That baby is not getting care BECAUSE of free health care, or don't you get it? Are you really that brainwashed?

Along with the rest of the major money making, >OATH TAKING< members of that hospitals
staff---> PERIOD !
They couldn't have possibly "WROTE IT OFF ?"
What if what came through for that child---> DIDN'T ? What if that child was yours ?
Maybe that childs family should have thrown a few spaghetti dinners or something at their local "AMERICAN LEGION" hall at X amount of money per. head, and paid for it all that way ?
IN OTHER WORDS----> There are plenty more doctors "WITH BOARDERS", than there are ones "WITHOUT".
Poor is "POOR", regardless of what country your in.

All illegal immigrants get 100% free healthcare. IF they would have denounced their citizenship their child would still be alive.
Hmmm...Social Security when I get old or kid still alive.......tough choice to make I guess.

the parents should be the ones to pay not the government. everybody wants a hand out but no one wants to pay taxes. we shoul;dnt even have welfare. if you cant support yourself die or live in the streets. ive been broke ass poor and homeless before and ive built myself back up. welfare is a burden on everyone except the people leaching off it.

Uhh....how do you figure that?
Did the government decide what this operation was supposed to cost? If not, who did? THAT person is the one that should be held personally liable for this.
More likely, the doctor decided his own payrate, figuring medicare would just pay him whatever. Its like winning the lottery every day if they pay, and you lose nothing if they dont, because hey, you are already a rich doctor.
And on top of that, he will get to keep his Bush tax cuts. Awesome, way to go America.
People like you deserve to get sick without insurance, then maybe you can feel a little bit of the pain that those parents and that child have to go through every day because of the greed of US health insurers and the tea party right
I would like to thank you so much for the contribution on behalf of my son. The state has overturned their decision, so my son is no longer in direct need of these funds.
However, as stated on the website, we have set up a foundation which will be used for other families and for a thymus fund for Dr Louise Markert to assist in making this procedure approved.
We have another family that we are working with right now who has a 15 year old son and is in need of Proton radiation therapy and the insurance has denied because it is experimental. It is a similar situation to ours. We are waiting for further investigation and for the final appeal decision before we make the contribution from the foundation. The family is in need of over $100,000.00 and we are looking to help. Again, thank you for your contribution to the Seth Benjamin Foundation.
Feel free to contact me back should you have any questions.
