    The report says that "87 cents out of every premium dollar go directly towards paying for medical services..."

    is misleading in another way as well. From the quote you could infer that 13 cents of every dollar goes to overhead and profit. What it doesn't take into account is what portion of what they qualify as 'medical services' is actually the provider's overhead. That is, all the money the providers have to spend dealing with the insurance companies.
