SCIF seach warrants served in Sacramento (California)

Dear Editor,

Why did WCC not report on search warrants served on SCIF as indicated in the Sacramento Bee on 6-21-09 ? Do they have that much power, that you are afraid to report on the $600 million they gifted to vendors?

I also find it odd that rising comp costs are primarily due to cost containment measures(55% increase), which is insurance jargon for denying/delaying payments to doctors for reasonable care, while medication costs have only increased 5%. The WC cost increases are a direct result of insurers trying to take all profit away from doctors. CA will be left with the culls to care for patients. This is the truth, yet the insurance companies are allowed so much time in your articles to act as if they are the victims.

Thanks

Hi nurvdr7 -

We did report it on the 22nd of June: Investigators Search Office of Former State Fund Board Member.

We have been reporting on the inclusion of cost containment costs as an item of medical costs consistently.

Thank you for being a subscriber. We will continue to follow SCIF and the medical cost issues.
