questions and Answers about Health insurance kenya


432073 tn?1204148368 At one time another doctor told me to see a urologist if I got another one, but currently I don't have health insurance. I can't really afford it as I am a college student right now. My doctors have cultured the bacteria, to make sure I was on the right antibiotics. All they told me was that the antibiotics they gave me should clear it up. If that is what you mean. The antibiotics--I am not entirely sure if I remember all of them, I know I've taken Cipro, levaquin, and amoxicillin.
Avatar f tn The little prince is the first in his line to be delivered in a clinic rather than on the floor of a mud hut. But he is not the first with health insurance. Both his mother and grandmother have it, which is why he was born here. Rwanda has had national health insurance for 11 years now; 92 percent of the nation is covered, and the premiums are $2 a year.
Avatar n tn I plan to take doxycycline for malaria prophylaxis and carry Coartem (purchased from a reputable pharmacy in Nairobi Kenya) for emergency treatment. I've used malarone in the past but cannot afford it with current insurance. I have a mild IDC. I want to ensure that even if very ill with suspected malaria, I am not given halofantrine. How can a traveller find out if a particular medication is used in a foreign environment? Make sure he/she doesn't take a drug with dangerous side effects?
Avatar n tn One month in Kenya in may. Took malarone. Missed some doses. Bitten by plenty of mosquitoes and 1 tsetse fly. 4 dais later i went to 14 Midwest and southern states over the course of 3 weeks and fought off hundreds of ticks, over 10 were able to attach for various periods of time. 1 for at least 24 hours. Came home with a rash on right leg that looked like chiggers. Lasted 3 weeks and itched like crazy.
1310633 tn?1430227691 The audience jeered and booed, with some at times even applauding the death penalty and cheering the notion of allowing a person with no health insurance to die. All that was missing was a thumbs up or down from the crowd indicating if a candidate should be executed. (This, too, would undoubtedly have been met with cheers.) Think about it: When you run for president , you are running for the worst job in America.
1347273 tn?1317630738 As I live in England we have a free national health service(NHS) so I can get physiotherapy on the NHS. I also have private health insurance which I use quite a lot but I have run out of physiotherapy benefit. I will let you know how everything goes with all my consultants.
551343 tn?1506834118 Now I am convinced IF i had the insurance and could pay him privately i would have been diagnosed I am sure of it. Anyway. Where was I oh yes, never trust a neurologist. Well he told me later that he wasnt looking for MS at the beginning and that my symptoms never pointed to any demylinating events..... He also told me that my symptoms were non specific for MS..... OK so why did he write this then: On Examination. Her blood pressure was 200/90 (she apparently has white coat hypertension).
356054 tn?1218556075 Hey Teko, I pay for my insurance all by myself. I don't count on anybody for that. It is not to expensive! Shop around. There is good affordable insurance out there. Unless your are someone who abuses the system. Why should I pay for your healthcare anyway.
1627868 tn?1333889942 I took a job as a railroad freight conductor in order to procure forced coverage health insurance! I am currently off work due to my MS like issues and I really don't know if I'll be able to return. I agree with all of you who mentioned how their families come first. They are the reason I was willing to take a job I have no interest in and the reason why I will attempt to stick it out as long as I am able.
Avatar f tn I cannot tell you how much garbage I heard about a single payer health care system. I live with one so I can say was absolute nonsense. But when you try to tell people the truth, they just don't want to hear it. They prefer to live with their fears. These talk show hosts play right into their fears and are manipulating them. If someone had any fear of a black president looking for extreme changes, they will look for that which backs them up and that is what is happening.
385161 tn?1270084818 Despite my party affiliation, I tend to be fiscally conservative and would prefer that Obama not raise taxes on ANYONE. The worse thing to do in my opinion is to raise taxes on anybody despite their income level - even 3%.
Avatar f tn they do not want to take the country back to the discrimination of the past, they say, they just want the states to be able to block the federal mandate on health insurance. Still, the government programs that many Tea Party supporters call unconstitutional are the ones that have helped many black people emerge from poverty and discrimination.
284738 tn?1283110419 HEALTH CARE Barack Obama * Would create a national health insurance program for individuals who do not have employer-provided health care and who do not qualify for other existing federal programs. Allows individuals to choose between the new public insurance program or from among private insurance plans that meet certain coverage standards. Requires employers who do not provide health coverage for employees to pay into the national health insurance program.
Avatar n tn I have some other posts you might want to look through. They cut off benefits to my 101 year old patient and returned her a complete mess, having completely given up. The insurance guidelines do not necessary reflect reality. You are going to have to take on part of the burden, which is a tremendous load. There is a book called the "thirty six hour day". Believe it. Go to the rehab center and ask permission to watch a rehab session, or better yet videotape it.
Avatar f tn Recently, my father lost his job - and along with it, our family's health coverage. I hate to sound desperate, but at the moment, those of you at MedHelp are my only hope. If you have any idea what this might be, or any advice, I'd truly appreciate it. :) Note: If helpful, I am 22 years old, female, with a past heart murmur (not sure if it still exists) and unusual lack of periods for years (but that's probably unrelated...) Otherwise pretty healthy.
Avatar f tn com/s/ap/20081016/ap_on_el_pr/joe_the_plumber At least Joe the plumber wouldn't have to pay taxes with Obama's plan. If he did make over $250,000 a year, then he still be taxed on health care insurance. Of course this is if John McCain were to win the election. Regardless, I don't know what is going to happen to Joe the plumber, now that the entire country knows he isn't a license plumber!
Avatar f tn I just looked it up and it apparently control cholesterol levels and helps with heart health. Do you have problems with your cholesterol and/or heart? This concerns me because if you have these problems, it is VERY important for you to continue to take Lipitor. As far as the fatigue, this is caused by your body tensing due to anxiety. You may not notice it happening... I noticed it in myself, and my doctor gave me tramadol to control chronic fatigue. It works well.
Avatar m tn In 2011, the company bulked up its nondiscrimination policies by adding protections for gender identity. Two years later, the company announced that it would start offering health insurance benefits to same-sex partners of employees starting in 2014.
Avatar n tn Otherwise, like you, I have been feeling perfectly fine and am in good health. They are not severe, like you said, just annoying. Best of wishes to you all.
1310633 tn?1430227691 31, 2011, with the passage of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance and Job Creation Act of 2010. While the policy was passed as a means of providing financial relief to corporations during the recession, Congress's Joint Committee on Taxation recently estimated accelerated depreciation will cost the U.S. Treasury about $37 billion between 2010 and 2014. Revenue from corporate taxes was only 1.2 percent of U.S.
Avatar n tn I have played rugby in my younger age and have never broken any bones. The doctor throughout my life has provided very positive results on my general health and bones being strong. I dont think it is to do with weak cartilage?? anybody have any ideas?
551343 tn?1506834118 Went to a neuro this Jan and was dismissed because I am without health ins and could not afford all the required testing. In July I started with a new PCP who was outraged that I had not been dx with MS due to my textbook symptoms. Not much help for me except that I felt better that I had someone in the medical profession who believed me!! Started on LDN, prescribed by my PCP, about 7 1/2 wks ago.
Avatar n tn 1) Alcohol consumption will always have adverse effects on all of your body's systems. In addition, I am extremely skeptical of alcohol’s supposed health benefits. 2) This goes for nicotine and obviously other, more serious, drugs. 3) Caffeine consumption will have adverse effects on your digestive system, especially. 4) Milk and cream products produce flatulence in me, and they most likely do the same for you.
Avatar n tn My doc cut the strings completly off and said to come back if he could still feel it. Well he could, but due to unfortunate circumstances no health insurance on myself or hubby. He continued to feel the strings, we had to stop having sex because they would draw blood. I had no period after three months, yay. Then I got sick with food poisioning, I threw up for a week. Suddenly, I got my period, a normal period.
Avatar n tn This seems like something which would possible help our problem as well. I'm using a salve I bought at a natural health store, which has comfrey, calendula and a mixture of oils (olive, coconut). The combination of herbs is known for their synergistic effects of relaxing, nourishing and rebuilding skin tissue and collegen strands as well as maintaining elasticity. Sometimes I also rub in some Vit E oil from a capsule. You could also use just Olive oil.
Avatar n tn I have had a few extremely tiny little red specks crop up on my arms and legs but I am thinking that is maybe getting older or a guy at the health food store it was possibly a vitamin B deficiency. Noone can really see them unless they get out a magnifying glass of course, but they do see what I am talking about after they strain their eyes! I am not so concerned about the itty bitty red dots though- broken capillaries apparently.
