Disability Counter Surveillance - Each Day Counts

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.  

Senator Giffords' fight for her dreams appear very viable upon recovery.  This is a joyful victory.  Let's make this true for others who sustain injuries or disease.  We should be able to have the same prompt benefits as those serving in Congress. And, fair consideration from insurance companies.  Stand up to change our laws.    Harassment and intimidation promote only insurance companies bottom lines.  You are important and deserve benefits in a timely manner.  Each day counts.
