One More Reason
To Be Angry at Health
Insurance Companies?

HEATH B. MACKLEY
MD, FACRO

Don't you get upset
with health insurance
companies? To that
frequently asked question,
my short answer is, "No." 
LANCASTER

I have no love for health insurance companies, but the anger
physicians and patients feel about them should probably be more
evenly distributed between the insurance companies, the health
care providers, the lawyers, the government, and anyone that
receives the benefits. Like most of our modern "messes," it started
with a mixture of theory, good intentions, self-interest, and lack
of appreciation of the consequences of government policy decisions. From that point, it evolved in directions that reflected the
competing interests of the parties involved. But this is not going
to be a historical treatise about how we arrived at where we are.
Instead, it's a description of where we are, so we can best move
forward with our eyes open.
