Complementary medicine: outrage is completely spanned

Some people seem to feel by the mention of the term "complementary medicine" personally attacked. For you, it is clear that everything that is offered under this name, is hocus-pocus. And that for 2016, the basic insurance must, under certain conditions, definitely pay for all the people no less than the end of the enlightenment and the decline of the West.

It is not surprising therefore, that an evaluation of the health insurance Association Santésuisse, which has made the "Sunday newspaper" at the weekend public, ensures high waves. In fact, the result is unexpected: the Doctors, the practice in addition to conventional medicine and complementary medicine, should be per Patient, 22 percent more expensive, and for at least 10 years. The induced costs were included in pharmacies, laboratories and physiotherapy, the amount of the difference is still 11 percent, writes the Association in its almost written in the publication in the magazine "Infosantésuisse".

so Far, all were based on calculations from 2005 in the framework of the national programme for the Evaluation of complementary medicine, who also worked with data from Santésuisse and the opposite end of the mandatory: The cost at the expense of health care insurance per Patient per year are higher than for school medical practitioners. Who is right, will have to show more in-depth analyses. However, it is not so, that the new Santésuisse calculations authorize the previous studies on the topic of powder. On the contrary, There is considerable doubt as to the on one and a half pages selectively presented evidence.

What is not confirmed, but The costs run out of control, just because complementary medicine can now be partially charged to the basic insurance. Santésuisse writes that the complementary medicine have only a "small proportion" of the total pie of the basic insurance. It is, ultimately, to a few per Mille of the outpatient area.

The indignation, therefore, is mostly ideological in nature and essentially completely spanned. Ultimately, it distracts from the real problems in health care. Of homeopathy on traditional Chinese and Anthroposophical medicine to Phythotherapie each of the areas of complementary medicine have Strengths all of their own contradictions and problems and also. Admittedly unproven methods of treatment and placebo medicine are abundant. You may find it pushing that this is mandatory funding. But you can repeat it: In 2009, the Sovereign has voted two-thirds for a reasonable consideration is given to complementary medicine.

should, Instead of up in all of the times for it to execute, critics better on the true cost drivers, the unproven methods of treatment and placebo medicine in the school of medicine. It also, and lots of it. Often, hefty prices and not at all gently. As examples Recklessly prescribed antibiotics, a little effective Flu remedy to many gynecological smears, unnecessary meniscus surgery, hardly tested implants be listed here only a few keywords:.
