Underinsured Minnesotan Bitten by Rattlesnake Can't Pay Mountin...

Full story: KSAX Alexandria

"I was pretty scared, because I'd never even seen a rattlesnake except for at the zoo, so for it to be in the car and to bite me to top it off was pretty scary," Raasch said.

its pretty bad when an insurance company can make life or death decissions for a patient over what their doctors deem necessary. we need reg. on ins. companys that make them ;pay for necessary procedures and let the doc. decide not someguy in an office who is not a doc. make the chocies

I just think its wrong that NO ONE will help him. Thats NOT RIGHT. What are they going to wait for him to die then say well maybe we could have done something. What good it Docters then.

You've given him exactly what he wants - attention. It might be wise to ask for proof of his claims and do a background check on him.

Sometimes it takes this kind of attention for the insurance companies to wake up and do what's right. Why do these companies have to be shamed into doing what they are being paid by us, the payers of the insurance policies, to do? We purchase a policy and make our payments like we are supposed to and then have to fight to get what we pay for.

Oh, my goodness, if he were bitten by a rattlesnake, the skin would be falling off his leg and you'd have to put a warning on t.v. that you were going to show graphic material before airing it! There's no mistaking a rattlesnake bite for something else - he would need at least one surgery if not multiple surgeries to try to make it look normal again. Google pictures of rattlesnake bites and you'll see what I mean.

I'm surprised this story is still on this website. Ask for proof, because he's been all over Facebook claiming to have been bitten by a spider, to have tumors, to need a biopsy, oh then the tumors borders are undefined and a biopsy can't be done, and then oh it's stomach polyps, now pancreatitis. The spider turned out to be a snake. Ok. I wonder how many people will continue to fall for his lies. I wouldn't want to pay for his healthcare either. How many hospitals and emergency rooms and ambulance rides has he taken in the past couple of months? I wonder what his medical bills are. I'd really love to see the bills he's racked up lately. But he can afford a Blackberry and to text constantly and access the internet by it, and rent a car, and has no money for anything else. We all make choices. Apparently a few other things are more important. He is lying out of his teeth. Confirm stories before using them, because this is a "story" as in pure fiction.

Mr. Me thinks/Jason Raasch,
KSAX took the story off its website. I don't think anyone finds your stories credible anymore.
I want to see the follow up story on how you lied. That would be news.
Formal charges should be brought against you.

this kid is a drain on society!he and his girlfriend are drug seeking, one of the 2 is always in the hospital for some "life threatning" illness or injury. they go from hospital to hospital daily...and not just in mn the have started going to wi too. he was recently released from prison after serving 4 years for trying to kill his family by setting their home on fire. he has stolen the identity of multiple people aswell. worst of all he is on state healthcare so you and i are paying his bills! something needs to be done!
