    White House officials pushed to ban conversion therapy for LGBT youths, pointing to new findings that debunk the therapy. A ban on the conversion therapy for minors was introduced in Congress on Thursday, following a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. "The science rebukes this so-called practice and so do we," White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett told reporters on a call Thursday. The report from the administration includes a consensus from an expert panel held by the American Psychological Association earlier this summer.The panel found that variations in "sexual orientation and gender identity are normal,...

    The mandatory imposition of the World Health Organization's classification of diseases (ICD-10th revision) upon the practice of medicine and all allied professions including psychology on October 1, 2015 is a major step in the radical transformation of the United States into a subjugated territory of a one-world regime under the auspices of the United Nations. ICD-10 imposes the pre-scientific mentality and anti-American jealousy of backward peoples by undermining one hundred years of research and improved treatment methods in psychology and psychiatry. And the American medical establishment – providers, insurers, researchers, corporations and business, courts, and social services agencies – are...

    You won’t read about the International Classification of Disease (ICD) on TMZ or hear it discussed on The View, but it has the potential to be an unpleasant October surprise in the health care world. It is a list of codes that physicians and hospitals use when billing insurance companies. These codes cover all manner of medical diagnoses for diseases, conditions, and injuries. The first version of the ICD appeared in 1946, with periodic revisions since. Six months from now, on October 1, the latest version, the ICD-10, will be implemented in the U.S. We are late to the party,...

    Reolubin is one of the country’s 186,000 medical coders who work in the back offices of hospitals. It’s her job to translate doctors’ scribbles into diagnosis codes. Those are sent to insurance companies, which use them to determine how much to pay hospitals for care. With 14,000 codes, ICD-9 seems puny by comparison. The new manual explodes that code set to 68,000 much more granular and detailed terms to define — very exactly and specifically — what ails us. There are different numbers for getting struck or bitten by a turkey (W61.42 or W61.43). There are codes for injuries caused...
