Why enrollment in VA Healthcare is so important!

VA Healthcare

Has anyone recommended you enrolled in VA Healthcare, but didn’t tell you why. Will I am. The VA is the perfect safety net for veterans, in the event of the of a catastrophic diagnosis or injury.

Jane Babcock had the family of a twenty something veteran call her office from the ER.Hospitalized Veteran 312 x 226Their son suffered a TBI in a motorcycle accident, had no insurance, and was going to need on-going care. Fortunately when he came to the office to register his DD-214 the year before, he also filled out a VA Healthcare application. Since the VA had already verified his service, all Jane needed to do was call the Patient Advocate at the nearest VA Medical Center, and the VA stepped in.

While in a life threatening status the VA paid the hospital bills. Once he was stable the VA arranged for his transfer to the VA hospital (an hour away) until he was strong enough to move to his parents’ home. Due to his need for near daily PT and inability to travel without special transportation, the VA authorized the payments for his PT and on-going care at the local civilian facilities. Jane often tells veterans; who say they don’t want to bother applying since they have insurance or feel their fellow veterans need it more; it is hard for me to fill-out the form or possibly even locate your DD-214 if you are unconscious in the ER.

Do you need another reason

The second reason is to show the VA and federal budget people where the greatest potential needs for care are. When the economy tanked the VA, as most federal agencies, was unprepared for the number of veterans who needed their services. It’s important the all veterans help the VA start determining a better plan for the future for all of us.

Don’t let the resent news of the VA healthcare system stop you from enrolling, even if you’re in good health today.

Start Up Challenges

There are very few things in the business world which are as challenging as a new start-up business. Regardless of how much experience the new business owner may possess this will be no guarantee of success, because there are so much uncertain areas about that new business which has to be learned as you go along.

There is also no guarantee that the decisions which you make at the spur of the moment are indeed the most effective and beneficial for that business and therefore there will always be a measure of uncertainty.

Experience no Guarantee for Success

History has shown us that even when highly experienced business managers were appointed to manage the start-up process of a new business all of their previous experience were insufficient to prepare them for the unknown areas which they had to deal with in that start-up business.
Even with significant amounts of reserve cash, they still struggled to get anywhere with their management of that start-up business. Their substantial amounts of experience were of very little use in that new start-up business.
Research has clearly indicated that in any new business there are tremendous amounts of unknowns, which are difficult to avoid and equally difficult to prepare for. All that the business owner can do is to make the best decision about that present situation and hope that it will be sufficient to resolve those issues.
Even an experienced CEO knows a decision which works well today will no longer be efficient tomorrow, and situation have to be analyzed all over again, and a new decision must be devised in order to address that situation. Here is where a business coach or mentor can help you avoid mistakes.

Management Styles, and Success

The management style which are generally encountered in a start-up business, are often a case of trial and error, and this could continue for two or more years before that business starts to settle into some form of a routine, and at least some form of normalcy are achieved.
However, the quicker a business is able to move through the start-up period, the sooner it begin to generate profits, and the more money can be saved. Very long start-up periods can have the effect that investors run out of money and the venture loses its attractiveness.
One of the best ways to reach a stable business model as quickly as possible will be to generate as much feedback from your customers as possible. When you keep your ear on the ground, and take the comments of your customers to heart, and quickly align yourself with their needs your business will continue to grow. This will happen if you give your customers the best experience possible.

It becomes significantly easier for that new business to find its feet and to enter into a state of profitability if they follow this advice.
