Coping with advanced cancer, Bev Veals was in the hospital for chemotherapy this summer when she got a call that her health plan was shutting down. Then, the substitute insurance she was offered wanted her to pay up to $3,125, on top of premiums.

"It starts as a hand-packed snowball that someone starts pushing down the hill," Mrs. Veals said. "It gains momentum and speed; it gets bigger and bigger and swallows everything in its path."
"You don't advertise one thing and then give the customer another thing," said Mrs. Veals, 49, who lives near Wilmington, N.C. "I finally felt for the first time going through this cancer that I had something dependable, and somebody pulled the plug."
