Whole Foods will be a great addition to Chattanooga!!
If Danielle Clark is a communications staffer at Hamilton County Central Office, why does her husband keep making all of the comments?
It looks like every local comment made in the article, against the bill, comes from people tied into the medical profession. Could the harsh backlash from them be due to the fact they know their pricing is over-inflated and they are going to have to face the piper?????
Why can't BlueCross manage their finances better. Americhoice had roughly the same premium income but fared much better.
Just give us the truth candidates. If you are going to do fuzzy math now, what can we expect if you do get elected?
Would those jobs that would be lost happen to be in the insurance industry? One of the biggest lobbying groups in DC with the deepest wallets. No wonder everyone on the Republican aisle is so against reform.
Jayhay182....you are the poster child for what is wrong with the insurance industry. You say VSHP is losing money and doctors because of the cuts, but you know what? I used to work in BlueCare and I've seen both sides of the picture. BlueCare pays so little to the doctors to begin with, there is not even a question why the doctors are leaving. BlueCare is an "at risk" program meaning their money is on the line an at risk, unlike TennCare Select, which the state pays the claims and BlueCross only the administrator of the plan. BlueCare is completely opposite. Volunteer State Health Plan (subsidiary of BlueCross) has THEIR money on the line when it comes to paying out claims, so there is no question why they are cutting payments to doctors. There is no question that healthcare needs an overhaul, both on the doctor and facility side, AS WELL AS, on the insurance side. Clarify the facts before making it look like VSHP is the victim.
"Jayhawks shocked Tennessee pulls upset over top-ranked Kansas"
How about a little editing. "Jayhawks shocked Tennessee" - really?
I would love to hear Disney's take on using their licensed character. I doubt they would see this as simply political commentary.
