'Arbitrary' health care policies?

Here's a quote from a recent CNN story:
An overhaul of health care policy will protect people with insurance from the "arbitrary" policies of the insurance industry while lowering their health care expenses, President Obama on Saturday told an audience in Grand Junction, Colorado.
How much do we really understand about insurance companies? We know that they frequently deny claims and make it very difficult to prescribe certain medications. It's a sad reality, but healthcare is a business. It's a business to physicians and it's a business to the payers. It's also a business to the government and Obama now wants to get seriously involved. He's quoted as saying: "We're going to ban arbitrary caps on benefits. And we'll place limits on how much you can be charged for out-of-pocket expenses."
