The reason Blue Cross took this case all the way to court is simple, to send a message to anyone else denied “be prepared to spend millions fighting us, oh and you still have cancer so you’ll likely die soon”.

That’s good for them, but makes you wonder just how many people get refused but lack the resources to fight this or end up settling or forgoing care.
That’s sad
