Aetna, I'm glad I left ya!!!
This business prides itself on refusing payments to hospitals and physicians. Many lawsuits it has "lost" but won by delay, delay , delay... They have one of the worst track records for ontime payment of medical services rendered. I would not send your mother-in-law's pit bull to them. They are always behind the current medical diagnostics, lab and treatment. If you have this insurance, don't get sick. Yes I am in medicine.
I believe that a wellspring of dissatisfaction from patients, hospital and physicians will doom Aetna in the long term.

I now feel better

That was pointless. Does drug dealing qualify you as being "in medicine". I give up.

This is great, no hard numbers, a lot of opinion sounds like political pandering to put down a sound medical company that helps honest people with true medical problems the best it can. Then we seem to have some people who think the government is a big sugar daddy, or I might be wrong, ha. Billions of dollars in medical fraud with even some doctors going to jail have been reported by the newspapers in the last couple of years in a numer of states. Check that out.
