A New York woman suffering from a neurological disease that has required four brain surgeries has been dropped by all of her doctors and denied medications due to her Obamacare plan.
"I've been vomiting. I lost 22 pounds. The pain is unbearable," said Margaret Figueroa, 49, on Wednesday. "My medication helps me function during the day."
Figueroa suffers from a disease known as Arnold Chiari Malformation and Syringomyelia. Even though the Obamacare plan she purchased assured her that she was covered, her insurance card was denied when she went to fill her prescriptions. Then she learned that none of her doctors accept her Obamacare plan. Figueroa says she cannot find a doctor who accepts her Obamacare plan; indeed, there are only six doctors in all of Staten Island who take her plan, none of whom she's been able to get appointments with.

She should just go sit outside of Rustler Reid’s Senate office with a video camera so he can tell her that she is lying.
From the comments section:
“If you like your Death Panel, you can keep your Death Panel.”
She could be any one of us, eventually.
Where is your pre-existing condition coverage now? To all Obamascare supporters — hopefully your doctors and hospitals drop you off so that you can find out how good your socialized medicine is. Socialized medicine for all, but medical treatment for none.
yes I can just see Harry having a cow about this when he finds out..
or will he just say its so much bull ???
That *is* the plan. Why else would it be named Obamacare? It's all a lie... the very essence of the name and character of all things "Obama".
I bet her Obamacare plan doesn’t even cover medical marijuana prescriptions.
Heh, guess during all the cheering, no one ever thought “Gee, where does healthcare come from?”
Her plan no doubt covers birth control and AIDS treatments.
Ask Ezekiel Emmanuel, SEIU, and Kathleen if they give a $hit.
Actually...don’t waste the time. The collective benefit to the rat party overrules all “little people” issues.
“Yes We Can (kill off a bunch of Americans)”
Well, she does have "coverage", so this will be counted as a success.
Turns out pre-existing condition “coverage” doesn’t mean the same coverage you used to have or should have. Could be you can see the doctor but the treatment isn’t covered. Could be you get some treatment but not the best or latest treatment. This is murder and Obama the lying traitor is the murderer.
Boy, 7, born with rare cancer loses his insurance because of Obamacare...leaving his parents needing $50,000 to pay for life-saving chemotherapy
A Gainesville, Texas family is fighting for their cancer-stricken child's life after he was removed from his insurance plan
Ron and Krista Alfords seven-year-old boy Hunter is in need of another round of chemotherapy costing $50,000
Obamacare was passed in 2010 when the Dems controlled the House, the Senate and the king chair. I know we all here know that. Just hope the ones not here do too.
The EXEMPT will continue to get Kennedy-style helicopter
rides to any doctor THEY want.
This just happened to a friend of mine. She suffers from a rare disease called polymyositis. It is essentially the death of muscles and nerves. It affects every muscle in her body..she can’t swallow now. She describes the pain as being like a painful leg cramp that lasts for hours over a larger area. She will die of it.
surprise surprise surprise....
Anyone that thinks is the exception and not the rule must be a dimorat.
Ocare and its health plan consists of this JUST GO AHEAD AND DIE!!!!
The goal of collectivized deathcare is to limit costs so denying medical care is a default position.
The Democrat war on women continues.
Implied death panels, surely you jest.
I think you’re supposed to take a pill before you JUST GO AHEAD AND DIE ... and the pill cost may or may not be covered by CommieCare!
You would think that these journalists would give the back story on these cases. Did they have coverage before that was cancelled because of Obamacare? We’re they forced onto Obamacare or did they ‘choose’ it because of the subsidies. I would really like to know if some of these cases were/are all for Obamacare and if they are getting it essentially free.
I don’t want anyone to die but I really would like to know if their situation is of their own making.
Collectivists love shortages...even medical care...for the masses.
welcome to socialized medicine
if your value to the fedgov is less then the cost of medical care, you’ll find your care.... degraded
They will collect the cost from your relatives
