Myth
The Health Care Industry
Cares about you.
True Facts
  • Health Insurance Companies are, for the most part, FOR PROFIT. That means their goal is to maximize revenue and minimize costs. Your health care claims are a cost; therefore, it is in the financial interest of your health insurance company to minimize the care you receive
  • According to a report by the US department of Health and Human Services, the profits of the top 10 health insurers rose by over 250% between 2000 and 2009, while millions of Americans lost access to care.
