Also, on this site I have the widget from Microsoft and Emory University link as a Question and Answer page to help individuals determine if they or someone they know could be infected.  The site is using Microsoft Azure technology in the cloud.  Homeland Security also has an excellent 30 minute educational video on the H1N1 virus to include history and much more.  BD


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCBS)  -- State Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner Wednesday announced that six major private health insurance companies have agreed to waive co-pays and deductibles for H1N1 vaccinations.

While many Californians already have access to free immunizations against swine flu through clinics and HMO plans, subscribers with PPO plans would've had to pay as much as $50 to be vaccinated.

Poizner said Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, CIGNA, HealthNet and UnitedHealth/Pacificare ultimately agreed that preventing vaccination from being cost prohibitive is an important step toward preventing a pandemic.
