    PacifiCare denied 40 percent of all California claims in the first six months of 2009. Cigna rejected one-third of all claims for the first half of 2009.
    California Blue Cross rejected 28 percent of claims in the first half of 2009.

    How come only Republicans understand the importance of profits? You have to break a few eggs.

    Yes, the death panels are in private hands.

    Rdean, what Dude is doing is this: he almost has a thought, it overloads his brain, and he sighs rather than thinks. He is mentally farting is all.

    We've had 'Death Panels' for as long as we've had million dollar insurance executives and their expensive lap-dog lobbyists.

    Don't kid yourself.

    If you equate an insurance company who denies claims as a "death panel", what say you about Medicare denying more claims than private insurance?


    Medicare more likely to deny claims than commerical health insurers

    Medicare denies more claims than commercial insurers.
