Jay Rockefeller: Insurers ‘game’ new law

Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.) is scolding the nations’ health insurance companies for “gaming” the new health care law and is pushing the administration and states to impose stringent controls under the law on industry expenditures for non-medical purposes.

Saying the industry had turned its focus from opposing the law to influencing its implementation, Rockefeller said he was “extremely concerned that the health insurance industry is mounting an all-out effort to weaken” the law.
