I don't think having life and death decisions made in some back office of an insurance agency who fights tooth and nail to prevent you from knowing anything is a good idea. Maybe some people do?

    There is a law of diminishing returns - more than that and it becomes cheaper just to fly people in and out. Remember it is not always JUST the specialist - for every specialist there is about half a million dollars worth of infrastructure - at least
