    Am I supposed to take anything you're saying here seriously after this claim?

    She is a young mother and the ins company should not deny her rights.

    Well sadly no one said they had to pay claims or had to pre auth anything, the ACA only said an insurer has to give everyone insurance regardless of medical problems.

    They would not have approved her and put her on the list if they didn't think she had a fighting chance. This woman needs to file a complaint with her respective state office of insurance regulation and also file another appeal with UHC.

    Agreed. Except that ACA didn't force insurance companies to "give" us health insurance. It forced us to buy it.

    They can't refuse care for preexisting conditions or charge more and they lifted caps. They , refuse her a liver transplant due to her preexisting conditions. UH finally approved it, to put her on the waiting list.

    My guess then is she had a grandfathered plan but at any rate she needs to file a complaint with the oir since the docs thinks she has a chance with the transplant.
