    I found this LONG article to be interesting.

    "On its Web site yesterday, UnitedHealthcare, the nation's largest health insurer, listed John N. Trowbridge as a rheumatologist in its physician provider network. The Web site lists phone numbers for Trowbridge's offices in Maryland and Virginia.

    There's a problem with that listing, though: Trowbridge was found guilty in 2001 of four sex-related felonies. His medical license has been suspended in Maryland and Virginia.

    The second-largest U.S. health insurer, Aetna Inc., yesterday listed Peter R. Levine as a participant in its provider network. According to Aetna's Web site, Levine is affiliated with four northern Virginia hospitals and is available to treat new, as well as existing, patients.

    Levine died in 1999."

    Telephone directories update all of their information every year.

    It's just a matter of their databases being updated. I've had personal dealing with both of these companies and I can attest to the fact that keeping their provider lists updated is not a top priority for them. It's a common occurrance within that industry.

    It's Your Money. You earned it. What are you going to do to make sure you get to keep it?
