Episode Description:

Barbara L. S. Donahue's acclaimed documentary. Over 51.2 million people, nearly 1 out of 5 U.S. residents have some level of disability. Over half of our work force, 56% of the population, ages 21 to 64, have some type of disability.

The Workers' Compensation insurance industry, as well as the disability insurance industry, is an industry rife with unlawful and unethical practices. The crisis is rooted in the industry's gross overselling of disability policies to younger professionals in the 1970's and 80's. As that population aged and its claims increased dramatically, the insurance companies began casting about for ways not always legal, to cut their financial losses.

This is not about arguing with an insurance company over your standard coverage or their prompting you as the insured to seek mediocre or second rate medical care, this documentary is about the insurance companies' deliberate "policy" of wrongfully black-balling policyholders, and using hardball tactics calculated to cheat them out of the rightful benefits that they are due.

And they really don't care who they do it to either, even their own! And who is protecting us from these vicious predators? No one..... They're all following the money trail!
