    Well, It seems like pharmacists are taking over flu shot administration.

    Maybe blood draws are an emerging market segment for insurance agents.

    I see nothing wrong with asking someone to justify their position or to explain their reasoning about an issue. But it is stretching things to attribute motives to them when we have no real knowledge about them.

    And, it is really ridiculous the way myinsurancebiz is attacking Amber when she is holding to the position he held when this started. Yes, he has changed his mind now but in the beginning he was totally bull headed and beyond being reasonable. For him to attack Amber the way he has is not called for in MHO...

    I guess I would have to accept that as a fair statement. Thanks for your efforts to bring balance to things.

    You getting old . . . Better make sure your meds are up to date . . . Attack? Bahahaha!

    I had no position - just stated earlier that it isn't a "scam" and it's not a scam.

    It could violate anti-kickback laws however - which is my beef with the concept.

    Dude - if I didn't jump on this money machine - you know it must be a bad risk.

    He also was recently on a conference call regarding this and pretty soon a lot of people are going to be in BIG TROUBLE, is what the man told me!

    Oh, something I forgot to mention Monday evening. My contact said some Medicare beneficiaries are now starting to receive bills for these "free" screenings.

    So much for these scammers who were telling agents their companies have been doing this without issues for the past couple of years.

    Past couple of years? Really? Medicare only started approving the DNA Hereditary Medically Cancer Screenings March 2018.
