Medicaid Denies Coverage For Breast Cancer Patient Because He's A Man
26-year-old Raymond Johnson was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. He doesn't have insurance, as his job laying tile doesn't provide him with enough money to afford it. So he turned to a Medicaid program designed to help pay for breast cancer treatment. Unfortunately, Raymond's application was denied, because he's a man. Literally. The letter he received back said that the program was "for women only."
