Sicko by Michael Moore
Please briefly describe two cases where people have been denied insurance although they should have been granted - according to Moore!
The first one is Tracey Pierce. Tracey was a 35 year old man who one day out of the blue got the bad news that he was suffering from kidney cancer. Tracey's wife Julie did however have insurance for Tracey trough her job, or at least so she thought. As the doctors prescribed medicine for Tracey, the insurance company kept coming up with new excuses to deny insurance payouts for his treatment. Finally, a treatment that could have helped Tracey to get rid of his cancer completely appeared. A bone marrow transplant from one of his brothers might have saved his life. Unfortunately, the insurance company denied to pay for this very expensive treatment because they thought it was "experimental".
The second is Laura Burnham. She was unlucky enough to be in a head-on collision with her car. She was knocked unconscious by the accident and was driven to the nearest hospital in an ambulance. The insurance company later denied to pay for her ambulance ride, because it wasn't pre-approved.
