Truly some sad news! RIP

Cheng had been in and out of hospitals for various infections as his family has struggled with the mounting costs of care since he lost his health insurance a few months after the accident.
I would think that with 3 platinum albums and how popular the Deftones are, he would have had more than enough money to pay for his health expenses.

You're kidding right? No matter how rich you are, try paying for coma intensive treatment care 24/7 for 5 years straight.

Seriously this. Over a million if he's uninsured.

RIP Chi

I don't know about that. He'd been in a coma since 2008. I can't imagine what his medical bills must have added up to... health care is not exactly cheap.

Pretty sad, but I'm sure it's a burden off his family's back.
What the fuck does "he lost his health insurance a couple months after the accident" mean though? What a convenient coincidence.

Most musicians, if not all, are considered to be "self employed" and as such are on the hook for their own health insurance. In most cases, this is just too expensive, no matter how successful you are. And like has already been pointed out, the cost of 24/7 intensive care for 4 or 5 years is just into an area that nobody could pay no matter what their situation or insurance coverage.

Find a copy of "A Bitter Pill" article from Time Magazine recently to see what I am talking about.

In any case.... RIP Chi. I'm glad I got to see you play.

RIP Chi.

You guys really need to get free health care, this is pretty moronic.

Honestly if I were him and wouldn't have even of wanted to live. He was in a coma/ state of unconsciousness for like 4 years. There would be no point in life. As sad as his death is, it is probably a good thing for him

R.I.P Chi, this is incredibly sad. I'm going to be blasting Adrenaline, Around the Fur and White Pony in his honor for the next few days.
