A common conversation today is on insurance, specifically: health insurance. Health insurance is misunderstood so commonly because the term is incorrect to begin with. If health insurance companies were truly insuring your health, then more energy would be given to funding pre-unhealthy states of their members.
For instance, an insurance company would help pay for healthier food options, or pay for a trainer at your health club. To the contrary, what we see now is an insurance company that will pay for tubes in a child’s ears due to ear infections, however will not pay for conservative chiropractic care which has shown some great results with ear infections in children. Check out the research: Research: 93% of ear infections improve in children with chiropractic care
It would be interesting to see the business model of a true “health insurance” company develop. An insurance company that would pay for chiropractic services, nutrition, organic food choices could be a discount to the plan, etc.
Maybe health insurance needs a new name..sick insurance.
What are your thoughts?
