    •  My letter states that they did not meet the 80/20 (8+ / 0-)

      standard. "In 2011 Blue Cross of CA spent only 77.5% of a total of $38,562,391.72 in premium dollars on health care and activities to improve health care quality. Since it missed the 80% target by 2.5% of the premium it receives Blue Cross of CA must rebate 2.5% of the total health insurance premiums paid the the employer......."

      This must be just killin' em.

      if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

      •  Amazing that they could not fudge a mere (4+ / 0-)

        2.5% of their bazillions in profit to make it look like they actually had hit the 80% threshold.

        But we'll take it.  (Well, unless it was SUPPPOSED to be 75% and they fudged it to 77.5%)

        •  I'm sure the mba bean counters worked a lot of (4+ / 0-)

          free overtime to get that number as low as possible.
