Insurance data show more people seeking Lyme treatment

Medical services to people suffering from Lyme disease jumped 185 percent in rural areas and 40 percent in urban areas nationwide over a nine-year period, according to new research from a national nonprofit.
Local experts said this could be one of the worst summers ever for tick-borne diseases such as Lyme.
FAIR Health, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing transparency to health care costs and insurance information, examined its database of more than 23 billion privately billed health care claims, and tracked lines (or medical codes) associated with Lyme disease in health insurance claims between 2007 and 2016. The study found big jumps in the number of claims and distinct differences based on where people were living. READ MORE.

It has crossed my mind that the idiocracy at the CDC may not just be coming from Pharma and the lack of a marketable vaccine, but from the Pharma-Insurance complex. For the sake of argument, if 20% of the adult population of the USA has Borreliosis, even if most are relatively asymptomatic at any one moment, do you (as an insurance company) want to be obligated for paying for Lyme treatments that often go on for years and all the ancillary care and rehabilitation, etc that often goes with it?
Of course you don’t… there goes the profits!
So, given that Lyme is a plague…. and it would bankrupt you as an insurance carrier…. there is only one thing to do… deny there is a problem. You will pay prostitute academicians to make sure they deny the plague (Pharma has nothing to sell after all).
I don’t know how I missed this connection all these years.
