Rights and Responsibilities of the Insurer
Although I am a lawyer, I am here today in my capacity as President of Blue Shield of Massachusetts. For the benefit of this discussion, the terms have changed from “law” and “ethics” to “rights and responsibilities.” Although I am honored to have been invited to participate with you in your deliberations on these issues, I must make clear that I am not expert in the field of genetics and genetic diseases. In my professional capacity, contact with that field of science and medicine has been extremely limited. And, that, I gather, is really why I am here with you today.
