Deputy Assistant Secretary for Healthcare Quality: Cover the cost of in-patient care for eating disorder sufferers

Without assisted financial aid, many who are suffering from eating disorders can not pay for the necessary treatment. They get sicker and sicker and some eventually lose this on-going battle. It can be a life-long disease, yet insurance companies refuse to acknowledge that it involves more than just the "food" aspect. With it, comes a variety of psychological and emotional issues, such as anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorders. Lets end this ban and seek recovery!
