Medicare's High Claim Denial

Medicare has a higher claim denial rate than private sector employers:
Democrats tell us that we need government health care so that sick Americans can get the care they need without being denied. But under the government health care we already have Americans are denied far more often than the private sector.
What's the problem? Those denied coverage under medicare can simply bring a wrongful denial of claim tort.... Oh, right, they lack standing because Medicare has sovereign immunity. As a result, someone denied coverage by Medicare will never have their day in court (unlike those whose claim was denied by an insurance provider).
