    Ariz. Man Denied Life-Saving Liver Transplant - Phoenix News Story - KPHO Phoenix


    PHOENIX -- A Valley man was in the surgery room, prepped and ready for his life-saving liver transplant when doctors told him the state's Medicaid plan wouldn't cover the procedure.
    Francisco Felix, who has Hepatitis C, has been on the waiting list for a new liver since April, his wife said. A liver became available and Felix was ready for surgery at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital.
    Arizona's medicaid agency, AHCCCS, which has recently cut funding for some services, refused to pay for Felix's surgery.

    That's terrible! He should go back to Mexico right away and get the life saving liver transplant he needs.

    If we all get denied transplants by government, we'll all be equal.

    Callous Conservatives, just what we want when your child, your wife or you need help. Vote Republican, and pray to God you and your's stay healthy; you have the constitutional right to keep every dime you earn.
    If you're stupid enough to lose you job, tought shit. Pay Cobra, you don't need to eat, feed your family or pay the rent. Insurance companies rely on your payments. How else can they survive?

    Don't be bitter Revere, not getting a brain transplant is not the end of the world. You might get a job with the Republican National Committee (hell, you might even become chair).

    Krugman says what happened to this guy needs to happen all the time.

    Does that make it okay in your mind?

    Until we go back where the consumer, us, are the customers you will see this continue.
    Insurance companies do the same thing.
    Under the current system the insurance companies and the government, not the consumer, determine the care.
    But folks love it!
