Someone told me long ago that medical doctors have to offer statins if cholesterol numbers are high....or else they can be sued.

Shelley,
It is more about reimbursement. If a patient comes in and their BP is high and the md does not address it whether counseling was put in the chart regarding diet changes or the patient was put on meds the MD will not be reimbursed for the visit. At least that is how it is in the er. Our providers are being ding constantly because a person may come in with a finger laceration and their BP is high and the provider didn't address it in their charting. It is a no win situation...........
