Just a reminder: the private health insurance companies continue to cancel policies:
"We do not rescind a policyholder's coverage because someone on the policy gets sick," said Peggy Hinz, a spokeswoman for Anthem Blue Cross, a subsidiary of WellPoint. "We have put in place a thorough process with multiple steps to ensure that we are as fair and as accurate as we can be in making these difficult decisions."
A thorough process with multiple steps in making these decisions. Sounds like a death panel.
