    Aetna is not my insurer but I am sick to death of this BS from ALL of these private insurance companies who charge exorbitant amounts for monthly premiums but then deny even the most basic care. You are led to believe that a doctor reviewed your case and determined it to not be medically necessary but this scandal proves that doctors are not reviewing cases (as I suspected). I want to believe this will lead to positive changes but I doubt it b/c the entire system is corrupt to it's core.

    This is outrageous, but from my own experience with Cigna’s ( or UNUM) long term disability does not surprise me at all. California is one of the more progressive states and have fined Cigna heavily. Thanks for posting this.
