Can an employer change insurers due to an employee's cancer treatment in which the patient's hospital would only take the insurance provided by their employer?

Question Details: My daughter was being treated for stage IV cancer. Her bill's were quite expensive but the employer's insurance was being charged large amounts due to the treatments. The CEO of her company changed insurers in midstream of her treatments due to the enormous costs. Her employer changed insurance companies knowing that by changing, my daughter would no longer have treatments from her current physician. She went downhill physically soon after and passed away. Is this legal?
