Anonymous sums it it well from here , about the insurance industry not wanting to pay out long term disability insurance to CFS patients, and the ineptness of the CDC:

Others, including myself, have long believed your arguments were the case for the extreme neglect, actually, deliberate criminal intent by the CDC as a whole and those that ran the CDC/CFS program. ..... Dig some more and see if you can't find documents or people that will tell you if there was some sort of concerted plan to keep the CFS sick from getting insurance disability when the AIDS/HIV people were getting it - but as I have said elsewhere, those AIDS/HIV people "were well behaved and died quickly" while the CFIDS people stayed terribly sick and disabled for years and decades."
