When it comes to choosing to fight the disease with powerful and expensive drugs or prolonging existence for a comfortable end-of-life with inexpensive pain killing drugs, the insurance companies will opt for the latter.
Death by committee.
Investor profits ensured.
Revenue enhanced.
Death Panels intact.
