Disability Counter Surveillance - Women, Contraceptives, And The Bottom Line
Seattle (ESTRA) - Insurance companies and self-insured employers would benefit from the exclusion of additional health care services. When they make the decision of what's included and excluded, most would choose services that reduce bottom line expenses over insureds health care needs.
It will not only be long term disability harassment of insureds, women services might be next, and others will also follow. Have we become so complacent as citizens and so narrow minded that we would allow a few handfuls of individuals to change the direction of our health systems? If so, what's next to go?
We know there are many injustices before us. We should be proactive. What's stopped us? Fear? Personal problems? The issues at hand are larger than any single person or family. It is the destiny of a country. A country where many have died so that we can have a fair and just health care system. Policies have continued to decrease in coverage over the last decade.
Most of us sooner or later may be their primary target. Are you awake now? Can we count on you?
