I live in Greensburg and this is on the front page of the paper today. I thought this was more about the claims processors and how basically these are the frontline people who pay or deny claims. My sister did this for 10 years for Chubb Insurance in NJ and the rule was ''when in doubt kick it out''. That if you weren't sure don't pay a claim. But my sister is a compassionate person, we were raised by example by my mother and father to be like this. Our mom died of PC 2 years ago. My sister paid all kinds of claims that were supposed to be denied, sent back for more evidence, etc.. If she denied one and the person called and talked to her (they had her full name and extension) she usually authorized the payment then. She got to know people on a more personal level and knew there economic struggles as they were drowning in medical bills. And she knew the insurance company was stinking wealthy and the people were coming there for help after being paying customers for years.

As for the situation in Pgh. with the clowns who run Highmark -- they should be frickin' ashamed of themselves. UPMC and Highmark are in a war and the people will lose. That's all there is to it. It makes me want to sell my house and pack my bags and move to someplace that's not so insular and has a wider breadth of sight and knowledge. The problem is I don't know where that is.

Oh, and I just mailed a check to Highmark yesterday for nearly 1,000 to cover insurance for 3 people for 1 month.
