This is a very interesting article from the L.A. Times, “What’s Wrong With Health Insurance?” that hits the nail right on the head. We’ve been telling people for a long, long time that if you buy health insurance directly from the insurance carrier not only will you pay more, but you’ll get less. It’s one of the industry’s “dirty little secrets” that nobody wants to tell you.
Many people have no choice other than buying directly from the insurance carrier due to the fact they work for a company that does not offer group health or that they are unemployed or in-between jobs.

Folks, this just is not true!
Take a few moments to read this interesting article from The L.A. Times about an industry that can’t seem to work it’s way into the 21st Century. It’s a good read and abbreviated if you’re in a hurry.
