Do People love their health insurance company?

on August 19, 2009

There have been a lot of angry people shown on the news lately talking about healthcare reform, and a lot of them say they are against the planned reforms. Some of them say a lot worse than that — “Obamacare is evil” or other words to show that they don’t just disagree with the proposals, but hate the intent behind the proposals.

Am I the only one who remembers how mad so many people were just a short time ago about what the health insurance companies were doing to them, or their family member, or their neighbor or friend or that little kid on the news last night?

Whatever happened to all those angry people who were trying to find donations for operations or medicine that their insurance wouldn’t pay for?

I think they are still around.

I did internet searches for health insurance companies, and then I did searches for “… sucks” websites – those websites devoted to gathering stories about all the bad things that a particular company does. Most successful businesses have at least one because, let’s face it, no one is perfect and the internet lets people share their complaints with little fear of reprisal. So, health insurance companies should be allowed their share of “… sucks” websites without thinking anything is really wrong with them or their services, right?

Results 1 – 10 of about 466,000 for cigna sucks. (0.46 seconds)
Results 1 – 10 of about 248,000 for blue cross sucks. (0.35 seconds)
Results 1 – 10 of about 35,700 for aetna sucks. (0.38 seconds)
Results 1 – 10 of about 53,900 for humana sucks. (0.34 seconds)

Whoa!

Does that seem like just a little bit more a LOT MORE than “their share”?!!

Like maybe a lot of people think there’s a PROBLEM with their insurance?

I wasn’t sure how many companies I should do a search for, so I tried a general category search and got this:

Results 110 of about 867,000 for health insurance sucks

Jumping Jehoshaphat,  we have a lot of reading to do…
