    “The American College of Physicians (ACP), the largest U.S. medical specialty group, is rolling out guidelines to help doctors better identify when patients should screen for specific diseases and when they can be spared the cost, and potentially invasive procedures that follow.”

    ….Um why don’t they already do this?

      For the same reason we as an industry keep saying – after poor results – we are re-underwriting our books. *Identifying the good risks and weeding our the poor risks. Why didn’t we do this before our results deteriorated? It’s a lot easier said than done. Good luck to them and good luck to us.
