TY. We need to be informed so that when the bills come before public opinion, we can contact our reps and voice our concern. It seems that when a congressional representative or committee make a determination, the outcome often reflects when one does not have personal experience in one case or another and draws conclusions from the view of only one paradigm. I believe you are right and there is reason for concern, whether intentional on the committee's part or not.
If you have not had opportunity, I posted earlier regarding the CT State Rep introducing a bill to protect doctors. If we watch this bill move forward and if it passes, it will establish a precedence that can be taken to each state with hope of likewise. This would then offer the bridge to cover a physician's ability to treat the individual.
