(Hartford Courant )

Wendell Potter has an interesting perspective on healthcare insurance -- from inside and out. The former public relations executive at Cigna Corp. slams companies that he says put profits above patients.

Potter will be the guest of Hartford Courant business editor Dan Haar during a live Web chat Thursday (9 a.m. PST). The online discussion will focus on how companies reduce benefits, why Americans are underinsured and other healthcare topics.

Here's a Q&A with Potter from the Hartford Courant that discusses his book "Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate PR Is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans."

Now bring questions of your own and sign on to the chat.
