      I'm off to read the article, but I have to say that at a glance I have the same concerns that you and others have raised.

      One thing I can say for sure is that I would most definitely like to be on such a committee. I would practically pay to be on one! While not the biggest part of my job, I deal a fair amount with billing issues, and a lot with insurance companies. It's horrible right now. The people who set the policies and procedures don't know - perhaps don't care to know - what's happening at the point of care. Worse yet, and even more sinister, I suspect it's confusing and unwieldy by design.

        suspicious, there is no doubt in my mind that the insurance company that Unknown is dealing with is carrying out its actions in the hopes that she will continue to flounder until she goes away, thus saving them the costs of her treatment.  

        If they were in the business of insuring medical care,  they would immediately respond by providing a list of providers who are suitable for her condition.  Alas most health insurance companies appear to be in the business of solely sacrificing patient's health for profits and CEO pay.

        Life is not a problem to be solved but an adventure to be experienced.
