Corporate Hall of Shame Award

Thanks to reader m.scott for alerting me to this weeks Corporate Hall of Shame winner. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas is the winner for it's egregious denial of care for a 10 day old baby who was born with a congenital heart defect. Coverage for surgery to treat transposition of the great arteries was denied for...are you ready for this....a "preexisting condition". Both of the Houston parents had previously purchased coverage for their two other children but were denied for the new baby.

Denial of care for children will not be allowed when the new Health Reform laws go into effect. Until it begins, it is business as usual for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.

I would think BS and BC could be sued for attempted murder by denial of covering the surgery of the poor baby at 10 days old. There is no humanity, compassion, let alone any ethics for their decision.

Tracy: this can happen anywhere i the US. From what I have seen BS especially is not bias or prejudice in what or where it denies, there are plenty of stories of denials in liberal California too.
