Stuff that Still Floats to the Top on the ME-P

Interesting Articles of Yore

By Darrell K. Pruitt: DDS

I’ve posted hundreds of articles on the Medical Executive-Post over the last year, and it always surprises me when something I long ago forgot rises to the top of their popularity scale.

The Run-Down

Earlier today, a comment I posted on March 30 titled “Usual and Customary UnitedHealthcare” was the most popular article out of thousands (?).

Why the sudden interest in UnitedHealth? Where is it coming from? 

At the same time, an article I posted on June 17 titled, “GM Bankruptcy Hits Delta Dental Hard,” had just showed up at 11th of the top dozen most popular articles. Why?  

https://healthcarefinancials.wordpress.com/2009/06/17/gm-bankruptcy-hits-delta-dental-hard/

Now, the UnitedHealthcare has dropped off the top dozen, and GM Bankruptcy has moved up to number 6.

Assessment 

Do you find that interesting? What do you think happened in the dental insurance market that has ME-P juggling my articles?
