■ As Isaac continues to pound the Gulf region, at least one insurer has thrown out a lifeline:

"Aetna is making it easier for members affected by Hurricane Isaac to refill prescriptions and behavioral health programs. We are also extending claim and appeal filing times, and helping members who have evacuated find care outside of their homes"

If you're an Aetna health plan member, they've got a list of toll-free numbers available - drop us a line or leave a request in the comments and we'll be happy to pass them along.

■ It's been a while since we've heard anything about the Life Partners fiasco. Now comes word that the folks behind it have been granted their request for "a full evidentiary hearing before a Texas state agency," to begin in September.

Interestingly, it appears that they've been allowed to continue doing business in the meantime. They're supposed to pay a dividend mid-September, but that's currently on hold pending another injunction. And, of course, there's still the on-going Federal case.

Oy, what a mess.
