    [–] Just bought a 1060 for a friend and it came with this label drgncabe 1 points ago in pcmasterrace

    Some of those points are the same arguments being made to get rid of cash and move to all eletronic transactions.

    Basically Cash fits into a couple of your bullet points, just fyi. The rest (wastefulness, high costs) do to. However, eventually mining will drive costs down as production facilities work to keep up so there could be a net benefit here.

    [–] Question about eRXs. drgncabe 17 points ago in TalesFromThePharmacy

    A surprisingly large number of doctors and nurses just don't know how to use the ePrescribe software properly.

    This right here. eRXs are even more fun in Specialty Pharmacies since there's so little information that comes with them. Secure Direct Messaging kinda helps, but right now it's a bit of a hackjob. It'd be nice if one could send eRXs with attachments, like referral and insurance data. Makes the patient's life so much easier!

    If you look at things that way, our space program would have never got off the ground.

    Obviously there's a difference, just wanted to point out it doesn't work for all situations. ;)

    [–] “New to me” 2013 IPL (or as my friends say: my mid-life crisis car) drgncabe 2 points ago in infiniti

    While the Dealer's story is probably bunk, before I bought my '08 335i ZSP from a local indie dealer I reached out to the local BMW dealership and got the service records off the VIN. Found it was serviced by a dealership down south so I called them up and the service advisor remembered the car and told me all about the owner. Dude was a BMW fanatic and always did maintenance before it was due, took care of known issues like blown turbos and stuff BEFORE I bought it and even occasionally tracked the car (to blow out the cobwebs). SA said he had been a customer for almost 30 years. Told me I wouldn't be disappointing and 88k miles later (at 138kmi now) it's been a dream.

    I did the same with my '12 G37 but the dealership in Miami that serviced it didn't have a lot more to say then it was well maintained at their shop and was a lease.

    [–] The number of Delta Air Lines passengers who bought tickets with NRA discount: 13 drgncabe 2 points ago in nottheonion

    Yea I’m stupid. This is exactly what my last two companies did but for some reason my brain thought something else like grants or something. Not sure what I was thinking honestly. A previous company I worked for expanded by 800 people and threatened to move (with no intention to) and won a tax break that was almost insane when I was it. It was equal to what the company paid in local taxes the previous year x3.

    [–] A patient acquiring their own records from a PBM? drgncabe 1 points ago in PBM

    When I worked at ESI (13+ years ago) they had backups with PBM data going back 20+ years but accessibility can be difficult because a lot of that were backups of upgraded systems, implemented CMS systems, etc.. Legally they're only required to hold data going back 10 years from the most recent date of service (unless they're covered under another legal requirement or accreditation requirement that extends longer). Your chances of getting access to that older data will be slim unless it exists in the current CMS implementation. You are able to request your data that falls within the legal requirements though.

    That being said, don't expect them to make the process easy or explain the data once you got it. The few records request I dealt with when I worked on the specialty pharmacy side were basically internal reports with limited explanation and mostly industry jargon. If I recall correctly that included past statements, claims that were processed, progress notes related to patient treatment (but not internal notes unrelated to treatment) and faxed documents on hand. It did not include voice records, information on calls (other than what's covered in progress notes) and detail on how they make their decisions in various processes. PBM maybe different but at the time we followed the same set of rules.

    I'd go through customer service first, if they won't help you and you can't find a form, i'd send a certified letter asking for a copy of your patient records. You may have to be specific on what type of records your looking for or you may just receive patient statements.

    You can authorize the release of your records either by using their form or writing one your own (look online for examples). I do not know if you can do this as a minor though. They probably won't contact your parents but they might deny. I hate to say it, you generally don't need to prove it's you when you send a release consent. I've written many for my daughter during my divorce process years ago and not one person (insurance company, PBM, pharmacy or physician) questioned it and everytime I sent it by fax with no notification that it was coming. Almost scary when you think about it.

    [–] "How do I get all of my customers?" -Restaurant Cleaner, $1000 per night guy. drgncabe 3 points ago in Entrepreneur

    I can attest to this. A marketing manager for my previous pharmacy sent out an email blast to some 5k physicians and quickly ended us on several blacklists. It eventually took another domain to fully resolve the issue. We had critical pharmaceutical and payer clients that we couldn't communicate with, most would add us to the whitelist but just got too much to deal with.

    [–] I hope this doesn’t mean someone got downgraded... drgncabe 10 points ago in Justrolledintotheshop

    Just go the apple way. Make it really painful for them to use their car (pop up a loud warning every 5min saying it's time for updated brake pads) and then after X amount of time, just force a brake-pad update by accident. Right when you're about to use the car.

    [–] I hope this doesn’t mean someone got downgraded... drgncabe 1 points ago in Justrolledintotheshop

    My Friend's M3 ceramic brakes squeak like mad sometimes but I have a feeling it has to do with improper break-in and if you don't bed them right they'll get loud as hell. Another friend of mine has ceramics on his lifted Jeep (a Hemi fitted JK) and I've never heard it squeak. He drives pretty aggressively too.

    [–] Found in Crown Heights. Is this thing even street legal? drgncabe 4 points ago in Shitty_Car_Mods

    Depends on where you live. Here in Florida, there's a lot excluded from that list.

    Also Seat belts can be exempt depending on the age of the car. My cousin has a '33 Ford pickup that has no seat belts from factory.

    [–] What it costs to give birth in Sweden vs USA. drgncabe 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago) in pics

    I dunno, I busted my ass harder than I ever have in my 40-something years of living when I worked construction and my insurance was absolute crap. Now I work a desk job in healthcare and only had to pay $2k for a $85k hospital bill. I don't work nearly as hard today as I did when I did construction. You seem to not understand our healthcare system. It's not based on how hard you work, it's based on how much money you earn and what kind of insurance the company you work for has. Two completely different things.

    [–] What it costs to give birth in Sweden vs USA. drgncabe 1 points ago in pics

    I'm guessing you don't live in a state with high income taxes (like Cali or NY). Infact, the new tax bill will make it so you can't claim a deduction on your state taxes.

    I don't even live in NY but I'm paying NY Income tax because one of the companies I consult for reside in NY. Our taxes are probably just as BS as Sweden's is, minus the healthcare aspect.

    [–] What it costs to give birth in Sweden vs USA. drgncabe 2 points ago in pics

    $42k!? Shit my daughter cost $85k. $10k more and I could have owned a tesla (actual out of pocket was like $2k but I have really amazing insurance).

    Here in the states, presidents keep their title after their term. He will always be referred to as "Mr. President" just as Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr, etc.

    [–] I thought people might enjoy this - Orlando in 1904 (the Hotel San Juan on Orange Avenue) drgncabe 7 points ago in orlando

    The hotel was located in Orlando, Florida on the corner of Orange Avenue and Central Avenue. Harry Beeman of Beeman Chewing Gum purchased the hotel in 1889 and added two additional stories. The second floor was a favorite spot to view hangings at the Orange County Jail.

    Wow, I guess that was Orlando's favorite past-time back then?

    Reading through that post, that building led an interesting life before finally being demolished.

    What are your thoughts on floor outlets? My house has several of them in the floor and pointing up and they seem to be fine where they are but I wonder about spills. It's to code and inspected, just seems sketchy.

    [–] Dan Newlin is flying his personal jet back and forth to Puerto Rico delivering supplies and evacuating people. drgncabe 2 points ago in orlando

    That's the one! He's legit, been following and talking to him on and off for a while now. He can grandstand a little from time to time (just read his criticism of Sheriff Deming) but he's not one to embellish situations like this. Sadly I've heard similar stories second-hand from friends that grew up in some of the rural areas and are just now hearing back through family or friends, some parts are very post-apocalyptic life over there right now. There's quite a few journalists that are releasing their raw video from chopper runs and it's not looking very good. It doesn't help that many felt the government was abandoning them before the hurricane hit. The more that starts coming out, the more I can't help but wonder if things are worse off than what's being shown in the media. All the info seem to focus around the larger cities and surrounding villages, those are only a small portion of PR. I can understand why people feel like they're being forgotten.
