Summary WVUE’s groundbreaking investigation “Medical Waste” - which uncovered a secretive practice employed by major health insurance companies essentially forcing consumers to pay a premium back to the insurance company for their prescription drugs - led to changes in state law, was the evidentiary backbone of eleven lawsuits, and most importantly educated consumers on how to pay for life-changing medications. http://www.vimeo.com/leezurik/MedicalWasteIREAwardEntry
