I suppose you could read it that way but I saw it as a critique of the
Assuming the test costs about $3000 how many women could afford it?
And if it comes back s positive will insurance cover the cost of a
double mastectomy? If not, how much will that cost and who can afford
it? The same goes for the reconstructive surgery that follows. When I
didn't have medical insurance and had torn my left meniscus disc the
doctor offered a deal of $2000. The hospital wanted 10,000 for the OR
and that was around 1995.
I don't believe it's correct to compare the costs to a color TV; more
