Why Medically Necessary Tests and Treatments Are Not Medically Indicated?
Kaiser Permanentes top secret health care test and treatment denial reason is stated as NOT MEDICALLY INDICATED. HINT: This doesnt mean that the test and treatment is NOT MEDICALLY NECESSARY. Managed care patients dont get knee/hip replacements, heart surgery, cancer therapy, and out of plan referrals, even if the tests and treatments are MEDICALLY NECESSARY. Kaisers Appeals Committee refuses to answer.
Although Kaiser may admit that your tests, treatments, surgery, drugs, and referrals, both in and out of plan, are MEDICALLY NECESSARY, denials based on NOT MEDICALLY INDICATED occur, because Kaiser doctors are unqualified, Kaiser hospitals/equipment are substandard, and Kaisers credo not to show patients the money.

I suppose you have not realized most all else is communistic in this country?? It's Obamorons that are ruining this country and even Bushites, and Clintonites. All these scum in office are pro-war, pro-debt, pro-tyranny. Wake up and smell the feces! Freya-dom of choice means CRAP when they (corporations. demopublicans, republicraps)are all screwing the people over.

If the insurance companies are making money off the system why not the doctors too. They simply want their piece of the action while in the meantime the actual patients get gouged.
