Pacific Shores Hospital v. United Behavioral Health (9th Cir. - Aug. 20, 2014)

Want to know why many people hate insurance companies?  Stuff like this.

United Behavioral Health kicks a severely anorexic, 88-pound woman who's planning to starve herself to death or overdose on laxatives out of the hospital because she's "healthy enough to be discharged," despite the manifest untrue of that statement and the vociferous objection of the nurse in charge of the patient's care.

Intolerable.  Seriously intolerable.
