Although we do link to outside articles (e.g. USA Today, WSJ, etc), and to fellow bloggers, we generally don't link directly to commercial websites. It's not that we fear competition (remember, we accept no paid advertising here), but generally find the articles to be self-serving and therefore suspect.
But there are exceptions, and this is an exceptional article:
"As part of its 'Health Shame' study, the British firm polled 5,000 existing policyholders, inviting them to review their original applications and change any information they knew to be incorrect. The result was that one in fourteen admitted to making some kind of error when initially completing forms."
That's a lot of misleading applications. We've blogged before on what can happen when one "fudges" an app, but Chris Brooks actually interviewed industry insiders, and shares some startling information with his readers. Chris emailed us today, inviting our readers to partake, as well.
Do read the whole thing.
And then double-check the last application you completed.
