The Doctor Will Kill You Now

Last June in Eugene, Oregon, 64-year-old Barbara Wagner received a letter from the state-run Oregon Health Plan. Wagner, who was suffering from a recurrence of lung cancer at the time, was informed that her health policy would not cover the high cost (about $4,000 a month) of her life-extending cancer drug.

“Treatment of advanced cancer that is meant to prolong life, or change the course of this disease, is not a covered benefit of the Oregon Health Plan,” stated the letter Wagner received.

But the letter informed Wagner that the plan would cover the cost — only $50 — of a much different treatment: doctor-assisted suicide.
