Insulin plays major role in breastmilk production
Insulin plays major role in breastmilk production (July 8, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Washington - A new report published in Health Affairs finds that Medicaid programs frequently do not provide coverage for preventive care. Researchers studied reviewed the Medicaid policies of all 50 states. They found that most policies did not cover all of the preventive services--such as colorectal cancer screening, cholesterol testing, and diet counselling--that are recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force. They also found that while most provided coverage for mammograms, not all of the programs offered this care to existing beneficiaries. Further, the analysis revealed that states rarely cover preventive care such as genetic testing for the BRCA1 gene.
