Kathleen Bonner commented on You've been smacked with $1B in surprise medical bills, Jersey. Now lawmakers are acting. 2018-03-07 20:39:59 -0500Let’s call it like it is. Our state legislative representatives who support this bill are getting paid off by the insurance companies to get this bill passed. Unnecessary lives lost due to lack of specialty emergency lifesaving surgery is of no concern to those supporting this bill. This bill reeks of corruption by government leaders and insurance companies. Anyone who does not see that is blind.
Kathleen Bonner commented on Tell your legislators to oppose Out-of-Network Consumer Protection, Transparency, Cost Containment and Accountability Act (A2039/S485) 2018-03-03 14:34:36 -0500As a registered nurse for over 30 years and a health insurance consumer I am professionally and personally obligated to say this bill, if passed will guarantee lives lost in every emergency room in the state of New Jersey. Our legislative leaders have an obligation to the citizens of New Jersey to redirect their energies and start exposing the real problem. The corruption inside the walls of the insurance companies is unconscionable. All of the insurance companies use unethical, strategic tactics to significantly under reimburse every claim submitted. They steal money from consumers and providers every single day and get away with it. And they have been doing so for years. My statements are supported with detailed, consistent documentation. The only way this will be resolved and assure quality healthcare in New Jersey is to hold those responsible who are strategically and intentionally attempting to dismantle out of network. Wake up New Jersey. Make it your business to know the facts. Before it is too late and lives are lost, possibly yours and/or your loved ones.
As a patient, you know how important your relationship is with your doctor.
But the health insurance conglomerates that put profit over patients don't care about the relationship you've established with your physician.
If your doctor is not in their network, tough luck. They think doctors are interchangeable.
You know they aren't.

Governor Christie, please restore my access to the doctors I trust by reversing the unfair Small Employer Health Board ruling that effectively eliminated my Out-of-Network benefits.
