  5. Shirk responsibility and you get failure
  6. Take ownership it is "your" pain

  1. Insurance companies makes decisions for profits
  2. You make wise decisions for "your" health
  3. Insurance controls doctors health care decisions
  4. Insurance allows 10 min for 30 minute procedure

Then we ask do you have garden variety-common-tension headaches, they say all my life !!!!
