But remember, it’s the evil government that we have to protect these companies from…
The insurance industry has a tendency to make itself unsympathetic. There is of course the case of the Aetna student health plan holder who had to resort to twitter to get the company to actually pay for his cancer therapy…
…and now we have this appalling case out of Baltimore. But we must remember of course, that it’s the eeeeebul gubmint ‘crats that are trying to take away our right to be served by these wonderful private companies.
Feeling a bit churlish today.
Scanning through the comments, it would appear that the usual scolds have taken me to task for being mad that the insurance companies are doing their jobs and doing socially optimal behavior, etc. etc.
The point of the OP (it being off the cuff and rather churlish at that) was simply that companies aren’t your friends and have their own interests in mind. And often this self-interest has nothing to do with the well being of a client.
