I work in podiatry and my favorite thing is when blind people get denied for routine foot care because they don’t have a vascular condition that would make cutting their own nails unsafe. So sometimes I have legally blind patients come in with huge ulcers on the tips of their toes because they tried to cut their own nails and missed because they can’t see what they’re doing. A+ healthcare system.
An ampute person needs of a wheelchair because when the prosthetic legs hurt the stumps they need to rest for a while from the prosthetic legs, and meanwhile that happen they have to keep moving to their jobs and whereever else!

The fact it happened in USA shouldn't be presented as a surprise factor. American people are firstly customers and secondly citizens. See from health care, education, rights to privacy, housing market, capitalistic way of living etc.
Yall really shocked this happened in american?
Huh yall are disgustingly blind and confused.
I was diagnosed with an incurable chronic pain disease and taken off pain medication in the same visit. Less because of insurance and more because of the pressure on doctors to not prescribe opioids to anyone..
Medi care 4 all
its sad that it took this situation getting national attention for him to get approved, i believe if it had not gotten attention he would still be fighting. imagine all the other cases that are not getting any attention and those people are SOL
My thoughts is that, yes, we won this one fight but only because there was such an overwhelming amount of criticism on UHC and they thought it might hurt their short term bottom-line. We have to fight beyond one particular case and stop this pattern on gross and cold-hearted behavior of for-profit insurance companies.
These insurance companies are disgusting! They are at the root of the sorry state of healthcare in America. My ex had one bk amputation and one above knee and had the same issue.
UHC covers the brand name of my drugs but not the generic…?
I recently discovered that, although United Healthcare pre-approved some treatments, it has denied all the claims for chemotherapy and surgery related to my Stage III breast cancer diagnosis. I am learning this months later as the hospital, instead of letting me know about the denials, has been turning over bills to collections after all the appeals have been exhausted. Other claims are still in appeal, but the hospital states that if UHC continues to deny the claims, I could be $65,000 (and counting) in the hole for this. (The hospital also refuses to consolidate the bills and work out a reasonable payment pay but that's another story.) I am convinced that the company just denies all claims and hopes the patient either goes away (or dies), and then they don't have to pay a cent. It's shameful.
