Now that health
care reform has begun its incremental changes to how health insurers can
operate, some companies are demanding waivers exempting them from
providing compensation to policy holders. Consumer Watchdog is calling
for the rejection of these requests and site the case of Dana
Christensen. She was left with $450,000 in medical bills when her
husband Doug died of bone cancer. Despite the purchase of a special
rider for chemotherapy, the limited benefits MEGA policy would only pay
for a small portion of the treatments.
