Is This the Country That These Right WIngers Are Afraid of Losing?
August 13, 2009
Nataline Sarkisyan was a 17-year-old from Northridge, CA diagnosed with leukemia. She died Thursday, December 20, 2007 hours after a nationwide protest caused her insurance company (CIGNA) to reverse its previous denial of coverage for a liver transplant.
CIGNA originally declined to pay for the liver transplant because the plan did not cover “experimental, investigational and unproven services.”
Mark Geragos, attorney for Nataline’s family, has stated that Cigna “maliciously killed her” and that her family is planning to press murder and/or manslaughter charges against Cigna HealthCare for their daughter’s death.
