LM Sixel offers some good advice on using your health insurance  That is to know who and where “IN network” providers are in your neighborhood or town.  This is so you can be prepared if you need to go to a medical provider in an emergency.

Alyson Ward give a short critique  on 6 smartphone apps to “help users get healthier”.
