Question: this is actually a serious question. i'm writing an essay that discusses the corruption linked to the u.s. health care system, and i want to say something like "every ___ seconds, another american is denied health care insurance." i think this fact is known, but i could be wrong. if anyone knows any other facts about the problems with HMO's and insurance companies/pharm companies, etc, it would be a great help. Thanks.

Why don't you do an article on all the claims that get paid without a hitch? Sure some claims get denied, but it's not always the insurance companies' fault that they're denied. Or better yet how many seconds go by when someone makes a false claim against Medicare. When false claims are made against Medicare that's directly stealing out of tax payers' pockets. I have hundreds of educated clients and it's very, very rare that they have a claim that goes unpaid. I'm working on one now, but I have yet to figure out the whole story.

Check out the link in my sources. It lists the number of people per year who experience a denial or delay in health care. It's not exactly the stat you're looking for, but it's close. It also breaks it down by weeks, days, hours and minutes. I comes out to one person every 1.76 seconds. Edit: To Insurance Pickle: I sell health insurance also but I will still admit that the health care system in this country is corrupt and needs serious reform. The biggest concern is not with people who have sufficient money to purchase individual medical insurance, but with people who don't have the assets to do so or may not be able to qualify for individual medical insurance. Don't get so defensive, I'm sure you sell great products but not everyone in this country is insured by the companies you represent. Why would somebody write a report about insurance companies doing what they're supposed to do? That is their job and purpose on this Earth, they don't deserve a ton of praise for it. They're still in health insurance for the profit. It's like that old Chris Rock joke. A father acts proud and entitled when saying "I take care of my kids." The appropriate reaction...."So? What you want, a cookie? That's what you're SUPPOSED to do."

You might be able to Google for that specific stat. I just read this article a few days ago, and wondered “How long would it take to burn through 1 million dollars in the American healthcare system?” http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25644309/ Apparently, you can do it pretty quickly. My dad passed away recently. He was in the hospital for all but a few days of his last month. Two hospital stays, a short rehab stay, an ER visit, and one air transport = $212,000. He burned through nearly a quarter million in one month! That’s insane. No wonder we have so many people not seeking care. Makes me wonder how far my 5 million cap would really go if I had a serious condition. I actually cannot complain, though. Between my mom’s insurance company & Medicare, she’s going to have virtually no out-of-pocket cost. It’s just too bad everyone can’t be as fortunate.

The two are completely different. When we ask government for a drivers license we voluntarily become a regulated enterprise, promise to obey all the terms and provisions of the vehicle code (which apply to us), which is a strange quasi-contract mixture of police powers regulations for safety (to which everyone is subject) and stuff you volunteer into, such as buying car insurance. In a few years government mandates to buy health insurance will fall before the Supreme Court because government can not force you to sign a contract. Your right to contract is unlimited, you own it. Here's a bit of dicta from the US Supreme Court in a 5th amendment case, in which they explain that your legal status affects what government can make you do. Hale vs Henkel 201US74 Year 1905. "Conceding that the witness was an officer of the corporation under investigation, and that he was entitled to assert the rights of the corporation with respect to the production of its books and papers, we are of the opinion that there is a clear distinction in this particular between an individual and a corporation, and that the latter has no right to refuse to submit its books and papers for an examination at the suit of the State. The individual may stand upon his constitutional rights as a citizen. He is entitled to carry on his private business in his own way. His power to contract is unlimited. He owes no duty to the State or to his neighbors to divulge his business, or to open his doors to an investigation, so far as it may tend to criminate him. He owes no such duty to the State, since he receives nothing therefrom beyond the protection of his life and property. His rights are such as existed by the law of the land long antecedent to the organization of the State, and can only be taken from him by due process of law, and in accordance with the Constitution. Among his rights are a refusal to incriminate himself and the immunity of himself and his property from arrest or seizure except under a warrant of the law. He owes nothing to the public so long as he does not trespass upon their rights. Upon the other hand, the corporation is a creature of the State. It is presumed to be incorporated for the benefit of the public. It receives certain special privileges and franchises, and holds them subject to the laws of the State and the limitations of its charter. Its powers are limited by law. It can make no contract not authorized by its charter. Its rights to act as a corporation are only preserved to it so long as it obeys the laws of its creation. There is a reserved right in the legislature to investigate its contracts and find out whether it has exceeded its powers. It would be a strange anomaly to hold that a State, having chartered a corporation to make use of certain franchises, could not in the exercise of its sovereignty inquire how these franchises had been employed, and whether they had been abused, and demand the production of the corporate books and papers for that purpose." …………
