Let's take a look at what other CAPS members are saying about some of these stocks and whether they agree with this leading player's assessment.

Degree of risk
Although it sounds in part like a case of the pot calling the kettle black, physician groups saw their blood pressure rise because, they allege, WellPoint set artificially low reimbursement rates for out-of-network services. They charge in a class action lawsuit that the insurer colluded with UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) subsidiary Ingenix, which runs a database that determines "usual, customary, and reasonable" rates for care.

No doubt the doctors took the pulse of the settlement the New York Attorney General's Office reached with insurers last month over the Ingenix database. In that investigation, Aetna (NYSE:AET) said it would pony up $20 million, WellPoint agreed to pay $10 million to help reform the system, and UnitedHealth will put up $50 million to fund a new, independently run system. 

It was the AG's position that because an insurance company was running the database, it had a conflict of interest in the rate-setting process. The doctors allege that Ingenix neglected local factors in the rate-setting process and added services provided by health-care providers who are not medical doctors into the mix with physicians. For its part, Ingenix said there were often wide discrepancies in what doctors would charge for the same procedure.

In their lawsuit, the physician groups are asking that WellPoint cease using the database to set out-of-network rates and that they get triple damages and attorney fees.

Motley Fool CAPS member EZstockpickr certainly feels the insurers have squeezed doctors and patients, making the company a "vote with your feet" candidate for investors. CAPS All-Star NotJesseL gives WellPoint a financial checkup and diagnoses ill health:

Lost money last quarter ( a lot of money) and has a fairly small income of 50K per employee for over 1 million in revenue. This sector has been bid up and this stock pays no dividends.
