WellPoint Sued An Entire State To Increase Profits

Reported by Ellen - October 7, 2009 -

Our friends at Brave New Films, with whom we are proud to be associated, have a new video out illustrating one way that our profit-driven health care system drains money away from helping patients. Filmmaker Robert Greenwald writes: Netting $2.5 billion in profits last year wasn't enough for WellPoint, the nation's largest insurance company. Now, WellPoint's affiliate, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, is suing the state of Maine for refusing to guarantee it a profit margin in the midst of a painful recession.
