Which Insurance carrier most friendly to alt medicine?

Just got my first job out of college and looking at the options for medical insurance. I got CIGNA, Lumenos, UnitedHealth and Aetna to choose from. Which one is the friendliest toward alternative medicine?

Cigna does NOT cover it as they consider it experimental, I believe UnitedHealth also does NOT cover it.

I am unsure about Lumenos.

Aetna actually has an alternative health care program. I would choose Aetna for a variety of reasons including their approach to alternative medicine.

My opinions, of course.

Aetna, it is more open to experimental diagnostics and treatment. Tho most alternative meds are experimental (aside from the herbs that have been around for thousands of years)new herbs are still considered experimental at this time, just like conventional meds.
