A Breach of Trust: WWII Veteran Wrongfully Denied Coverage

November 11, 2013

WWII Veteran known for his integrity and love of family, he worked hard his entire life to give them the best upbringing and memories he possibly  could.  He taught his young ones to always be honest and to keep their word without hesitation.  To him, that was ultimately important and his example served well.

Little did he know, as he raised his children in honor and honesty, that  one day he would be the victim of a breach of trust by one, who should  have been his champion, during a devastating medical crisisHe trusted  and he was betrayed.  Never again shall his life be as once promised.

 Deceit won the battle that day, but the truth was not conquered. 

Truth fights on and strives to win the war against those who deny care for  profit and because they can.

Truth and knowledge will bring the deceit and trickery into the light  and hopefully prevent others from being denied proper care at critical  moments.  People deserve better than that.  People should be able to  trust the caregivers and providers.  People deserve the chance to  recover and live on in dignity and with purpose to whatever degree is theirs to behold.  People should and it is time eyes are opened and the truth be seen by a population unaware.  It’s time people rather than  profits trump and honesty prevail.

A Breach of Trust is never acceptable and it shan’t be silently tolerated! 

Be intolerant — add your voice in objection to deceit and trickery that wrongfully denies coverage!

Humana Inc., one of the nation’s largest managed-care companies, was accused in a Federal lawsuit yesterday of misleading health plan members by failing to disclose financial incentives to doctors and case reviewers intended to keep down costs by limiting or denying care.

The suit, filed on behalf of workers in Florida and Texas, asked a United States District Court in Miami to certify a class action on behalf of more than six million customers of Humana health plans nationwide. The suit seeks triple damages under the Federal anti-racketeering law. No amounts were specified.

The plaintiffs say they did not get the health coverage that they thought they were selecting because the company did not disclose incentives to doctors to deny care.

Joseph Sellers, a Washington lawyer who represents the plaintiffs in Miami, said the suit did not question whether managed care was a good idea or whether cost should be a factor. Instead, the suit contends that there was a ”breach of trust” because plan members thought that medical guidelines would solely determine their treatment.
