Largest Nurses Union Criticizes Senate Health Care Bill

Posted By Dr. Michael Polsinelli, DC On December 22, 2009 @ 6:12 pm In Health,Medicine,Politics | No Comments

From the article [1]:

As the NNU has said in its statement on the bill, the loopholes include:

  • Provisions permitting insurers and companies to
    more than double charges to employees who fail “wellness” programs
    because they have diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol
    readings, or other medical conditions.
  • Permitting insurers to sell policies “across state lines”,
    exempting patient protections passed in other states. Insurers will
    thus set up in the least regulated states in a race to the bottom
    threatening public protections won by consumers in various states.
  • Allowing insurers to charge four times more based on age
    plus more for certain conditions, and continue to use marketing
    techniques to cherry-pick healthier, less costly enrollees.
  • Insurers may continue to rescind policies for
    “fraud or intentional misrepresentation” – the main pretext insurance
    companies now use to cancel coverage.
