Securus: Fighting Back

Oftentimes, I feel like we live in a passive world where people just turn a blind eye when something is going wrong and something isn’t right. They don’t want to get their hands dirty and they don’t want to get involved in certain aspects of business. They look the other way and because of this, injustice keeps occurring in the world. That is not the case, however, when it comes to Securus. They do not sit idly by while bad things are going on, especially when it comes to GTL, Global Tel Link. They are an inmate communications provider that is doing some shady and underhanded methods when it comes to the way they conduct business.

These have mostly gone ignored but not anymore as Securus plans to release a series of press releases that are going to bring the truth to life in a way that will shock GTL to its core. No longer will they be able to get away with charging customers $12.95 for a fifteen minute phone call. No longer will people have to pay up to three-thousand dollars or 60 dollars a week to speak to an inmate. Yes, they might be an inmate and might have committed a crime, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve the same rights as anyone else. They shouldn’t be taken advantage of, that is for sure.

It is good thing companies like Securus are out there, as they are able to make a real difference in the world and make sure that everything is on the up and up. They don’t like to see people getting take advantage of while companies like GTL keep getting richer and richer. There is something very wrong with that picture. With these releases, GTL can no longer hide and they can no longer come up with excuses.

Understanding and Appreciating Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans are healthcare plans that allow individuals to receive medical coverage and require monthly payment of premiums from members. This is a form of a private health plan and is a close substitute of Original Medicare. Part A provides cover that excludes payments of surgeons and physicians. Part B provides full in-patient cover including payments to surgeons, physicians and outpatient hospital services like X-rays, ER, laboratory and diagnostics.

Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), Private Fee-For-Service (PFFS) and Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs). Other plans include Medicare Medical Savings Accounts (MSAs), Provider Sponsored Organizations (PSOs) and Special Needs Plans (SNPs).

Those who enroll in Medicare Advantage Plans still retain their Medicare. However, the difference is that services offered come with different rules, restrictions and costs. This affects when and how members receive care. These plans come with limits for out of pocket payments. In addition, they do not have higher cost-sharing coverage than that offered under Original Medicare. This applies for certain services such as dialysis and chemotherapy. However, they have additional benefits like dental care and routine vision check-ups.

Those eligible to join Medicare include:
Individuals with Medicare subscription to Part A and Part B.
People who live within the service area of the plan.
Individuals without End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). However, some Special Needs Plans accept individuals suffering from ESRD.

It is important to carefully consider one’s options before enrolling in any medical cover plan especially when under health coverage from an employer or union.

The Tale of White Shark Media Complaints

White Shark Media wants its clients to be happy and, of course, wants them to experience significant increases in revenue through a mutual affiliation.

White Shark Media positively has had a number of clients earn exceptionally well. Testimonials from clients reveals improvements and increases in revenue are quite impressive. The company even helped one client earn well over $1 million.

Not every person who signs up with White Shark Media is totally new to pay per click and AdWords campaigns.

Recently, White Shark Media devised a free AdWords evaluation promotional campaign to help draw in customers who may be unhappy with their current results. In the past, White Shark Media’s policy was to drop all remnants of prior AdWords campaigns.

Not everyone was thrilled with this approach since some of the older methods were generating some money. Now, White Shark Media has a totally new policy in place. The company is going to retain components of earlier campaigns and strategies that the client feels is working.

White Shark Media has also put into effect new tracking and analytics systems designed to ascertain which phone call-based leads owe their arrival to the floating ads from Bing and Google. Not everyone contacts a client by way of clicking on the ads.

Some may cross-reference the ad with an available phone number and place a call. Clients never know the origin of these calls so they do not automatically know if their arrangement with White Shark Media is paying off.
