|My house mate, who was supposed to go in for pancreatic [Cancer] surgery tomorrow. |
The wonderful insurance company DENIED the surgery TODAY (it's been scheduled for a month), saying that the surgeon who was supposed to perform it has "not been ...in the plan network long enough".
He is in pain, he's been mentally preparing for this for weeks, his parents took time off of work and traveled hundreds of miles to be in Portland with him, and now? NOTHING. This is total BULL$%&#!
Don't think Health Insurance reform is important enough to do it now? What if it was your life slipping away while the insurance companies delay the cure?
