On that note, @wendellpotter says: "Despite this windfall, insurance companies will still increase their premiums next year saying that they anticipate the medical trend to pick up."
Highlight: “We need a system certainly in which everyone is covered," fmr Cigna VP @wendellpotter says. "We need to move much more rapidly ... to get everyone covered in an insurance plan of some nature. We also need to be able to do more … to reduce the cost of health care.”
@wendellpotter, thanks for being a Health insurance whistleblower: “I lied to Americans about Canadian medicine” WaPo. https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2020/08/06/health-insurance-canada-lie/

But Big @Phrma money/corruption extends to every corner of our system. @BrighamWomens
