Re: “A Nashville company fires a recently paralyzed teenage employee, cutting off her medical coverage — and raising doubts about health care reform

The driver of the minivan didn't have insurance. Our uninsured motorists coverage may pay out but even if they do, her medical insurance provider may lay claim to those funds. When the wheel came off she was in the second lane from the left shoulder, she later said she considered getting out of the car but was scared of getting run over. I didn't have her on the phone long enough to really assess the situation, but I do wish in hindsight that I would have told her to get out of the car immediately. We are currently paying her COBRA premiums which is a little more than $300/month. Not bad, but her 80/20 plan has an annual out of pocket max of $50,000 which is rather steep. I'm self-employed but we considered adding her to my wife's plan at work. Our reason for not doing that is that she works for a small medical practice with a group of only seven other people. After the first year of my daughter being added to that plan the resulting increase in premium would most likely result in coverage being priced out of reach for everyone in the office, including us. If everything Mr. Moss says is true then I can understand why they let her go, but the way it was handled made it feel rather unseemly and unsympathetic. After this experience I'm inclined to agree with Kosh, I think we need to consider looking at health care as a collective societal responsibility much the same way we do with education.
