Patient Sentenced To Death?

Putting dollars in front of saving lives……………………..?

By Bill Rusteberg

An organ transplant patient in Texas is being denied care because transplant center wants more than 210% of Medicare allowable. They are demanding 50% of billed charges or otherwise the patient needs to find another provider willing to take 210% of Medicare or go home and die.

This hospital system accepts Medicare patients.

This denial is despite the fact the patient has secondary coverage through his spouse’s employer sponsored plan. The hospital’s stance? They will only agree to a single case agreement through the primary payer only.

So here is a real life example of a dying American who can prove financial ability to pay based on more than adequate double coverage but is being denied life-saving treatment by a hospital system putting dollars in front of saving lives.

This would make a sensational story but that would have to come from the patient himself. Maybe he will and maybe he won’t tell his story.

THIS IS A TRUE STORY WHOSE ENDING IS YET TO COME
