The insurance companies responsible for their treatment under taxpayer-funded policies have routinely denied the most serious medical claims. Those insurers -- primarily American International Group (AIG) -- recorded hundreds of millions of dollars in profits on this business.
I did not realize that the no bid contracts KBR received also came with taxpayer funded insurance policies on their workers. The primary insurance company is apparently AIG.
This was also on ABC's 20/20
This is totally disgusting in light of the bail out money AIG received.
Edit: here is a link to the 20/20 program.
