Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Gary Cohn takes an unwavering look at the impact the Supreme Court of the United States' (SCOTUS) decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has on cancer victims and their on-going battle against the disease in “The Dignity of Medical Coverage.”
Published today at the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance, Cohn's piece looks at the significant of the SCOTUS decision “through the prism of individual cases, where the effect on people's lives is extraordinary.”
Cohn introduces us to a spectrum of voices that exemplify how the ACA will change the American medical landscape.
- Linda Reinstein, President of the Asbestos Related Disease Association, believes that ACA will mean “lifesaving medical coverage for cancer victims
- A mother and breast cancer survivor who suffered from bankruptcy and foreclosure because of the lack of insurance coverage and the overwhelming cost of her cancer treatments
- A pediatric oncologist who has witnessed first hand children being denied necessary treatments because their parents' insurance companies deemed cancer as preexisting
Cohn sticks close to his investigative pedigree in “The Dignity of Medical Coverage,” while striking an emotional chord in one of the “can't miss” pieces in the ACA dialogue.
