Insurance giant Aetna slams CNN for publishing ‘gross misrepresentation’ of company policies

Friday 17:17 GMT

Insurance giant Aetna has accused CNN of taking a deposition “out of context to create media and courtroom leverage,” and calling a report from the network “a gross misrepresentation.” Earlier this week, CNN published an “exclusive” story headlined “California launches investigation following stunning admission by Aetna medical director.”

CNN reported that California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones “expressed outrage” when he was shown transcript of testimony that he felt proved former Aetna medical director Dr. Jay Ken Iinuma “never looked at patients' records when deciding whether to approve or deny care.” CNN’s 1,700-plus word digital “exclusive” by senior enterprise writer Wayne Drash was also turned into a television segment and  Jones appeared on the network to speak out against the insurer.
