Should Insurance Pay for Acupuncture or Aromatherapy?

"Alternative medicine" is a burgeoning business and I think most people would agree that it has its share of hucksters, so the question of what types of "alternative" procedures your health insurance company should pay for is a potentially huge deal.  The Wall Street Journal has a great article about the issue, and with the incoming Obama administration putting health care reform near the top of its domestic agenda I think that the question of coverage of "alternative medicine" is going to be a potentially divisive point in the debate.

Hat tip to Ed Cone for the pointer.
