The Real Reason That The Cancer Patient Writing In Today’s Wall Street Journal Lost Her Insurance

But Sundby shouldn’t blame reform — United Healthcare dropped her coverage because they’ve struggled to compete in California’s individual health care market for years and didn’t want to pay for sicker patients like Sundby.

The company, which only had 8,000 individual policy holders in California out of the two million who participate in the market, announced (along with a second insurer, Aetna) that it would be pulling out of the individual market in May. The company could not compete with Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield of California and Kaiser Permanente, who control more than 80 percent of the individual market.“Over the years, it has become more difficult to administer these plans in a cost-effective way for our members,” UnitedHealth spokeswoman Cheryl Randolph explained.“We will continue to keep a major presence in California, focusing instead on large and small employers.”

The two insurers were also operating at a tax disadvantage in the state. As California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones explained,“One of the factors I believe contributed to this decision….is the special tax break that California law gives to Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which has allowed and continues to allow those two companies to avoid paying $100 million in state taxes a year.”“Aetna and United Healthcare don’t get the special tax break provided to Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and so they faced a major competitive disadvantage in California.”

And then there is the company’s own justification for leaving.“The company’s plans reflect its concern that the first wave of newly insured customers under the law may be the costliest,” UHC Chief Executive Officer Stephen Helmsley told investors last October.“UnitedHealth will watch and see how the exchanges evolve and expects the first enrollees will have ‘a pent-up appetite’ for medical care. We are approaching them with some degree of caution because of that.”

Get that? The company packed its bags and dumped its beneficiaries because it wants its competitors to swallow the first wave of sicker enrollees only to re-enter the market later and profit from the healthy people who still haven’t signed up for coverage.

Sundby is losing her coverage and her doctors because of a business decision her insurer made within the competitive dynamics of California’s health care market. She’ll now have to enroll in a new plan that offers tighter networks of providers as a way to control health care costs and offer lower premiums. Eleven insurers are participating in Covered California and for the first time they won’t be able to deny coverage to Sundby or any other cancer patients.

Hate the Sin but Love the Sinner
How many people in this world have you ever - hated? I know of some people I dislike - but hated? If we are to love, as God loves, are we not to hate as God hates? But you say, "God is all love, He never hated anyone" - or did He
Today, regardless of the issue, "hate" is the buzz word used by virtually everyone who disagrees with another person. When honest differences cannot be discussed intelligently, a picture is often portrayed of the sinner being a victim of the sin, instead of its evil author. In this case hate is more than likely the scapegoat. Although saint and sinner alike are equally guilty of this same deception, to disagree with another person is not by any means hateful.
Modern day use for the word "hate," which is closely aliened with tolerance, started as a deflection of truth by sodomites who promote the homosexual lifestyle and is purely an attempt to redirect the issue to a discussion that is more defensible on their part. Although the term "hate crime," was invented for this purpose, as with the word "choice," it is totally deceptive and destructive to the furtherance of honest debate and pro-life / profamily ministry efforts. The old proverb, "When the good are overly merciful to the bad, the good eventually become the bad," comes to mind. For some time churches have been doing whatever they could to convince believers we should always "turn the other cheek," to avoid controversy, like the great SINS of our day, abortion, sodomy, adultery, divorce, gambling, pornography, addictions, political liberalism, etc., to do anything else would be ... it would be ... hateful - wouldn’t it? Biblical references to God’s wrath and anger are too frequent to easily be counted. But in order to understand Scripture and God’s instructions we must begin by acknowledging a universal law of Christianity and three laws of hermeneutics (the science of interpretation).
The Universal Law of Christianity is that a statement by Jesus Christ (Son) cannot contradict a Law from God (Father). To state otherwise is heresy. Anyone who makes such a statement is acting completely contrary to God’s will, deliberately lying, or completely stupid - don’t believe them! The first law of hermeneutics is to examine what the text actually says. To do this, there are times when we must go beyond the English text in order to understand what was said in the original language, the Hebrew of the Old Testament or the Greek of the New Testament. This will require a Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. The second law is to examine the immediate context in which the passage is found. What is the subject discussed? The third law is to examine the whole analogy of Scripture, meaning, the entire context of the document being studied.
Take the word "hate." (Luke 14:26)- "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his mother and father, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also He cannot be my disciple." Common sense tells us this does not mean we are to literally hate our parents and everyone else, that’s crazy. So what does it mean?
First Law - Although "hate" in Old Testament Hebrew means "personally," in New Testament Greek it means to "love less." We are to love everyone less than we love God - same word but two different meanings.
Second Law - What is the subject? The term "hate the sin but love the sinner" is a paraphrase taken from a letter by St. Augustine, giving instruction for discipline to a religious order of nuns. It was never meant as a panacea to serve in place of punishment for a wrongdoer! In the commonly referred to pro-life verses of Psalm 139:1-18, David lists a stirring message of God’s perfect knowledge of man. But have you ever read the continuing verses 19-22,? "Oh God, if only you would destroy the wicked! Get out of my life, you murderers! They blaspheme you; your enemies take your name in vain. O Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate you?

not that it matters. the ACA is here to stay no matter how many failed votes the GOP congresscritters think they need to have so the nutjobs will think they got their monies worth.
Ok, moron. I'm just curious.
What makes you think any Marxist program at all can reduce any government deficit? That has never occurred in history. Why do you think ObamaKare will be the first Marxist program in history to reduce a government deficit?

Shouldn’t I despise those who resist you? Yes, I hate them with complete hatred, for your enemies are my enemies." In the Hebrew version of these verses David states he personally and extremely did not "love" God’s enemies. Again in Hebrew translation, Mal 1:3 states also that God did not love Esau, "Yes I have loved Jacob, but Esau I have hated." Additionally, 2 Chronicles 19:2 asks in a condemning tone, "Should you help the wicked and love the Lord? Therefore the wrath of the Lord is upon you." In Proverbs 6:17 God also states in Hebrew that He hates, not only shedding of innocent blood, but the person (human form) that was responsible for the evil! Psalm 5:6-7 states, "The boastful shall not stand in your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity. You shall destroy those who speak falsehood; The Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man," - including the abortionist. Proverbs 14: 17 states, "And a man of wicked intentions is hated." Proverbs 8:13, "And the perverse mouth I hate." We cannot address sin without affecting the sinner. An evil spirit needs a body to occupy. It will not be the sin that is sentenced to hell at the Judgment, it will be the unrepentant sinner.

Third Law - The Bible as a whole universally condemns looking at another person with an unloving heart, but there are instances where hating is justified as in the examples listed above. So the word "hate" can mean one thing in one paragraph and something entirely different in another.

In your life you will always love something and hate something. We can talk all we want about overcoming evil with good, but unless we have a holy hatred for evil, we will never overcome it with good. Most believers say they love the Lord but do not hate what He hates. God is holy; therefore, He cannot tolerate evil in any form - sin or sinner. An unrepentant sinner (regardless of a verbal conversion) cannot dwell in heaven with a holy God! If our love for the Lord is sincere, then we will learn to hate everything that competes against Him.
The question is whether you will not only love what God loves but hate what He hates. What you love is a clue to what you hate, and what you hate is a clue to what you love.

To touch the Lord is to have mercy on the multitudes and hatred toward their oppressors. Holy love and holy hatred are gifts from God and fueled by the other. The term, "hate the sin but love the sinner," is man made, not part of Scripture, and a tool from Satan to hamper the defense of the defenseless and the cause of Christ!

Suppose they could say that too. It's just that the majority in 2011 supported pro life according to a Gallup poll and that number shot up from 33% in 1995 to 50% in 2011. Pro-choice was down to 41% in 2011.

Maybe that has changed in the past two years.
