When a health insurer says it won't pay Philadelphia Inquirer 01/13/2008
This is a pretty nicely balanced article about the tragic case of Nataline Sarkisyan, the 17-year-old girl who died while waiting for an experimental liver transplant.
The ethics of this case are very tricky. We Americans are rightly emotional about children, and have a passion for against-the-odds rescues. There are some pretty intelligent suggestions in this article about new criteria that could be used by insurers and employers to evaluate this kind of situation.
