You people don't think we're heading for government-mandated coverage for literally every kooky health anomaly, real or imagined? Read about this...[Emphasis mine]
The House of Representatives passed a bill Wednesday that would require health insurers to cover treatments for addiction and mental conditions the same way they provide for physical illnesses.
The bill, which was approved 268-148, would broaden coverage to virtually every type of mental illness.
So everybody from peeping toms, flashers, cross-dressers, kleptomaniacs, arachniphobics, and bogyphobics(afraid of the boogyman), to fibromyalgia, laziness, apathy, chronic joblessness.....you name it. Literally any idiotic "disorder" or "syndrome" a quack doctor can dream up and name for himself will qualify as insurable. And along with psycho-treatment, the "sufferers" will get paid time off work and prescription drugs too. This is every shrinks dream bill.
Hey, here's a sufferer of Canine-Flasher's syndrome. His employer's insurance carrier must be made to pay for the treatment he deserves.
