  •  That's their job, to deny claims (4+ / 0-)

    It's how they measure succes.  Take the health insurance industry, they measure the medical loss ratio, which goes up when too many sick patients are treated.  Profits go up when that ratio goes down.  Big salaries are paid to people who devise new ways to deny claims.  

    These are the people Americans want in charge of their health care.  Not doctors, but business dorks.
