Arizona Republic examines health insurance policy rescissions The Arizona Republic on Fri examined how the practice of health insurers rescinding and canceling medical care policies of beneficiaries has been ‘scrutinized from California to Connecticut with some states passing tough measures or pursuing regulatory actions and assessing fines to restrict these retroactive health policy voids.’ According to the Republic, rescissions have been ‘generating many complaints to government regulators plus some lawsuits declaring insurers possess improperly dropped coverage.’ Policyholders and attorneys contend that the rescissions often take place after a policyholder can be diagnosed with a costly life-threatening illness, such as cancer.From the LA Moments: [1] Completely of the individuals getting on planes are screened for fever before they get on the plane, Frieden said Sept. 30.
