Postmenopausal hormone therapy increases use of health services
This started as more of a rhetorical question, but continues to gain some urgency…”Why the heck is this class of drugs still on the market?” We see no benefit with the exception of short term hot flash management, and here we see the use of HRT associated with (as Ross Perot would put it…) a “huge sucking sound” on healthcare dollars. And this class of drugs is STILL covered by insurance!! Talk about reimbursing for medical “un” necessity!! But they won’t reimburse for massage therapy because there’s not enough evidence.
