An embarrassment of linkage:

In no particular order:

■ Up to 3 million ObamaTax victims enrollees stand to forfeit their subsidies next year because they're behind on filing their taxes:

"Fully 40% of taxpayers who received ObamaCare subsidies last year haven't filed their taxes yet and are at risk of losing their subsidies for next year"

This, in addition to looming rate increases - Yikes!

■ Fear of going to the dentist is a major issue for a lot of folks; in fact, it affects 75% of us to some extent. But that may become a thing of the past with new Scottish tech (no, not that Scottish tech):

"Remineralization is a natural process ... Reminova's prototype device can speed up this process to the same amount of time it would take to have a filling -- but painlessly, without injections and drilling.'"

Sign me up!

■ LifeHealthPro's Allison Bell alerts us to something that's generally been under the radar:

"[I]nsurers that participated in Gen Re's latest critical illness issuer survey reported a total of $380 million in 2014 critical illness premium revenue, up 15 percent from the 2013 total."

It seems that the Critical Illness (CI) market is exploding, and it's not difficult to understand why: these plans pay actual cash dollars to their insureds who suffer a listed condition (such cancer or stroke).

Something to consider if you have one of the new high out-of-pocket ObamaPlans.
