Ohio health care info (time sensitive)
Wednesday, August 04, 2010
As you may be aware, the new federal health care reform law requires states to set up a temporary health insurance program or high risk pool “ for uninsured people with preexisting health conditions, including several mental illnesses. This program will last until 2014, when full federal reforms will take effect.  Ohio has designated Medical Mutual of Ohio as the non?profit entity to administer the high risk pool program for the state.  We need your help in getting the word out to eligible Ohioans about this important program.
Beginning August 1st, applications will be available to download and print out at, or consumers can call 1-877-730-1117 beginning August 2 to request a written application form and instructions. Hard copy application packets will also be available at the One-Stop and Benefit Bank sites across the state.  Applicants must include a check for the first month’s payment.  The amount of the payment can be obtained at or by calling 1-877-730-1117 on or after August 2nd.
It is important to note that there are only sufficient funds to cover approximately 5,500 Ohioans and it is estimated that five times as many people are eligible.   This means that applications will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
To learn more about the program, the Ohio Department of Insurance has issued a list of Frequently Asked Questions.  These can be viewed, by clicking here:

Getting to Know your PH
Wednesday, January 20, 2010

Welcome! is a dedicated source of vital information for patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH), as well as for families and friends of those who are facing PH. The goal of this site is to give you accessible, relevant information that will help you understand the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of PH. We know that PH can be a complex and at times frightening condition, so we’ve organized the site around patients’ most frequently asked questions. To guide you in better visualizing the underlying mechanisms (pathophysiology) of related medical problems and symptoms, we offer a series of interactive, animated diagrams. We hope you will find to be useful, and we welcome your feedback.
