    Thanks Rich, I think this is good news for many peoiple. I know that my son did not receive many services that he needed because of the restrictions set by the insurance company. For many years our insurance would only cover one therapy session per month and, of course, our co payment was higher.

    Thanks for the info Rich.

    I wonder if, with this new equality of coverage, there would be less financial incentive for the insurance industry to promote the classification of CFS as a psychiatric disease (as they clearly have up til now).
