Arizonan Karen Brianin has hepatitis C, which has destroyed her liver. Her doctor has stated that without a transplant she will die.
She applied to the state Medicaid office for the procedure, and the request was taken under consideration.
She is now being told that her request has been rejected by the Republican-run administration because it is “not cost-effective”.
Let that phrase roll around in your mind for awhile and think about the world where Karen Brianin is your mother. Or your spouse.
(Two other Arizonans have already died due to Arizona’s Medicaid decisions.)
