    That sounds fine, so long as no one expects the insurance company to pay for their medical expenses.

    Paying for medical expenses based on one's benefits is what insurance companies do. Providing medical diagnosis/recommendations is NOT. That's what physicians do.

    Let's not forget that there are some doctors who go nuts spending the insurance company's money. I have a neighbor and a sister who I feel have been physically abused by their doctors by doing tests and surgeries that did no good, and in fact caused some harm.

    You would prefer that insurance companies diagnose and treat you?

    You want the same guys who are paying for it, and trying to save every dollar, decide what your problem is and how to treat it?

    I sure don't.

    You can refuse tests and surgery, you know. And if they do harm, and it was intentional or negligent, you can sue.

    The average person is pretty much at the mercy of the "professionals".
    My sister just got a torn ligament in her foot, her doctor did it, by having her push way too hard against his hands while he was "diagnosing". She already has dying bones, lupus, fibromyalgia, RA, etc. and he kept telling her to push harder. She TRUSTED him, now she will be wearing a boot for a long time. Torn ligaments don't heal quickly...
    My elderly neighbor has had several surgeries for back pain, hip pain, etc. and none of them killed the pain. Their latest diagnosis is poor leg circulation.
    If you have medicare, or any form of good insurance, some of the doctors see you as a cash cow....

    And that's the problem.

    Sue him. Or at least ask for compensation.
