Insurance Execs Senator Jay Rockefeller sent a let- ter to ClGNA requesting information regarding how the health insurance company "purged" small businesses whose employees made too many claims and cost CIGNA to much money. "Since I took over as Chairman of the Commerce Committee in early 2009, we have been investigating the health insurance industry. What we have uncovered about this industry so far is alarming and makes clear that nobody should assume they are get- ting a fair deal from their health insur- ance company," Rockefeller said. "These 'purging' practices are ex- tremely harmful and impact millions of American small businesses and families across the country. I want answers because I fundamentally be- lieve people deserve to know why their health insurance company isn't looking out for their best interests." As Chairman of the Senate Com- merce Committee, Rockefeller has launched a full investigation in to deceptive health industry practices and held a number of hearings. At a June 24, hearing on consumer choices and transparency in the health insur- ance industry, a former CIGNA ex- ecutive testified and described to com- mittee members "purging" and the extent to which it is used.
