Oregon health plan covers assisted suicide but not life-extending care
Apparently, a cancer patient was told by her insurance company - Oregon Health Plan - that her policy would not cover the cancer treatment prescribed by her oncologist. It would, however, cover doctor-assisted suicide.

Yes, unfortunately, you read that right.

This all started a while ago when Barbara Wagner of Eugene, Ore., whose lung cancer has been in remission for two years, was prescribed a form of chemotherapy designed to slow the growth of her cancer. But to Wagner's shock, cancer treatments that can prolong life or that change the course of the disease aren't covered by the OHP. (Read more.)

This is what we have to look forward to if we end up with the government ruining running our health care system.
