Offnote, I read an article about somebody in Washington that signed/supported the bill that patient can not sue the doctor for xyz. After 10 or so years, he wanted to sue the doctor for the same XYZ that happened with him. It turned out that he can not because the bill that he signed/supported.
I burst into laughter after that. so glad that S0B suffered what others suffer on day-to-day basis.
Payback! Insurance companies, although receiving payment from individuals, don't really act in the best interest of the individual. They act to protect the interests of the pool. The ACA did get a few wins against them with pre existing conditions, no maximums, and guaranteed minimum coverages. That's a plus for consumers. So, what seems idiotic to an individual probably has meaning when considering the system in its entirety. What can't be resolved between parties can go to the courts.
