Dismantling Lies of the Health Insurance Industry
Published: 07-13-19

Wendell Potter is a former insurance industry executive who left the industry in 2008 to become a whistleblower, revealing industry's false health care narrative designed to inflate their bottom line at the expense of the insured, who pay ever-rising insurance costs while too often being denied needed coverage. As leader of the Business Initiative for Health Policy, Potter questions the formation by members of the medical industrial complex - insurance, PhRMA, hospitals, the AMA and others - of a front group named The Partnership for America's Healthcare Future, designed to oppose Medicare for All, and to maintain the profit-making structure of the current U.S. fragmented commercial health insurance model that perpetuates high administrative costs and high out-of-pocket costs for the insured.
