Only in America!

Once again greed and the horrible insurance racket is playing games with peoples lives. Just more proof of how peoples lives are truly controlled by big business.
Companies can now condemn our children to death in this country, how truly sad.

It's all slipping away from us before our eyes.

17-Year-Old Cancer Survivor Denied Transplant
Health Insurance Company Denies Liver Transplant That May Save The Girl
GLENDALE (CBS) ― 17-year-old cancer survivor Nataline Sarkisyan has been denied a liver transplant by CIGNA insurance company that doctors think could save her.

Sarkisyan, of Northridge, is in the intensive care unit at UCLA Medical Center in Westwood. According to her mother, Hilda Sarkisyan, she has been in a vegetative state for weeks and will die without the transplant.

Nataline was diagnosed with leukemia at age 14. The cancer went into remission after two years of treatment, but re-emerged this summer, Sarkisyan told the Daily News.

Doctors recommended a bone marrow transplant, and her only sibling, Bedig, 21, was a match. He donated marrow, but Nataline developed a complication from the bone-marrow transplant. Because her liver was failing, doctors recommended a transplant, according to an appeal letter sent to CIGNA earlier in December, the Daily News reported.

Doctors said in the letter that CIGNA was denying the liver transplant because Nataline's plan does not cover "experimental, investigational and unproven services."

The Sarkisyans have filed an appeal with the California Department of Insurance, but the agency sent a letter this week saying it needs more information.

Registered nurses, members of the Armenian-American community and Nataline's family and friends planned to march in protest in front of CIGNA's local offices Thursday.
