Why? Because they didn't work & he had an allergic reaction

They are robbing a cancer patient because his meds didn't work."
No, not you!

Sorry for the misunderstanding. The kid's tweet posted in the subreddit sounds like an inaccurate paraphrase of whatever crap the insurance company is doing.

Like, I believe the kid that the insurance company is saying they're not responsible for paying the bill, but I doubt they're claiming it's because the meds didn't work, and because there was an allergic reaction.

It sound more like the insurance company is refusing to pay a doctor for some reason, claiming the doctor was incompetent, and the doctor is probably handing the bill to the patient. Something like that.
