Health care reform group is wrong again

The ad from Health Care for America Now says insurance CEOs make $24 million a year and that insurers deny 1 in 5 treatments prescribed by doctors.

Earlier this week we examined a new ad by Health Care for America Now, a group supporting the Democrats' reform plan.

The ad earned a Barely True for its claim that insurance companies pay CEOs $24 million per year.

Now, we're checking another claim from the same ad, that health insurance companies deny one in five treatments prescribed by doctors. The group cited a California study, but when we did some digging, we found that wasn't the case. We rated it False .
