ABOUT HEALTH INSURERS
Posted by politicalpartypooper on July 6, 2009
The following comes directly from Anthem’s website:
Our mission is to improve the health of the people we serve. At Anthem, we believe the best health care coverage can actually help people stay healthy. That’s why we go beyond simply providing health care coverage. We help encourage members’ wellness by:
Offering large networks of some of the region’s best physicians, specialists and hospitals.
Reminding members to have important preventive screenings.
Providing programs and information to help manage chronic health conditions.
Offering related services including dental coverage, life insurance and pharmacy benefits management.We work with physicians, hospitals and other providers to help ensure that care is accessible, coordinated, timely and provided in a manner and setting that promotes positive patient-provider relationships.
All good. Unless, of course, you’re poor, have a pre-existing condition, or find that your illness is related to a pre-existing condition, in which case, they’ll rescind your policy, return NONE of the premiums you’ve paid, and leave your ass out in the cold.
Yes, health insurers are ALL about keeping you healthy…unless you’re sick.
Then, you’re on your own.
