Health Insurance Companies Making Money!! That’s their business. Health care is a product line, patient care an annoyance and expense. Outcomes, are for someone else to worry about. Costs? why worry when we simply pass them through.
While businesses and individuals struggled to cope with ever-rising health insurance costs, health insurance companies lined their pockets with profits of $12.2 billion in 2009 – an increase of 56 percent from 2008.
Medicynical Note: The US is the only industrialized nation without a national health insurance program. We spend twice as much, have 50,000,000 uninsured and are number one not in health care but in health care bankruptcies.
We have a money making system for insurers, pharmaceutical companies and such and a non-system of health care.
