AMA Report Card Ranks Health Insurance Companies

The AMA has issued its 2009 Health Insurer Report Card, which measures the nation’s eight largest health insurers on claim denials, timeliness, accuracy and transparency. For more information than you could ever want on this subject, you can visit the AMA Web site. Fortunately, the Dallas Morning News has summarized the findings for us:

Doctors frustrated with medical claim denials issued a report card Tuesday of the nation’s largest insurers.

According to the report, the percentage of medical claims denied in 2008 ranged from Medicare’s 6.9 percent to UnitedHealthcare’s 2.7 percent. The percentages improved this year, ranging from Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield’s high of 4.3 percent to Aetna’s low claim denial rate of 1.8 percent.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
