California to Investigate High Rates of Claims Rejections

No sooner had I posted that private insurers already do come between you and your doctor and that they often reject claims for coverage thus resulting in denying coverage and leading to the single most reason for individual bankruptcies in the country, BUT even resulting in death, that I came across this. Look at the numbers: In California from 2002 to 2009, 22% OF ALL CLAIMS WERE REJECTED. To reiterate the insanity of this argument below, learn that PacifiCare rejected nearly 40% of ALL CLAIMS during this time. Is that what the fucking wacko's are protesting? You gotta' read it to believe it. Click on the link.

California to Investigate High Rates of Claims Rejections: "Six of the state’s largest insurers rejected 45.7 million claims for medical care, or 22% of all claims, from 2002 to June 30, 2009, according to the California Nurses Assn.’s analysis of data submitted to regulators by the companies.
The rejection rates ranged from a high of 39.6% for PacifiCare to 6.5% for Aetna for the first half of 2009. Cigna denied 33%, and Health Net 30%."
