memorial DayWelcome to the 184th edition of Cavalcade of Risk.

Were excited to be able to be hosting this week!

Even though Memorial Day was Monday, it’s only fitting to continue to honor those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in protecting our freedom.

Today’s edition goes out to all the real heroes.

This weeks submissions

Jason Shafrin of the Healthcare Economist, post about the Health Care Spending Slowdown. Has the risk of Medicare bankruptcy decreased? The Healthcare Economist review recent evidence from Health Affairs.

Health Business Blog posted “I’m not worried about an Obamacare induced fast food shortage“.Some say there’s a high risk that implementation of the Affordable Care Act will obliterate the fast food industry. Relax, it’s not going to happen

Nina Kallen of the Insurance Coverage Law in Massachusetts posted the “The Terrorism Risk Insurance Act should be amended“. Nina Kallen argues here, that the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act should be amended when it comes up for renewal in 2014. As it now stands, insurers charge an additional premium for terrorism coverage even though the government acts as a reinsurer and pays the claims. Instead, terrorism coverage should be made a standard part of general liability policies for no additional premium, and the government should pay insurers to administer the claims. That way, businesses will have the coverage they need and insurers will be paid for the work that they do.

Henry Stern, LUTCF, CBC from the InsureBlog posted about the “Buying and selling HIPAA“. He says, “Although life insurance can be a great risk management tool, especially in business, there may be some unforeseen risks lurking in the delivery process.”

Jason Hull of Hull Financial Planning posted “Did You Serve in Combat? Check Your Portfolio!“. He says, “Recent research from Cornell University shows that combat veterans aren’t taking enough risk in their investment portfolios compared to the population at large, and their portfolio imbalances could have detrimental impacts on their retirement lifestyles.”

RJ Weiss from Weissins Blog says, “Auto insurance mistakes parents make with teen drivers, that cost time and money.”
