Health insurance providers?

I was listening with interest to an NPR interview with Rep. Paul Ryan, who has become a media darling for his role as de facto spokesman for the Congressional Republicans on budget issues. In passing, he made a gross misrepresentation of reality.

A brief memo to Ryan: health insurance companies are NOT "providers" of health care services. They are money changers. They do not cure an ailment. They do not heal a wound. They are not providers of health care.
