Each day counts when recovering from an injury. Senator Gabrielle Giffords' resignation yesterday demonstrates the importance of time to heal. What if the Senator had been harassed and intimated by insurance companies for the past several months? Where would she be in the healing process? What if her resources had been limited, like in the case of many people? Or, those without any coverage? What a sad day this might have been. The Senator's story will be one of great success, and rightly so. I wonder if anyone has looked out for the individuals not so lucky?
Who has given insurance companies the right to choose who gets coverage and who doesn't? The number of individuals denied or delayed benefits, happens all to often. If they have taken the premiums, they should also pay out when the unexpected happens. In order for this to occur, ERISA laws, Worker's Compensation, and Employer/Insurance Company LTD Policies, must be written to protect the insureds.
