cupping. other types like chiropractic, or osteopathy are manipulation, as also physical therapy is too. ]

Do you think the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has worked?
Weegy: The HIPAA ensures that individual health care plans are accessible, portable, and renewable, and it sets the standards and the methods for how medical data is shared across the U.S. health system in order to prevent fraud. [ It pre-empts state law unless the state's regulations are more stringent. This act has been modified since 1996 to include processes for safely storing and sharing patient medical information electronically. The act also has an administrative simplification provision, which is aimed at increasing efficiency and reducing administrative costs by establishing national standards. Health insurers, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), healthcare billing services and other entities that handle sensitive personal medical information must comply with the standards set by the HIPAA. Noncompliance may result in civil or criminal penalties. Read more: ] (More)

What are the benefits and risks of advertising and marketing health care products and services to potential health care consumers?
Weegy: Healthcare marketing in the United States had little regulation until the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914. [ This legislation established the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which regulates the marketing of products and services, including prescription drugs, medical devices and healthcare procedures. The FTC protects consumers from deceptive claims and unfair practices in marketing. It works in conjunction with the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to ensure the safety of healthcare services and products. ] (More)

I have seen so many relationships torn apart because one person does not want some of the information shared and the other person continues to push. It is not just relationships between men and women, but also relationships between parents and their children. What is your thought?
Weegy: I believe that the key to relationships is trust, which requires communication. If someone doesn't want to talk about something, though, others should respect their wishes. (More)

Weegy: Here’s the trap I’ve seen too many women fall into: a woman keeps expressing to her husband how he is doing something (or not doing something) that is hurting her. [ Even after several such conversations, he doesn’t change —or he’ll change for a few days and then go back to his old habits, at which point the wife complains again. Still, no long-term change. The wife reads a book or attends a seminar and decides she needs to find a better way to communicate so she can get her message across, but even after this, there’s no permanent change. Her error is assuming that she’s not getting through. In point of fact, she is getting through to her husband—he may fully understand and be completely aware of her pain, but he’s not motivated by her pain. If he likes the marriage as it is, he’ll put up with an occasionally disagreeable conversation now and then. ] (More)
