This time it took the state's supreme court to make a ruling..BD 

MADISON, Wis. - A health maintenance organization was wrong to refuse to pay for specialized chemotherapy treatment for a cancer-stricken child, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.
In a 3-2 decision, the court ordered Touchpoint Health Plan Inc. to retroactively reinstate coverage for the family of Parker Summers of Appleton.
Touchpoint administered the health benefits for Kimberly-Clark Corp., where Summers' father was employed.
Parker Summers was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor in 2002. After it was removed, doctors decided the best treatment would be high-dose chemotherapy.
