    Thanks to Obamacare you can now get it.

    I hope everybody that ever supported this monstrosity chokes on the stuff they have to pay for now. Please, keep telling me how I want people to die in the streets because I oppose government mandated insurance. This is the type of shit everyone who considers themselves rational should stand up and demand be excluded from insurance, not covered by it.

    I wouldn't object if only the chiros were legit and didn't just look at an xray, say you have a twisted spine or some shit, and then claim it'll take 6 sessions at $95 per session to fix the problem, and then have you walk out in worse shape than you walked in.

    Chiropractors are bullshit artists.

    Chiropractor and legit are two words that do not belong in the same sentence.

    If there's one thing we must not allow its people buying their own insurance and then getting the coverage they paid for.

    Whether its birth control or acupuncture - you should not be allowed to pay for your own health care insurance and then not get what you paid for.

    Every policy sold in California will cover acupuncture and chiropractor visits because the state has decided it is mandatory. This has nothing to do with what people buy, it has everything to do with what people are selling. Welcome to your world.

    No they don't, most people are smart enough not to buy insurance that covers magical thinking.

    Mine does. I've had both and ins paid for both. Both were referred by my primary physician.

    I have BC/BS.

    Oh and, both worked quite well. Especially acupuncture. But, I'm sure you know a lot more than several thousand years of use. LOL

    FYI, in case someone wants to know ... Acupuncture works incredibly well for smoking cessation.
