What you need to know about how the NFL’s health plan works

By CBS News Staff Writer The NFL Players Association has joined the battle against a proposed plan that would cut benefits and raise taxes on millions of players, including many veterans.

The players are suing the league and its commissioner, Roger Goodell, alleging the plan would cost them millions of dollars and harm their health.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday seeks class-action status and a court order that would require the league to reveal the cost of the plan.

The union says the plan, called the Deferred Retirement System (DRS), would cost the league $2 billion a year and take years to implement.

The NFLPA says the plans proposed by the NFL, including the DRS, would allow NFL players to retire at 65 and retire at 62 years old.

The league says the DRs are necessary for players to play, and would not affect the health of players.

The plan would allow players to continue to earn the maximum salary of $11 million a year after they have played for more than 30 seasons.

It also says the NFLPA’s proposal would eliminate the team salary cap, which currently stands at $200 million, to be $110 million, with the cap set to rise to $140 million by 2022.

The union says players would be paid an average of $6,600 a week in retirement benefits, and that the plan “would significantly increase the cost” of health care for players.

The NFLPA contends that the NFL could pay all players a salary equal to or higher than the current salary cap of $170 million.

The league says it is “committed to ensuring every player has access to affordable, high-quality, affordable health care.”

The union’s lawsuit is the latest effort to make the issue a political issue.

Last week, Democratic U.S. senators and representatives in Congress introduced a resolution that would prevent the NFL from introducing a new plan before the 2020 season begins.

The measure would also call for a review of the existing health insurance plans.

The NBA and NHL both have similar plans.

Energy medicine doctor says children need help with autism

A US energy medicine doctor has told ABC’s 7.30 that children need more support in the field.

Dr Paul Siegel, a pediatrician at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, said in an interview with 7.60 he was surprised by the results of a survey conducted by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in 2016.

“We asked people what their expectations are of what they can expect when they have a child with autism,” Dr Siegel said.

“And we also asked them about their expectations of what their child needs, what their mother needs, and what they expect their siblings to do.”

Dr Siegel is the author of “Babies and Autism” and “Autism: The Unknown Threat” which focuses on the autism spectrum disorder.

“What I see, as a parent, is that there’s a lot of anxiety, a lot the expectation of what your child’s going to look like and what their personality is going to be,” he said.

Dr Shesis said many parents in the US and in Australia were “nervous about their children with autism” and that was “very hard” for the children.

“But what we really see is a lot more of a desire for what they’re going to want, for their siblings, and they’re expecting more of their family members,” he added.

Dr Ryan Aaronson, a paediatrician at the University of Adelaide, told 7.10 he was also surprised by his survey results.

“It was the most disappointing thing I’ve ever heard,” Dr Aaronson said.

Why do doctors think you have chronic pain?

When I was diagnosed with chronic pain at the age of five, my doctor told me I needed a spinal tap.

She gave me a prescription for oxycodone, and I took it as prescribed.

When the prescription ran out, she sent me to the emergency room.

The doctor told the nurse I was on morphine.

The nurse said, “Don’t worry, I have morphine for you.”

The doctor then asked, “What are you doing?”

I explained that I was taking a painkiller called codeine to manage my symptoms, but I didn’t want to take any more codeine because it made me sleepy and had a tendency to make me sleepy even when I wasn’t taking any.

She asked, with a bit of incredulity, “But you’re not going to sleep anyway.”

The nurse was not amused.

She told me to stop taking the morphine and I did.

After a few days, my symptoms began to improve.

But then the pain got worse, and by the time I was discharged, I was already using a new painkiller that was much more potent than the one my doctor prescribed.

My pain got even worse when I was in the emergency department.

I had to be admitted to the hospital again because I was so tired.

It took me four days to be discharged from the hospital because I had already taken the morphine.

My doctor told my family that I had chronic pain.

I told them I didn
