OH! GOSH WE JUST FORGOT
A great article about the pentagon's latest oops. The military simply forgot to bill AIG and other insurance companies to cover the medical costs of private contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan. These contractors- who outnumber actual military serving in these two war zones, pay for their own insurance policies and are typically treated at military hospitals already stressed for supplies and crowded by active duty military. And the taxpayer is picking up the bill instead of the insurance company because the military just forgot to bill them! Also- AIG and others have "routinely denied claims to contractors resulting in long delays and depriving injured civilians of basic medical care."
