Way to go Brazilian Government

The National Health Agency passed new requirements for Brazilian private Healthcare.  They are requiring that healthcare include 70 procedures not previously included in basic private healthcare coverage.  70! That's amazing!  Here's a vague downlow on which ones:

16 are dental
The other 54 are advance medicine like surgeries done in a less invasive manner, bone marrow transplants, genetic testing, and my personal favorite, the PET scan!

They are also requiring the healthcare companies to increase the number of psychologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, and Speech-language pathologists.

Well done Brazilian government!! Big gold star for you!!

Here's the original article, in Portuguese:
