This is certainly a telling revelation. And if you've been following Natural Health News and Creating Health Institute you've been well aware for decades that Big Insurance does control the health care delivery system.
Certainly it controls the fact that unless you pay on your own, you won't get thermography, the earlier detection system fro breast cancer by a decade. It certainly limits your access to care of your choice, even natural health care options.
While this article refers to breast cancer therapy, please understand that Big Insurance has its greedy fingers in every health care diagnosis.
It also is chafing at the bit to control the new and hybrid health care approach, scathingly referred to as "integrative", "complementary", "alternative", "holistic", and even the newly created form called "naturopathic medicine" (not the real naturopathy of my work since the late 60s and that many of several of my colleagues).
And you can be sure this control will have nothing to do to control health care costs and improve delivery. It will surely aim to lower reimbursement rates and more out of pocket costs for you.
