RE: Gets-you-home insurance?

It seems like people are conflating several different types of insurance coverage. Some plans will drive your vehicles home if your family doesn't have a skilled driver remaining; others will not. Some will provide air fare &/or hotel coverage for family members to be at bedside, if appropriate. Some will cover air ambulance costs to take you from the accident scene to the closest hospital or clinic; some will cover it to the closest trauma center; and some will cover it all the way to your local trauma center or rehab facility near your home. It's all a matter of reading the policy terms VERY CAREFULLY before signing on the bottom line -- long before you need to use it!

RE: Folding mattresses

Our 2010 Born Free Class C Mobility has a Flexsteel folding sofa bed, to achieve our mobility requirements. It has a coil spring base with an inflatable air mattress overlay within the same mattress cover. Today, you can get the same kind of mattress in the Air Dream mattress system. With daily folding use, our inflatable overlay lasted approximately 3 years before needing replacement. Good luck!

RE: Prescriptions while on the road?

I have the same problem with CVS, as its sister firm Caremark is the Pharmacy Benefits Manager (PBM) for my wife's State health insurance plan. Their computer automatically either sends a refill order to the pharmacy when 80% of the prescription or time since last refill have elapsed. If there's no refills left, it automatically sends a refill request to my prescribing MD's e-Rx system, where the overworked nurse sees that it's a maintenance medication AND AUTOMATICALLY approves the refill. This is DESPITE my written instructions to BOTH my Caremark account, my local CVS pharmacy, and my MD's SPECIFICALLY asking them to refuse automatic refills. {RANT ON} Their reasons: the local CVS says they can't control the national computer; my MD says that they don't send refill requests to the pharmacies anymore, but wait for an automated request from them; and national CVS does the automated "scheduled refill" "as a courtesy to their patients who can't keep track of so many prescriptions" -- HORSEHOCKEY! The MD's are just getting lazy and national CVS is doing this to boost their sales. {RANT OFF}

RE: Sprinter Class B Wheelchair Accomodation (?)

Doug: Sorry to hear about your ailment. For DW's post-polio quadriparesis & electric scooter, we had Born Free custom build a 26' Class C on an E-450 chassis with a Ricon split-platform lift mounted at the rear door. We went that way for 2 reasons: 1. Because most disability parallel parking spaces aren't van-accessible ("right-hand ramp clearance"), and we tend to use parking lot spaces. We can pull into the spaces, or use 2 spaces back-to-back. 2. The real issue is having a turning radius inside the vehicle. With a side lift, you need 24"-36" turning radius at the end of the lift. If you're using a swivel on the driver's seat, you'll be running off the lift and hitting the commode. (It's even worse if you're using an electric transfer seat, since you can't pull the chair into the seat track area.) PM us if you want more information. DW is a retired rehabilitation counselor and purchased many vehicles for her clients, working with NMEDA-certified vehicle modifiers. (Sorry, but since Born Free closed, the pictures & video of our coach were lost in their web site disappearance.

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

Why is this topic still going on in Technology Corner? It has NOTHING to do with technology! It's more appropriate for Around the Campfire. Moderator, my apologies for making this a public post. Everytime I try to Notify Moderator fails with an error message.

RE: Flip Phone

Well, if you have US$1,500 & can wait until Dec. 26th to pre-order, you can buy the new Motorola Razr 2019. It's a full smartphone that folds horizontally across the middle, to match the original Razr phone form factor, exclusively with VZN in the US. It even has an overlay for the phone mode to match the original phone keyboard, for those of us nostalgics. High on my drool list!
