Anthem Blue Cross faces class-action lawsuit as rate hike decision looms
I don't understand why everyone is so up in arms. This is the system we want. At least it is the system everyone is so concerned about getting rid of.
Health care providers increase their prices, health insurance companies follow suit, and the consumer gets screwed.
That's the way the free market, fee-for-service health care works. If you don't like it, move to Europe, where health care is patient focused not provider insurance focus.
Wake up America!
The extremely patient focused health care providers that I work for have not increased their prices since 2003. In those 7 years, the employees insurance premiums have gone up each year. At the end of 2009, when faced with a 40% increase in premiums from the plan we had, we were forced to move to a different plan. This free-market system is a little more "free" for some than it is for others. None of the guys I work for ever made the Forbes list and never will. Can you help me understand why an arrogant Insurance company CEO is worth a salary over ten times more than a doctor who actually might be saving lives?
