Kaiser Permanente Pulled Plug On Woman's Insurance While She Was In A Coma

The Buzz: With her heart set on a career as a chef, Heather Galeotti enrolled in a San Francisco culinary school. One winter night, her life took a near-fatal turn when she was hit by a car. The 22-year-old lay in a coma for nearly six months. Galeotti's shaken family told the hospital that she was covered by her father's health care plan with Kaiser Permanente. The hospital confirmed her status with Kaiser and proceeded to treat her. Medical bills piled up to more than $4 million.


And folks wonder why health care reform is necessary.

If you're going to build a business gambling on people's health, your business model needs to include the risk that someone might require that you do what you agreed to in the first place.
