Health insurance denial of claims widely debated

We are wondering what Edward S. Kornreich and Herschel Goldfield think now after reading our post “Which health insurance carrier denies the most claims?” You see these gentlemen posted an op ed  “Medicare’s lesson for health insurance reform”  at  The in September. Here is a quote from the piece, “ Missing from the healthcare debate is any serious discussion about a critical flaw built into our system: Insurers have an incentive to deny claims, because the more they pay out, the less they profit. Patients and doctors have the opposite incentive…….There is an alternative. In fact, it is already in place for the millions covered by Medicare.”

Kornreich and Goldfield should be pleased. Denials are no longer missing from the debate. You’re welcome.
