Health Insurance Companies Support Death Panels




















Insurance companies are kind of right – death panels do exist. They ought to know because they invented the concept.

Tracy Pierce was denied life-saving treatments by his medical insurance provider. He died on January 18, 2006.

Cigna HeathCare refused to pay for Natalie Sarkisyan’s liver transplant. She was trying to raise $75,000 for a down payment on the procedure when she passed away on December 20, 2007.

In addition to supporting death panels, health insurance companies will refuse to cover patients who have pre-existing conditions.

Mojo-
I feel that this is only the tip of the iceberg. If the insurance companies didn't lobby Congress so well (payola) most of them would be shut down on racketeering charges. They even buy off doctors, just like the pharmaceuticals do.
The saddest part is that there are so many that still buy into their lies. Until they too, get screwed.

Exactly right ladies!! The insurance copmanies are one of biggest reasons the healthcare system is broken. They are the biggest force behind the "revolt" against the reform. They're evil pure evil I tells ya!! Them and the pharmicutical companies. Their day is coming too!

This whole thing is making me nuts. I'd love to go to DC for the March for the Public Option on Sep 13th, but I may need to find a local protest instead.

(Missed you, Mojo.)

For the record, I have insurance; but it's a damned if you do- damned if you don't situation. I have seen how the scam works and how it ruins people for the company's profit. The system is broke- but then so are the folks that bought into it.

Here's another link about health care in the US, and why we need universal access. Horror stories provided by real patients, too:

I live in Louisiana. Some of you live in states that have cool nicknames like "the Garden State" or "the Evergreen State". MY state has two nicknames (count em, two!) The first one is "Hurricane Alley". The second one is "the Cancer State." I live here. What do you want to know about insurance companies?

PS -- Mojo, if THIS Mojopost isn't a deadringer for Mike's Golden Blog award, I am a monkey's uncle. (And I do NOT have monkey nephews and nieces. They are all lovely little human folk.)

You wait and see! Clear a place on your mantle for your THIRD Mike's Golden Keyboard! Count on it!

PIAPS said...

PPS -- Hi, it's Anony Tu. Thought I'd let you know that I am changing my name to PIAPS. I don't even know what the hell PIAPS means, but, somehow, I am certain that it describes me to a tee. So there ya go.

And now for a statement that you will NEVER read on C and L:

Gut Hemsley. Yes, he should be found in a ditch, gutted, covered in shit, with his dick in his mouth. Forget appealing to his humanity, he doesn't have any. He sold it for his lifestyle. Hence, the only thing he fears is not being allowed to enjoy his lifestyle. Now, before you get all panty wad indignant about this statement, understand that I'd be fine with a figurative gutting. It doesn't have to be a literal gutting. But a gutting it must be. As an example. Am I a psychopath? Probably. No, wait! I'm not! I'm just out of patience.

Your friend, PIAPS.

Speedy said...

Hah Anony Tu! PIAPS means pig in a pantsuit. It was used to describe Hillary CLinton during her campain. I'm fairly certain that does not describe you at all but be whoever you wanna be. I live in Nevada which is "The Redneck Hate Everyone
State"..... :)

Speedy said...

p.s. I say we start death panels for politicians who piss us off!!!

Not PIAPS said...

Oh no!!! I am NOT a PIAPS, then, Speedy! Thanks for lettin me know. I do NOT wear pantsuits. If I wore pantsuits people would think I'm gay, which there is no way in hell I am. What? Stop looking at me like that! I. AM.NOT.GAY! Curious sometimes, but NOT!

not PIAPS said...

Okay, SOMETIMES I wear pantsuits. But never in public, okay?

anony tu said...

New Mojopoll!!!!! I didn't even notice earlier! Finally, a Mojopoll that has a choice I can get behind. My choice is...

...Shot a man in Reno.

Just to watch him die. No, I did not shoot a man in Reno. But that song is one that the Dead did a great version of and I like it. So, it's my choice. Vote Shot a man in Reno!

RE-NO, RE-NO, RE-NO!

The insurance companies and pharma are buying off Congress and Obama. These that promised us have taken their campaign contributions and shot us the bird.

But I know a lot of doctors, and I know a lot of drug reps. They "buy" off the doctors in an interesting way.

First the drug reps are evaluated by seeing if the doctors on their call list (visit them, we have all seen them in the waiting rooms).

So there is a lot of pressure on the drug reps jobs to convince doctors. There were a lot of perks available, but laws have greatly reduced what a drug rep can spend on a doctor, greatly.

But more so they take advantage of the doctors busy life style. Regardless of popular opinion most doctors work their ass off. So they have little time for information and "rely" on the drug reps to keep them up to date on new drugs. Doctors also have a natural curiosity to find new cures. The reps use both of these traits of doctors to do their selling. It's called sales.

Just like the Democrats in 2006 and 2008 knew exactly what to tell people to get their vote, never actually planning on doing even half the shit.
