Some perspective here. Seattle Children’s is THE regional children’s hospital. I am a nurse in another part of the State of Washington. Children’s is where all our complex cases are referred. ANY child in our ER with a complex medical problem gets referred to Children’s.
Another perspective— Western Washington is firmly a Democratic, Obama loving stronghold.
Seattle Children’s Hospital is taking legal action to correct a “false promise” of Obamacare. With only two out of the seven plans offered under Washington State’s health-care exchange covering treatment at the hospital, one of the state’s key providers of specialized pediatric care, it will sue the state’s insurance commissioner for “failure to ensure adequate network coverage.”
“The exclusion of a major provider like Seattle Children’s for a major insurance network in this market is unprecedented,” said Dr. Sandy Melzer.
