Programming note: Microsoft health plan to be featured on Frontline

Microsoft’s gold-plated health insurance plan will be featured during PBS’ news magazine “Frontline” tonight at 9 p.m. on KCTS channel 9. The episode, “Sick Around America,” focuses on the broken U.S. health care system and how rising unemployment is leaving more people without coverage. Microsoft appears to be included as an example of American health care at its best. From a release previewing the episode:

“For Microsoft employee Mark Murray and his wife, Melinda, their employee health plan paid for eight years of fertility treatments and covered all the costs of a very complicated pregnancy. “If it wasn’t for our health insurance,” Murray says, “we wouldn’t have a baby boy right now.” The Murrays’ medical bills totaled between $500,000 and $1 million, and their plan covered every penny.”

You can watch a trailer of the episode here.
