Blue Cross still fucking consumers blue, or trying to

“Blue Cross had been canceling thousands of policyholder’s coverage, once they submitted claims, over minor and inadvertent errors. The tactic is widely known and deplored as “use-it-and-lose-it” health coverage. In order to settle a class-action lawsuit, they have agreed that they must show policyholder deception before final termination. However, the burden of proof is still on the consumer not the insurer.”

This could ALL be solved by extending Medicare coverage to ANYONE who asked for it. Fuck private health insurance, it just doesn’t work anymore (if it ever did)
