How did you choose who you sent the questionairre to? You didn’t send one to Optum, or any of the other UHC undercovers, how did you miss these? There are lots of others out there, I know your list is respectable, but it seems like some important ones are missing.
Ann, good questions. The “questionnaires” are after someone has published something squirrelly. And it can’t just be plain-old squirrelly. It has to be off-the-charts squirrelly. At that point we read ’em and send out the questions along with an offer to pay $1000 for responsive answers. Since most of the questions are unanswerable (basically we’ve caught ’em lying), no one ever sends back answers and asks for their $1000. Some companies (as is allowed by the rules) then realize they made a big mistake, since we get a lot of hits, and change their mind. At that point, though, according the rules, we no longer pay them. They need to pay us to get off. I’m not saying whether Optum was or was not one of those, though.
Thanks. We need to talk more!
