PacifiCare Capitulates to Latest Patient Revolt
Date:3/25/2008

iversity of California San Diego Medical Center. "However, it is deplorable and appalling that PacifiCare needed to have hundreds of people pounding on their doors and besieging them with calls to take the humanitarian step they should have done long before today," said Jenkins.

Nick's father, Rick Colombo, expressed his profound thanks to CNA/NNOC and all who helped organize the protests for his son. "I am touched that Ricky has the love he has for his brother, that he wants to do what he can to get Nick the best treatment possible. Getting PacifiCare to reverse its decision, and doing whatever it takes to get Nick the care he deserves -- there are no words to express how that feels. I am thankful they've reversed the decision; we don't want to look back we just want to move forward."

"Every politician who thinks the answer to our healthcare crisis is more insurance should stop and think about Nick Colombo," said DeMoro. "Insurance is not care. Paying for insurance coverage is not the same as assuring you will receive appropriate care, even when recommended by a physician as it was for Nick. Insurance corporations profit by denying care to the sick, and that is no way to run a humane healthcare system."

DeMoro said that CNA/NNOC will continue to encourage patient protests and publicize stories about insurance companies' denial of care, as it has all year through its http://www.guaranteedhealthcare.org website, while pressing for real healthcare reform "that takes medical decisions out of the hands of insurers and places them where they belong, in the hands of healthcare professionals and their families."

CNA/NNOC is the nation's largest and fastest-growing union of direct-care RNs, with some 75,000 members in all 50 states.
