Keep In This in Mind....

From Mötley:

"If obesity gains acceptance as a disease, it could open the doors for significant new spending on treatments. Is a payday on the way for some companies helping to fight America's new epidemic disease?

Echo effect
Before we get ahead of ourselves, keep in mind that the AMA's decision doesn't mean much on its own. No insurance company or governmental agency is obligated to begin paying for additional treatments just because the AMA now calls obesity a disease.

However, as the largest organization in the nation representing physicians, the AMA carries considerable weight (no pun intended). Already, other influential parties are echoing the decision made by the AMA.

For example, Sens. Tom Carper and Lisa Murkowski and Reps. Bill Cassidy and Ron Kind jointly wrote an op-ed piece in the New York Times commending the AMA's action. The legislators have introduced a bill in both chambers of Congress to allow Medicare to reimburse for obesity drugs and promote intensive behavioral counseling for obesity. This bill is bipartisan. Carper and Cassidy are Democrats, while Murkowski and Kind are Republicans"

-------------------------
And Remember, It was Congress who requested the HHS , and FDA do something about the obesity epidemic,before Bellviq was approved, so it is highly likely that there has been a plan all along to make obesity a disease.
