Securus Showing Industry How To Run Ethical Business Through BBB Accreditation

There are all sorts of ways to serve the criminal justice system. Just take a look at a company called Securus Technologies. This awesome company provides telephone and telecommunications services to prisons and jails through exclusive government contracts. If you have ever watched a documentary concerning a criminal, like Making A Murder, you have probably listened to some recorded phone calls into the prison. Those phone calls are serviced by companies like Securus. View the company profile on


But Securus goes above and beyond. They have this technology team that keeps updating their software and offering law enforcement different tools in order to make our community safer. They have come up with this crazy new software that allows law enforcement officials to search through an entire database of recorded phone calls. All they need to do is get the vocal signature of one person and the algorithm goes ahead and searches for every phone call that person ever made.


And the coolest thing about this company is that they do not take advantage of their customers. Their customers are the prisoners and they are literally locked up behind bars. Businesswise, it is like shooting fish in a barrel. They could choose to charge whatever they want but they keep the rates reasonable and keep offering new technologies to prisoners and their families.


They recently acquired a company named JPaythat is a leader in the telecommunications industry. This acquisition should allow prisoners more access to technology while keeping prices for the technology very reasonable. And it is customer service like this that has kept Securus at an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.


But the BBB recently bestowed accreditation on Securus. Accreditation is only given to companies that show high marks for integrity, trustworthiness, transparency, a commitment to privacy, and a commitment to honoring promises.

Looming courtroom battle between the former Hawks ownership and AIG insurance firm.

The previous ownership group of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise has taken legal action against AIG. According to the previous Hawks ownership group, which includes UCG founder Bruce Levenson, the lawsuit filed against the New Hampshire Insurance company alleges a violation of a contract agreement with the insurance firm concerning the settlement of claims. An official press release statement on Forbes by the current Hawks ownership led by the principal owner Tony Ressler, claims that the new regime is fully aware of the lawsuit although they are not part of it. The statement further adds that the principal parties behind the lawsuit no longer have existing connections with the NBA franchise.

The legal action taken by the previous Hawks ownership was prompted by the refusal of AIG to admit receipt of a notification of claim forwarded by Danny Ferry, the previous general manager of Hawks organization, and agree to settle the covered claims. The Hawks organization had taken insurance coverage with AIG against losses pertaining to employment practices. The cover included, but not restricted to, particular acts of unlawful termination as well as workplace torts.

In regards to the claim notice, there are court materials that prove that Hawks organization notified AIG that Danny Ferry had stated claims that in Hawks’ judgment were covered. So based on the aforementioned facts, the previous Hawks ownership firmly believes that AIG had no concrete reasons to neither argue that it wasn’t given a claim notice nor refute that its insurance policy didn’t cover the claim. Although the claim is confidential as proven by, the court documents, the claim seeks to obtain a further 50 % fine for the due loss and legal fees and expenses.

Bruce Levenson is the previous proprietor of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC. He boasts of a rich educational background having earned a law degree from the American University. He is the husband to Karen and a father of three sons. Apart from business, he also takes part in philanthropic activities and helped fund the center for Philanthropy and not-for-profit leadership at the University of Maryland.

Everything You Need to Know About Medicare Advantage Plans

People who have subscribed for Medicare can receive their coverage through either a Medicare Advantage or Original Medicare program. The two options are different and these differences are as a result of the amendments that were done to the Original Medicare plans to form Medicare Advantage. Original Medicare was administered through the federal government, but the new system can be accessed through private insurance companies.

Medicare Advantage plans cover Part A and B benefits just like it has been with the Original Medicare plans. Some plans also cover additional benefits like dental care, hearing and vision. If you need a service that is categorized as not necessary under your plan, you may be forced to cover all costs incurred, but there is also room for an appeal against the decision to deny you the right to enjoy cover. You can request an advance coverage decision, which lets you know in advance whether a particular service will be covered by the plan.

Enrolling for Medicare Advantage does not exempt you from paying monthly Part B premiums. Each Medicare Advantage plan should provide both Part A and Part B services that are offered by the Original Medicare, but there should be different restrictions and rules affecting how the care is administered. Note that every Medicare Advantage plan should specify a limit on your out-of-pocket expenses for both Part A and B services.
