Who is Jane or John Doe in Your Life?

One of our intentions with creating ICEdot was to create a small chink in the health care chain that could have a big impact on results.  Health care in this country is confusing.  We’ve read many stories about the nightmares people have in trying to navigate the financial waters as a result to medical expenses or denial of health insurance.  Maybe you have one of those stories?

We’d like to invite you to share your story about someone you know or perhaps your own story of the difficulties you’ve had with health care.  The winner of the blog contest will receive $2,000 towards their medical expenses.   Enter the contest through our Facebook page.  We’re asking you to write your story on your own blog.  If you don’t have a blog you may email us your submission and we’ll post it on ours.  For those of you that do have a blog we’ll be promoting your posts on our Facebook page.  The deadline for submissions is Monday, March 12th, 2012.  The stories will be judged by a panel comprised of ICEdot staff.  The winner will be notified via email and announced on our web site and Facebook page on Friday, March 16th at 10am Central.  More details can be found at: http://site.icedot.org/site/j-doe-contest/

As stated earlier, ICEdot can increase the efficiency of care for medics in case of emergency (ICE).  That’s a small step towards solving a very big problem.   Likewise, $2,000 may not seem like much when it comes to medical bills but we hope it’s a small step forward.

Below are some examples we’ve found out in the blogosphere on this topic.  Please note that these blogs are intended to be used as reference only.
