Two Nebraska women sound alarm over questionable private Long Term Care Policy Increases – Are they trying to force senior citizens on Medicaid?

Patricia Rief HeskettPatricia Rief Heskett and Sylvia Smith’slong-term care insurance has more than doubled in three years, so she is writing to state and federal officials for help…“What we’re feeling as retirees is that they’re trying to force us onto Medicaid,” Heskett, 70, said Tuesday. “The retirees are going to lose everything they’ve worked for their whole lives. We planned for our retirement. Now I’m sitting here watching it go up in smoke.”.  http://www.livewellnebraska.com/consumer/long-term-care-dilemma-retirees-are-going-to-lose-everything/article_b6c764eb-559a-54f7-9d77-685dfc1da1eb.html

Jan 2011 Kiplinger Report: Whose rates will rise? For John Hancock policyholders, the size of the increase will vary depending on your age and when you purchased the policy. The increase applies to both individual and group policies, but it does not affect the long-term-care policy from John Hancock for federal employees, which already had a premium increase of up to 25% in the spring of 2010. The John Hancock rate hike will not apply to Leading Edge or Custom Care II Enhanced policies — two of its newer offerings, which were issued after regulators passed stricter rate-setting requirements.

March 2013  Forbes Report:   http://www.forbes.com/sites/baldwin/2013/03/29/dodge-the-long-term-care-insurance-mess/

Lawyers who have sued Insurance Companies – Fraudulent Policies/Practices:  …When buying long-term care coverage, the consumer should anticipate that premiums will increase to levels that in all probability will severely strain a fixed-income budget, resulting in cancellation, just prior to the time when coverage is needed. All insurance companies know this because their records confirm an increasing level of cancellations as premiums increase with aging policies and aging policyholders. The customer does not. The end result is a system that is rich with the potential for fraud. Add to this situation the fact that sales agents are driven by high commissions and the potential for fraud can readily become a reality.   http://www.alexanderinjury.com/library-fraud-1/

TAKE ACTION:  POST YOUR EXPERIENCES AT THIS CONSUMER AFFAIRS WEBSITE:  http://www.consumeraffairs.com/insurance/john_hancock_life.html

Some complaints listed at the Consumer Affairs site:

***Oct 2014 Complaint:  My mother is now in assisted living, since early April of 2014. She has been paying into JH for at least 30 years and they have amassed nearly $100,000 in payments from her. The requisite 100 days passed in assisted living, and yet the insurance payments did not start on time. After several complaints they paid for only one month, then stopped, for no reason and with no explanation. I now have to have my lawyer take over to get the payments that are due. My mother is fortunate that she has my brother, myself and a lawyer to get the money owed to her by JH. It makes me wonder just how many hundreds of older adults without the support my mother has get scammed by this company.

Jan 2015 Complaint:  Deceased father’s pension was handled by John Hancock. Worked at Abex Corporation. Sat in account for nearly 30 years. We did not receive any interest on this $168000.00 amount, seems we are due some interest money on that amount. Took years to get that amount released. Can you help. Seems unfair.

Dec 2014 Complaint: They, John Hancock, took my pension check I receive every month back! After they had already put it in my account on the Dec 25 2014!!!! 5 days later I have paid my bills and used my money then today I use my card – no money in my bank acct!!! What! I’ve been hacked I thought. I run to my bank but no, it was John Hancock who took my check back that was in my acct for 5 days!!!!! This has to be a crime, this is wrong!!! How can they get away with this!! So I call them, they say “oh we paid our check too early!!! So now we took your funds back till Jan 2!!!!” Bull!!! This is their mistake and now I am broke with fees to my bank!!! They should not get away with this!!!!

Dec 2014 Complaint: My mother in law has been trying to surrender 2 of her policies. She is 84 years old and has many health problems. My husband and I have been caring for her for 2 or more years. She has a house and does not want to lose it to back taxes and so she decided to surrender 2 of her policies. For 7 weeks since they sent us the paperwork for her to fill out they have jerked her around, me and my husband. I faxed the paperwork from my job 15 to 20 times. They say wait 24 to 48 hours before it is in the system for them to tell us whether they got it or not. When we call they say they are missing something. Conflicting stories and the rest is absolutely B.S. 84 years old and they are treating her as if she has no right to the money. We called the insurance commissioner today and filing a formal complaint.

ISIS Beheading/Crucifying/Shooting Christian Children **Warning GRAPHIC CONTENT

ISIS killing children 4This is what the United States President, Barack Hussein Obama and other Middle East countries have allowed by NOT taking immediate, aggressive military action against ISIS…..The following information concerning these pictures and story for pleas of help from Crisis Response International and Snopes:

Several concerned users took to the Facebook page of Crisis Response International to ask about the Sean Malone forward, and the person or persons who manage the CRI page have been fielding queries about whether the original message was possibly misconstrued or sent in haste. On 17 September 2014, CRI said:

ISIS killing children 3That email was an urgent prayer alert sent to close friends over a month ago that somehow got leaked out. The reports of beheadings were what we were hearing from local pastors and other sources. The information was never meant to be blasted out publicly but for prayer as ISIS closed in our teams.

We know of 5 children that were beheaded and this is from a city official on the ground.

An update later the same evening read:

ISIS killing children 2Again this text was sent to a handful of people and was leaked. These were the reports that we were getting at that time and are now being confirmed. It wasn’t intended for public information but perhaps it was by divine intervention. In our opinion one child beheaded is an all out outrage. We have other reports as well that we are in the process of confirming. We have done our best to post info on this page on our website and in emails about this issue.

The undated message about systemic beheadings of children in Queragosh lends itself to eternal forwarding, but as many have pointed out, much of the information is secondhand. There is little doubt Christians are being displaced and even persecuted in cities including Queragosh, but no reports of any incidents matching the claim of “systematic” beheadings have been confirmed.

THIS IS THE LETTER/EMAIL THAT WAS SENT OUT:

Dear Friends,

ISIS Killing ChildrenJust a few minutes ago I received the following text message on my phone from Sean Malone who leads Crisis Relief International (CRI). We then spoke briefly on the phone and I assured him that we would share this urgent prayer need with all of our contacts.

“We lost the city of Queragosh (Qaraqosh). It fell to ISIS and they are beheading children systematically. This is the city we have been smuggling food too. ISIS has pushed back Peshmerga (Kurdish forces) and is within 10 minutes of where our CRI team is working. Thousands more fled into the city of Erbil last night. The UN evacuated it’s staff in Erbil. Our team is unmoved and will stay. Prayer cover needed!”

A later variant of the e-mail added:

ISIS killing children 4Please pray for this Urgent Prayer Request from Dan and Marilyn Wilson Missionaries who are in the areas that are being attacked by ISIS are asking to be showered in prayer. ISIS has taken over the town they are in today. He said ISIS is systematically going house to house to all the Christians and asking the children to denounce Jesus. He said so far not one child has. And so far all have consequently been killed. But not the parents. The UN has withdrawn and the missionaries are on their own. They are determined to stick it out for the sake of the families – even if it means their own deaths. They are very afraid, have no idea how to even begin ministering to these families who have had seen their children martyred.

ISIS killing children 3Since the message appeared in August 2014, concern for the situation described in the message has not abated. At around the time Malone’s plea began appearing in in boxes, news out of Iraq indicated that the situation had indeed become dire, and the UK’s Telegraph quoted Joseph Thomas, the Chaldean archbishop of Kirkuk and Sulaimaniyah as saying on 7 August 2014: 

I now know that the towns of Qaraqosh, Tal Kayf, Bartella and Karamlesh have been emptied of their original population and are now under the control of the militants … It’s a catastrophe, a tragic situation. We call on the UN Security Council to immediately intervene. Tens of thousands of terrified people are being displaced as we speak, it cannot be described.”

ISIS killing children 2Thomas did not mention the beheading of children by ISIS in Queragosh (Qaraqosh) or elsewhere in the tumultuous region, but his tone too was that of extreme worry, pleading for intervention by NGOs to assist displaced residents. Understandably, many of faith were moved either way to pray for the Christians in this war-torn region of Iraq but also worriedly sought to discern whether children were being horrifically beheaded in large numbers. 

Claims that ISIS beheaded children have circulated separately from the Sean Malone forward, but are often appended with a graphic and inaccurate image. That picture, depicting a young, decapitated female child, was taken in Syria in 2013.      Last updated:   20 October 2014

The picture to the left – May 2013 983756_463807357041122_151897559_nChildren massacred because they were Christian! This US-backed Free Syrian Army rebels and ever more radical spin-off factions are attacking and burning Christian churches, shooting Christians dead in the street, broadcasting ultimatums that all Christians must be cleansed from the rebel-held villages, and even shooting priests.  This is who Obama backed to overthrow Assad.
