WellPoint, Inc. Cancels Policies on Breast Cancer Patients

According to a front-page Yahoo article, WellPoint, Inc., the largest health plan company in the Blue Cross-Blue Shield Association and exclusive CA Blue Cross licensee and Blue Cross-Blue Shield licensee for CO, CT, GA, IN, KY, ME, MO, NV, NH, NY, OH, VA, and WI, routinely investigates policyholders who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and targets them for policy cancellation.  WellPoint Inc. also operates as Anthem and Unicare.  Read the disturbing details here:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20100422/us_nm/us_wellpoint_cancer

I am a breast cancer survivor, thankfully NOT dependent upon Blue Cross-Blue Shield, Anthem, or UniCare for treatment, and in my opinion, such reprehensible corporate behavior should result in long prison sentences for those responsible.  What do you think?
