Why Health Insurers Don’t Pay and What You Can Do About It Part 5 A Real Life Example: Chapter 3 Lessons Learned By: B Allen Bradford, Esq This column is primarily for individual consumers, physicians, small businesses and small health care companies. Big hospitals and insurers play a vital role in the American health care system and I have nothing against them.  In fact, I spent 15 years inside the health insurance industry.  But the big players have plenty of very good lawyers to help them already.  My purpose here is to help others better understand how to navigate the health care system, which is sometimes bewildering, even to me. I’ll describe how to exercise your rights, some of the new rules imposed by the 2010 Affordable Care Act and other laws, and other topics that may be of practical value.
