    it is. However, with all the discussion of costs of health care and so on, people seem to be forgetting that insurance companies, like other corporations, are in business to sell a service at a profit--which profit is then passed on to its investors as dividends. Since many pension plans depend heavily on stock in insurance companies to provide the pensions for their retired people, I wonder what destroying the insurance industry will do to them.

    It is also a fact that insurance companies rates are based on risk factors, something that is being ignored in the health care debate.

    For those who think it unfair somehow that people with higher health risk factors pay more for their insurance--how would you feel about averaging your car insurance rates so that a drunk driver with five tickets pays the same rate as a careful driver who's never had a ticket in his life?

    Perfect!

    Now the Insurance industry can genetically identify decades in advance who and when they will deny coverage for.

    Pay those premiums for 50 years, then they will drop you just before you need it most.

    Technology is a 2 edged sword.

    Very interesting. I wish to keep up on this developing research. Hope there are more articles on this as well as the BYU research team.
