The Candidates’ Policies on Alternative Medicine

I was interested to learn that both Presidential candidates have taken a stand on the inclusion of alternative medicine in health care insurance.

In their health care proposals, Obama and McCain have the following differences.

Senator Obama supports preventative medical care and, under his plan, it is far more likely that insurance plans will cover alternative medicine, including acupuncture, therapy, and government approved herbs and vitamins.

This category alone could more than double the current spending by pharmaceutical companies and would give a boost to local market media as alternative care centers compete with traditional medicine. On the other hand, McCain has not come out in favor of the inclusion of alternative medicine in health insurance.
