This is not new, and it is not news. Maybe it's because my mother was involved in the health care industry when I was growing up - she was a CNA, and I practically grew up in a nursing home - but adults around me have been talking about the problems with health insurance companies since I was a child. It is no great revelation for me that it is accountants and CFOs who write insurance policy on which procedures are essential and which are elective. Anyone who has been under the delusion that medical professionals such as doctors, nurses, therapists and the like have had any control over the quality of care that they can give patients is sorely mistaken. If you stop and think about it, who did you think was running the show? Non-profits? Modern-day philanthropists? Please.
It's unfortunate that they use Michael Moore to make their point, though. He is to 'documentary' work what Howard Stern was to radio.
This is not new, but I'm glad it's more out in the open.
