On 13 September 2011 The Huffington Post reported: According to new research, people with consistently high health care costs experienced a 28 percent cumulative decrease in physician fees after an average of five years practicing the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique compared with their baseline. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.

The news alert in the Huffington Post 'Healthy Living' section highlighted a report in Psych Central about a new research study published in the September/October issue of the American Journal of Health Promotion.

'This article has major policy significance for saving Medicare and Medicaid [US government-funded health care programs for the elderly] without cutting benefits or raising taxes,' said the paper's author, Robert E. Herron, Ph.D.

'Almost no intervention for cost containment has decreased medical expenditures by 28 percent over five years from a baseline. Now, it may be possible to rescue Medicare and Medicaid by adding coverage for learning the Transcendental Meditation technique.'
