  •  Why's the Quest president to be believed (0+ / 0-)

    When faced with a deal that cuts into their profits, they are going to claim that it will hurt patient care.  That's sort of the universal excuse. I can't believe that a deal with UnitedHealth would have specified anything specifically about specimen processing.  It's all about money.  Obviously LabCorp thinks they can make money doing the work at the price UnitedHealth is willing to pay and Quest is crying in it's beer.

    Remember, in the end, you pay for the lab test, either through premiums or a lower salary because your employer has to pay for healthcare.

    •  UnitedHealth is not about . . . (0+ / 0-)

      protecting or insuring your health.

      Unitedhealth is about Wall Street profits. Period.

      •  And Quest isn't? (0+ / 0-)

        I'm not defending United, I'm just saying that buying into Quest's propaganda is not particularly wise.  LabCorp is a perfectly fine national testing organization too.  Quest is playing hardball to protect their bottom line.
