    Good article overall. Still a sad commentary that Americans are un or under insured compared to pretty much the rest of the world.

    Good article, and agree with MunchkinMunchkin. It's so sad that companies can opt out, so to speak, of covering medically necessary care for MO people.
    I particularly liked that the article discussed the so-called medical facilitators. They add absolutely nothing to the benefit of the patients, and, if anything, will refer them only to the doctors/facilities that pay them for the referral. Just another way to take advantage of desperate people.
