Leading Provider of Affordable Health Insurance Urges for a Focus on Patient Care and Education, Not Quick Fixes

AVENTURA, Fla., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Cinergy Health, a nationwide provider of guaranteed issue health insurance benefit programs for the consumer market, expressed its concern for America's dependency on prescription drugs as a "quick fix" solution to all health issues.

"Michael Jackson's untimely death is drawing attention to America's crisis with over-medication. The health care system is broken because there is not enough focus on prevention and as a result, an alarming number of prescriptions are being written every minute that could have easily been avoided," said Steve Trattner, president and chief marketing officer of Cinergy Health. "If we can shift both the doctors' and patients' focus away from lazy treatments in pill form and towards active preventive measures through proper education, we will not only decrease our unnecessary dependence on prescription medicine, but also help to eliminate the overmedication of America and the misuse of prescription drugs in general."

"The other side to this story is the continuing upward pressure on insurance premiums as healthcare consumers and physicians depend too heavily on drugs rather than on better, healthier lifestyle choices. This is a prime area of focus to help ease the rising cost of healthcare in America," added Trattner.

Cinergy Health offers unique, affordable alternatives to exorbitant insurance premiums for individuals and families, regardless of income or health condition. Plans are designed to encourage people to seek care when needed, not to delay or deter them such that their condition could worsen.
