Vietnam vet, Ron Flanagan of Colorado, has been in the fight of his life - against cancer - the past two years. Last week he was getting prepped for a bone biopsy when his wife called. His insurance company had just dropped him.
It seems Ron's wife, Frances, goofed when paying a previous month's premium online. She hit the 7 key instead of the 9, leaving the payment two cents short. The insurer, Ceridian Cobra Services (never buy insurance from a company that names itself after a venomous snake), is sticking to its guns.
Only in America? Not if our conservatives get a chance to shoehorn private healthcare into Canada.
