"Administrators at Seattle Children's today said they predicted this would happen, and it's even worse than they expected," says the local news anchor. "Patients being denied specialty treatment at the hospital by insurance providers on the Washington health benefits exchange. Children's filed request on behalf of 125 of their patients. Of those, they say they got only 20 responses, eight of which were denials. Dr. Sandy Melzer says all this comes after reassurances of certain unique specialty cases would still be covered."

I expect that neonatal intensive care units (NICU) will soon be forced to turn away high risk babies by Obamacare as these babies will not be deemed to be worth the “cost” by the death panels. This is the same argument used by the Nazi to justify killing the disabled.
Next time read the fine print.....

How many will survive when they find out they have two creeps like Van Jones and anther idiot like Maxine Waters on the panel that decides if you get “extra care”?

Let me get this straight, you can’t be denied health insurance because of previous conditions or illnesses. You pay for the insurance and then you are denied after they get your money. Sounds like a plan to me.

My mother passed away from inflammatory breast cancer in November at the age of 75. I miss her greatly and she left me in a horrible position financially, but there is one sense of relief to where if she would be denied care at some point, at least she’s in a better place now outside of the O-Hole’s clutches.
