A 29 year old Wisconsin woman, Megan Rothbauer, is facing bankruptcy from medical bills after being taken to the wrong hospital while suffering from a heart attack. While suffering from cardiac arrest, she was taken to the emergency room in a hospital that was out-of-network for her insurance. As a result she was stuck paying the entire bill herself, and her insurance could not help her. An unfortunate situation like this is a sad reality of privatized healthcare regulation in the United States.
