Profit mongering

Dear Editor:A few years back my mother was hospitalized for double pneumonia and hypertension. This visit required life support and within a few days the insurance company was pushing for pulling the plug on my mother. We need to reform to allow doctors to really make the decisions and not be driven by a profit-mongering insurance company. - Maria Jaramillo, Santa Fe Springs
