P 7294 AARP:保険会社は栄えるが・・

AARP, 2010.11.11

AARPは、アメリカの退職者協会。強大な政治力を誇る。

Three of the biggest names in the insurance game reported rock-solid profits last week. Aetna (NYSE:AET) said its third-quarter net income jumped 53 percent over the same period last year, to $497.6 million. WellPoint (NYSE:WLP) said its profit rose 1.2 percent to $739.1 million. Health Net (NYSE:HNT) posted a net income of $62.7 million, compared with a loss of $66 million a year earlier.

"The most effective cost management for insurers is to decline services," said Ron Pollock, president of the advocacy group Families USA. "And when there's a dispute, it's often very difficult to get a satisfactory result from an insurance company."

It's a good time to be a health insurer. For patients, clearly, not so much.
