One of my Facebook friends–someone I actually know a little better than most of them–has just suffered a sudden hearing loss.

The doctor says she needs hearing aids.

Her insurance doesn’t cover hearing aids.

This is not right.

I remember when health insurance companies adopted the HMO model in the late 70s. They promised that, by moving to that method, they could

  1. keep costs down
  2. keep premiums reasonable, and still
  3. make a profit.

The only promise they have delivered is number 3.

They have had their chance and failed.

It really is all about their country club memberships.
