Liver Transplant Denied in Arizona for people on State Healthcare.
Arizona’s Medicaid agency cut funding for some services and refused to pay for surgery. Prepped and ready to receive the liver transplant that was donated by a close friend, doctors told the man that they couldn’t proceed with the operation, and the liver was then given to another patient who also was in need of the organ.
The healthcare death panel is alive and well in Arizona thanks to Gov. Jan Brewer and the republican legislators.
