Anthem Blue Cross agrees to take back clients, pay $1-million fine

In this case, an insurance company in California was fined one million dollars for dropping people after they sent in bills to the company for expensive medical care.  The company could even be asked to pay for the costs the people had to pay from their own pockets while they were dropped and uninsured.  Those costs could reach up to 14 million dollars according to the article.  This is a serious case of what is morally right and wrong.  The company Anthem Blue Cross, did not finacially cover their customers when they needed it the most.  It is an insurance companies job to cover their customers medical expenses and people rely on their insurance company to do this.  Anthem blue Cross would have been better off just paying the medical expenses sent in by their customers because now they are having to pay fines for their unethical behavior.
