Insurance companies are kind of right – death panels do exist. They ought to know because they invented the concept.
Tracy Pierce was denied life-saving treatments by his medical insurance provider. He died on January 18, 2006.
Cigna HeathCare refused to pay for Natalie Sarkisyan’s liver transplant. She was trying to raise $75,000 for a down payment on the procedure when she passed away on December 20, 2007.
In addition to supporting death panels, health insurance companies will refuse to cover patients who have pre-existing conditions.
