Ripping off customers for a decade, affecting 100 million people, today United Healthcare gets a $50 million dollar fine and a demand to clean up their act.

Oh, that's just wonderful, nothing about plain shutting down this offshore business and bringing back this entire chain into the United States. Oh no, just database monitoring.
It gets better, most of the major health insurers are using Ingenix, an offshore outsourcing service and now probes are coming in on just how many other customers have been denied reimbursement or significantly underpaid.
Here is another story of people waiting and foregoing much needed medical care while waiting for some third world approval for their insurance.
