Major American corporations in the business of providing health insurance, such as Aetna, CIGNA, Humana and WellPoint, have abandoned insurance policyholders for profit.

Brave New Films is launching a campaign to reveal the truth about the health insurance industry and expose the obscene wealth of the CEOs of Aetna, CIGNA, Humana and WellPoint. The movie Sick for Profit tells the story of Isabella, a four year-old girl in Winsconsin who is physically incapable of eating and has had to be tube fed her entire life. Watch the trailer.

The treatment Isabella needs to live a normal life has been denied by her insurance provider UnitedHealthcare. Nevertheless, UnitedHealthcare ruled Isabella’s treatment too expensive; at the time of filming, UnitedHealthcare CEO Stephen Hemsley holds hundreds of millions of dollars in unexercised stock options.

Watch the trailer.
