    I agree. I once had a minor surgical procedure and the cost of the anesthesiologist came out my pocket because he wasn't approved by Cigna. How was I supposed to know.

    When an insurance company owns a baseball stadium, you know something is wrong.

    I don't believe in insurance as I feel it's a form of gambling.

    Insurance companies are basically behind all this tort reform bullshit too. It's a massive decades long campaign designed solely to lower their payouts. They claim we have a problem with frivolous lawsuits. Their solution: caps on the amount of money someone can recover. :facepalm: Total BS. Roped the docs into this by raising their rates and saying its because of litigation.
