Life Site News Jun 7, 2017
June 7, 2017 (SPUC) — A Nevada doctor has said that insurance companies in states where assisted suicide is legal have refused to cover expensive lifesaving treatments for patients — but have offered to pay to end their lives.
Dr. Brian Callister, associate professor of internal medicine at the University of Nevada, told the Washington Times that two separate insurance companies refused his request to transfer patients to California and Oregon for procedures not performed at his hospital. Life in insurers hands
"And in both cases, the insurance medical director said to me, ‘Brian, we’re not going to cover that procedure or the transfer, but would you consider assisted suicide?’" Dr. Callister said. Neither patient was terminal, and he had said nothing to prompt the suggestion. In fact, in both cases, the treatment had a good chance of saving their lives: "It was estimated that their chance for cure — cure, not just adding time — of about 50 percent in one case and 70 percent in the other case." more www.lifesitenews.com/news/insurer-wont-cover-treatment-then-asks-doctor-would-you-consider-assisted-s
