Wellpoint Won't Pay for Treatment Due to Medical Errors

Oh boy, I can't wait to start seeing the fallout from this Insurer policy.  WellPoint: 11 errors off-limits

This looks like a real can of worms.  Who is going to pay then?  The patient?  Considering the economic pressures already taking their toll on providers and hospitals I can't see these treatments, many of which have potential to be extremely expensive, being provided for free.  Some day we are going to have to accept the fact that perfection is an unreasonable expectation and that despite best efforts, bad things happen.
