When Buying Furniture, Don't Always Trust the Tags

Every year, Americans spend $78 billion on furniture.

But are buyers really getting what they think at nationwide stores like Kmart, Ashley and World Market?

The federal government used to set specific standards for furniture labeling, but dropped the rules four years ago after the industry complained the standards were outdated.

Because the furniture industry is not specifically regulated by the government, there's plenty of potential for confusion.

"Good Morning America" purchased four different pieces of furniture and sho

Beauty :: How Much Is A Mommy Makeover?

What is a "Mommy Makeover?"

A mommy makeover is aimed at women of child bearing age and focuses on the two body parts that are almost always affected by pregnancy and aging, the breasts and abdomen. Post-Baby Bodies is another term for the "Mommy Makeover." It often includes a breast augmentation (with or without a lift) and a tummy tuck.

The price of mommy makeover will vary due to several factors including:

-The location of the cosmetic surgery clinic (city vs. smaller town). -Where the surgery is performed (outpatient vs. hospital). -The combination of which cosmetic surgeries are being performed. -The surgeon's, nursing and anesthesia fees.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons the average cost of a mommy makeover averages between $12,000 - 14, 000 depending on the factors above. It is important when you have a consultation with a Board-Certified cosmetic surgeon that you know exactly what you are paying for and what fee's are included in your quote.

There are many cosmetic surgery clinic's that offer all-inclusive quotes, which means that there are no hidden fee's and you pay only one fee for your surgery. Pain medications to help control discomfort after surgery are generally covered by insurance and not included in your surgical quote.

Recent studies, by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, have pointed out a high number of women and "moms" seeking to reverse the impact of pregnancy and aging on their bodies. Pregnancy affects each woman differently, with age and genetics playing a role in how the body recovers or ages.

With cosmetic surgery becoming a main stream phenomenon, women no longer have to accept their deflated or sagging breasts, and lose or stretched skin on their stomachs, from having their children like the generations of women before.

We have found that the majority of women seeking cosmetic surgery after pregnancy are in fact uncomfortable and embarrassed with their bodies and just want to feel "normal" again.

Twenty years ago, a woman did not think she could do something about it, and she covered up with discreet clothing. But now women don't have to go on feeling self-conscious or resentful about their cosmetic surgeon salary appearance. This is because 20 years ago cosmetic surgery was only for the rich and famous, considered vain and was not talked about.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) doctors nationwide performed over 325,000 "mommy makeover procedures" in 2006. This is up 11% from 2005.

The majority of women do not view cosmetic surgery as the easy way out of exercising or going to the gym. In fact, many women have already spent months in the gym with a trainer before they even seek out the opinion of a board certified cosmetic surgeon. There are some things going to the gym just can't fix.

When it can be done safely, the "mommy makeover" of a post baby body offers many advantages. There is only one surgery, therefore one recovery period, which means less down time at home or away from work!

Pain Management Coding. - Free Online Library

Proper coding and billing of pain management services rates a

discomfort level of about 8 on the 10-point McGill pain pattern scale.

Medicare coverage guidelines vary from state to state. Because pain

management reimbursement policies are carrier-specific, practices should

review local medical review policy for each type of procedure performed.

Medicare's billing guidelines do not always correspond to medical

practice. Non-Medicare carriers, private and noncommercial carriers, may

provide reimbursement for services that are routinely denied for

coverage by Medicare. Contact each payer to be certain of its policy.
