Dodging the Roadkill: Learning To Ride

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – The first time I bought a motorcycle, it was a Suzuki 750.  I bought it on a whim from an advertiser of mine.  It was only $49.00 dollars per month.

HELL YEAH!

I was in my late twenties, working at a big time radio station, extremely full of myself, and I thought this would be pretty cool.  I just straddled the bike, and drove away.  I didn’t have any safety training or anything.  I just took off.

I kept it for a couple of years, but the day AFTER I was run off the road and landed in a field, I sold it.  That was enough for me.

Fast forward to 2016.

American Heart Association says Less than half of Patients prescribed new Cholesterol Drug receive Insurance Approval

 

Circulation Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Less than half of patients received their insurer’s approval for prescriptions of PCSK9 inhibitors, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

PCSK9 inhibitors, like Repatha (evolocumab) and Praluent (alirocumab), work by increasing the removal of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol from the blood. They have been shown to reduce LDL by 60 percent and decrease major cardiac events but cost much more than other cholesterol-lowering drugs with an average cost of $14,300 per year. Prescriptions require prior authorization by health insurance companies.
