No. of Recommendations: 1
That may not be the only reference but seems to be one of yes, as Donna Smith notes in her piece, they will be allowed to cut off coverage so long as they claim it is "reasonable", where "reasonable"is not defined, then they can cut off your unprofitable, I mean, expensive, care for you or your family member battling a horrible disease like cancer..doctors already limit case to what they are willing to do as reasonable and with a reasonable chance of success, in their professional medical judgment...this clause makes a mockery of the promise of no (additional, bean-counter rather than medical) caps and limits to short, a for-profit death panel saying, "drop dead! you're too expensive" by an unelected corporate bureaucracy.

As Donna Smith also mentions, it's interesting how they got such a huge 'tweak' without a debate, discussion or voting..only reforms to protect the regular person on the street from the predatory corporate middlemen needs a vote or debate...
