More Octamom

Doctors are supposed to do no harm. In the case of Octamom it looks like they have done plenty of emotional harm to her and financial harm to the rest of us.

…the hospital where the octuplets are expected to spend seven to 12 weeks has requested reimbursement from Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program, for care of the premature babies, according to the Los Angeles Times. The cost has not been disclosed.

It is safe to say the medical costs will probably be in the millions. I hope the state of California goes after the fertility clinic that created Octamom for reimbursement.
