Limit, One Per Person

A state insurance program that initially denied coverage for an Iowa County woman's lung transplant says it reversed itself after reviewing her policy history, not because of media coverage.

OK, so why did they deny coverage?

When 44-year-old Joan McCarville was told she'd need a third transplant, the Health Insurance Risk Sharing Plan said a 2000 stipulation prevented it from covering a person for more than one transplant of an organ.

Interesting . . .

Guess that is what one can expect with a government run program.
