Bad Healthcare May Cost A Life

Robin Beaton, although she may die of the breast cancer that ravages her body, says that she finds solace in inspiring legislation that may prevent it from happening to others. Although the cancer was discovered months ago, Beaton will only now undergo the surgery she needs to possibly save her life, due to her insurance being wrongfully canceled after her diagnosis was made. Beaton explains that a loophole, the fact that she did not disclose a prior medical condition, however minor, led to the cancellation of her policy. While she was able to appeal and have her insurance reinstated, the time it took to do so may cost her her life. Was this an unethical act made by a large insurance company, or was it justified according to the rules? What can be done to prevent another tragedy such as this from occuring?
