When medical decisions have been removed from the doctor/patient by allowing insurance companies to agree to pay for what is/isn't being done, based on its own definitions of "standards of care", and especially the ability to deny care based on its own definition of "experimental procedures" it is dangerous.

Not even talking about cancellation of coverage when one is already sick, denial based on pre-existing conditions, etc. These abuses are shameful/immoral.
