Cancer RN's insurance denies to cover her cancer surgery

  1. Came across this blog the other day and was pretty shocked at what's going on here. Thoughts?

    I'd like to help this family out and plan on donating since it looks like they are going to have to bear the cost of surgery themselves.
    Is it normal for a hospital lab to wait over 3 weeks to send a time-sentitive pathology and MRI results to another hospital for review?

    I'm only surprised that CIGNA wasn't involved.

    This is what insurance companies do. Why does that still surprise anyone? The only thing that surprises me is that the bulk of the US population is still willing to put up with people being treated like this.
