Seattle Children’s announced  that it has treated approximately 125 patients who lost contracted access to Seattle Children’s when new plans on Washington’s Health Benefit Exchange became effective at the beginning of the year. Those patients, whose ailments range from craniofacial disorders to a neck mass, were all treated by Seattle Children’s regardless of their Exchange plan coverage, but continued access to the hospital remains in question. This is a dire situation for our patients,” said Dr. Sandy Melzer, senior vice president of Seattle Children’s, in a statement.
