Round 20: Wellpoint vs Charter Cable

This is Round 20 in our Worst Company in America contest, Wellpoint vs Charter Cable.

Wellpoint: is a health insurance company that’s part of BlueCrossBlueShield. They don’t believe anesthesia is necessary for colonoscopies. That pretty much encapsulates all you need to know about them.

Charter Cable: gets all-around poor marks for quality of service, customer service, and technical support. They’re on the record as admitting to blatantly lying to their customers. One time they irrevocably deleted 14,000 customer’s email accounts, including all their emails, even the ones that you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to find the secret message. Whoops.
