POLICY/HOSPITALS: UNC relents from going after the house

Jerry Ansley has had a pretty tough time, catching encephalitis, going to the hospital alot, and losing his life savings because whatever level of health insurance he had wasn’t enough. The good news is that after lots of pressure Univ of North Carolina Medical Center has relented on its legal claim to go after his house—all he had left. Nice, eh.

This is the kind of horror story that we’re going to see lots and lots more of in the coming years—especially next year when Jonathan Cohn is going to become a big media star after his sifting through the appalling underbelly of the insurance market, or the lack of it, appears in print.
