Health care discounts, online budgeting on H&FF Radio
WASHINGTON (1/28/13)--Last Sunday's H&FF Radio covered easy online budgeting and saving, negotiating health care discounts, and companies that annoy consumers yet offer good stock values.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, featured Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Mvelopes and American Debt." Steven B. Smith, chairman and president/CEO, Finicity, Draper, Utah, shared details about his free online budgeting system and ways to save in 2013.
  • "Six Ways to Negotiate Doctor Bills." Caroline Mayer, blogger, NextAvenue, Washington, D.C., said it's often possible to get health care discounts, if you ask.
  • "Irritating Companies." Kathy Kristof, contributing editor, Kiplinger Personal Finance, Washington, D.C., gave tips about companies that infuriate customers but are great firms for investors.
Home & Family Finance is a resource center for personal finance information at the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
