VIA Mental Floss – Dec 27, 2018 – Beginning in 2019, Americans will no longer need to make 30 phone calls to figure out how much it will cost to deliver a baby or get an X-ray. According to Newsweek, a new federal rule will require hospitals across the country to list their prices…

Retirement from a nearly 40-year career in hospital and healthcare fund-development and community relations in 2010 did not end my association with or concern for that industry. In fact, I often share that I really did not know hospitals until I became (circa 2006) a cancer patient, now about to mark 9 years of continuous remission.

The story NUZZELED at the top of this post archives a universal concern about health care today. The issue is how best to discover the true costs, aka pricing, of hospital services, procedures, and products?

Despite the new Federal law requiring hospitals to be more transparent about pricing, we are reminded that the actual cost for any given test, procedure, or diagnostic may vary depending on the patient’s specific health insurance or Medicare plan. According to the source, “some nonprofit hospitals also factor one’s income into the equation when tallying up costs, so that should change the grand total, too. Even if it still requires a little guesswork on your part, this new transparency when it comes to health care costs is a welcome change.”

Frequently, I am now using my iPad mini for video captures of family events, so I have searched for and found a number of accessories that help with that task, like this TRIPOD (left) and the protective CASE (below)
undefined

As a still camera and a video recording device, the iPad mini is a great tool, although a bit bulky to handle. Of course, dropping the device is a worry. So, these accessories, including the Padlette D2 Gray strap (below) are worthy investments if you want better protection for your iPad.

Apple equipped the latest iPad mini with pretty nice cameras. The 5-megapixel iSight camera takes terrific stills and lets you capture 1080p video, or the highest of the high-definition specifications. Another bonus is that it has built-in video stabilization, which helps compensate for a slightly jittery videographer.

  • Secure strap, grip, handle. Can be used in conjunction with shell or case.
  • Provides on the table screen protection. Non-skid silicone protects back surface.
  • Provides on the table screen protection. Non-skid silicone protects back surface.
  • Easy on; easy off. Lightweight, portable. Durable and washable.
  • Affords numerous hand positions.
  • Universal tablet holder for “junior” tablets and e-readers. Unique patented design.undefined
  • Protective Case
