Health magazine looks at changes in the law based upon the death of Karin Smith, a victim of cervical cancer whose HMO lab contractor failed to detect her cancer in three Pap smears. Courts now hold HMOs responsible for homicide, not just malpractice, when patients die because of inadequate service provided by HMOs trying to cut costs. (July/Aug. 1996)
