SPOTLIGHT: Five largest insurers want more political influence

Five of the nation's largest health insurance companies are taking a key step toward influencing implementation of the new health law, reports Kaiser Health News. The companies--Aetna, Cigna, Humana, UnitedHealthcare and Wellpoint--are shopping around Washington, D.C. for a public relations firm to represent them. They spent a ton of money in 2009 on lobbying and the election and liked being influential, and they don' t want that to go away, according to KHN. What exactly the group hopes to achieve isn't entirely clear, however. Article
