Waiting In Vain

There’s a long wait to get proper medical treatment and then there is an Anna Rahm at Kaiser wait to get medical treatment.

After seeing multiple doctors at multiple appointments to request an MRI for alarmingly increasing back pain, Kaiser patient Anna Rahm had to wait over 3 months to receive the MRI she needed to be properly diagnosed with a quickly spreading cancer. At that point, the necessary treatment was the amputation of her right leg and the removal of half of her pelvis. A civil justice jury unanimously agreed that the insurance company had breached the standard of care.

And you thought your insurance cost an arm and a leg. (Too soon?)
