Reuters reports the filing of a notable Obamacare-related lawsuit against Blue Shield of California:
Consumers who purchased new health plans from Blue Shield of California have sued the insurer, claiming they were misled into thinking the insurance would cover their desired doctors and hospitals.
Reuters doesn’t bother to point out the similarity of the allegations against Blue Shield to Barack Obama’s incessantly repeated falsehoods promoting the enactment of Obamacare. But we digress:
In their complaint filed in California state court on Wednesday, San Francisco residents John Harrington and Alex Talon accused Blue Shield of misrepresenting that their plans, sold on California’s health exchange, would cover the full provider network advertised on the company’s website.
They sued on behalf of a class of people who had purchased so-called “preferred provider organization” plans from the insurer only to realize that the doctor and hospital networks for their plans were limited.
Blue Shield stands charged with the offense to which Barack Obama has pleaded guilty in his own mealymouthed way. The difference between them is that if Blue Shield committed the offense to which Obama has pleaded guilty, Blue Shield will be required to make it right, while Obama gets to laugh all the way home.
