Has the denial of Medicaid or other public assistance benefits led to the death or injury of anyone?

Asked by lbrodoff (2points) December 23rd, 2007

I’m writing an article that asserts that, if a state or federal agency denies public assistance, it can mean that person faces loss of health, homelessness, or disability. I have found some support for this, but I need more.

Yes. I don’t know where you live (no profile). But, this month a lady died of (breast) cancer after being denied benefits by Medicaid in Washington state. The benefits were approved just bdfore she died. I’ll look for a link later, running late now.
