Vetro: Who are these companies?
This comes from the book No Man's Blood by Gene Church, 1986 (the biography of Ron Lapin, the "bloodless surgeon").
I do not have the name of the insurance company that is spoken about in this account of three JW men who met with Ron Lapin but from the following, it is evident that it is a JW owned insurance company:
204 Three men from the insurance company arrived for their appointment with Dr. Lapin. As Lapin’s secretary, Jodi, greeted the staunch visitors, she observed how much they looked like elders from some sort of church. Interestingly enough, she was right.
205 After introductory handshakes, the men settled down in comfortable chairs to discuss business. The company they represented served only families in which both spouses were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
206 A little extreme, Lapin thought, but then, it’s their business.
207 The men had heard about Lapin through Mr. Nathan, Maria, and other Witnesses who had called Lapin and received free consultations and advice. They were there to inspect him, determine his motives, and discern his reason for operating on Witnesses while respecting their religious convictions.
208 Lapin leaned back in his chair and calmly expressed his belief in the Witnesses' right to concordantly exercise their faith while having the best medical care available. He became louder and noticeably irritated as he spoke of the indifference exhibited by his peers toward the JWs. He was upset by the fact that many Witnesses waited too long to get help and that a number of others had come to completely distrust physicians in general.
209 They appreciated Lapin’s directness. He supported and defended the rights of the Witnesses and emphasized that all people are entitled to their chosen beliefs.
210 When the elders finished, Lapin had a question of his own. He wondered what the real purpose was behind their visit and questioning.
211 One of the men, Herk Hutchins, explained that their company received countless calls from Witness policyholders in desperate need of either medical treatment or advice. Whenever they sought medical assistance directly, they encountered frustration, futility, and dead ends. Most doctors refused to treat them.
I have ran across a few health insurance companies that are JW owned and operated (one in India) but, I apologize...that info is somewhere in my archives on a different computer. I will try to dig it up when I have more time.
