Dear health insurance provider,  
Why are you complaining about the number of claims I'm submitting if you have not, in fact, paid any of those claims? Don't you think that saying "we aren't giving you any money, haven't given you any during the entire year, and in fact, we're taking more from you" is likely to lead to people switching to a different policy? Or are you banking on the fact that, as most consumers realize and most politicians don't (or do and then lie about it), that no, health coverage is NOT something that the free market works with because there's no way to make a reasonable price comparison when half the doctors/hospitals won't tell you their prices until after you receive service and there's no way to make a cost/benefit analysis when you're bleeding internally and need to be airlifted immediately.

Also, I sincerely hope that tomorrow on the way to work, you get into a severe accident and end up with lingering health problems that your own insurance will not cover. After years of stringing you along, it will drop you from the program and you will have to remortgage your house and sell your extra assets to pay for your care. In the end, I hope that your creditors repossess all that you own and that you die, slowly and painful, from the lingering effects of the disease while your loved ones are left with no money, no hope and no future.

Waking up this morning and reading this post blurry-eyed made me see this hilarious and strangely appropriate alternate title: "Death Insurance Provider".
