Securus Helps to Ease the Suffering of Children

You might not realize this but when a child has a parent in jail, they are doing time with them. Nearly 3 million children have a dad or mom locked up behind bars. Children who experience this situation usually have to suffer through it. No kid wants to be away from their parents. When this happens all sorts of problems arise.


Most prisoners who are doing time really do care about their kids. We might not believe that they do. However, I have discovered that many parents want to be their kids and not let them grow up without them. Even if a prisoner intentionally committed a criminal act, they still want to be their child in most cases. They still realize they have a responsibility to them.


I recently found out about the Video Visitation App that is offered by Securus. This technology allows incarcerated parents and their children to keep in touch with each other. The technology is set up within many prisons institutions all over the country. It gives inmates the ability to communicate through a video platform with their kids on a mobile device.


A responsible adult has to download the Video Visitation App on their mobile device. Once they register their account, set up a payment option and schedule visitation times; they can then begin to speak with an inmate.


All an image has to do is to turn on a video terminal within their location and began to interact with their boy or girl. An incarcerated mom or dad no longer has to miss birthdays, special events or special moments within their child’s life. As long as they are approved, an incarcerated parent can view their children social gatherings or just doing their homework.


I know that this type of technology works and makes a difference in the lives of inmates and their children. You can find out more about how the Video Visitation App and other Securus technologies can help to ease the suffering of children on their Securus Technologies website.

The benefits of Medicare Advantage

In the United States there are all kinds of insurance plans to choose from depending on life and family circumstances. Sometimes insurance is required like car insurance on Medicare Advantage is a specific category of health insurance that is Part C of medicare. It provides a managed health care plan that is paid out based on a specific fee every month. Medicare advantage provides users an alternative to sections A and B of medicare.

The plan provides the same medical services as other plans, but pays a fee for service directly. Any Medicare Advantage user must sign of on parts A and B of medicare. All three parts of medicare are controlled by private insurance. Part A of the program offers payments for those enrolled in a hospital, experienced nursing stations, but excludes employees that work as physicians and surgeons. Part B offers payments to physicians and surgeons in hospitals and skilled nursing facilities, as well as ER visits and x-rays. Part C of the general health plans include everything form parts A and B with the addition of yearly physical exams, eye exams and/or dental coverage. The ability to hear and provide health benefits are not usually included in a regular medical plan, but are part of the Medicare Advantage plan.

The main difference between a part C medical plan and other plans is that is will have a monetary restriction on how much a beneficiary needs to spend each year out of pocket. Many medicare advantage plan users have to find additional drug coverage on their own. There are other specific payments to those enrolled in Medicare Advantage that are dealing with prescription drugs.

Anyone that is part of the C Medicare Advantage plan, medicare pays a set amount every month. The amount given out depends on the city that the customer is living in.
