Aetna health insurance company: The peer reviewed medical literature does not support Graded exercise therapy (GET) in the diagnosis or treatment of individuals with CFS

Source: Aetna's Clinical Policy Bulletin for CFS

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Aetna, Inc. (pronounced /ˈɛtnə/; NYSE: AET) is an American health insurance company, providing a range of traditional and consumer directed health care insurance products and related services, including medical, pharmaceutical, dental, behavioral health, group life, long-term care, and disability plans, and medical management capabilities. Aetna is a member of the Fortune 100.

In 2005, the company had $1.1 billion in earnings.
Aetna's 2007 revenue, reported in 2008, was $27.6 billion.
Aetna's 2008 revenue, reported in 2009, was $31 billion.

In 2000 Deadria Farmer-Paellmann, head of the nonprofit Restitution Study Group of Hoboken, New Jersey, disclosed that from approximately 1853 to approximately 1860 Aetna had issued life insurance policies to slaveowners covering the lives of their slaves.[67]

Aetna acknowledged that concrete evidence exists for Aetna issuing coverage for the lives of slaves and released a public apology.[68]

If you look at Aetna's policy on "CFS" (the deem it synonymous with ME by the way) NOTHING is considered appropriate treatment for said CFS. The list of what they don't cover in terms of testing and treatment is frighteningly specific.
