Where are the Health Insurers in All This?

The only thing I have heard from the lowlife, greedy bastard, health insurance companies is they will cover some testing and maybe the vaccine when available. Has anyone heard anything else?

  • How about waiving a few monthly premiums?
  • How about donating money for PPE?

I want to be proven wrong. Show me they are doing something bigger here versus worrying about their stock shares.

Please.

    Where they always are, trying to steal more of their customers money by not paying their doctors. You thought a pandemic would make a difference?

    No one needs to worry about the insurance companies. Their premiums will soon be re-adjusted to make up for any loses.

    Why should they, they think they are God.

    And, of course, the parasitic PBMs continue to do everything in their power to prevent hard-working physicians from delivering needed medical care.
