actually, its a dot that does 120k over 15 seconds, so you can live through it, with most dps having around 125k hp a couple heals would let you survive it, even ignoring self heals. however for most groups, it is more efficient to dispel it, but make sure to not put all the burden of dispels on one healer.

It may not do 100% of the damage on its own, but that dot wil still generally kill you. If you've taken damage from fire or a meteor slash or if you will take damage from either of those in the near future, your healers would have to heal you quite frantically to keep you alive. If your healers care enough about you to keep you at high enough health to survive the dot, they probably care enough about you to dispel the dot.

Assuming your at maximum health, then you may just survive the dot.How often are people at full health in raids these days?The simple truth is that it costs less mana to dispel the dot rather than to heal the person up. As such you should dispel asap.

Healing the people affected uses more mana and gcds than dispelling it. Mana is a precious, precious thing. It makes more sense to have everyone with the ability to dispel, dispel it. Show your healers some love. Don't make them heal through a dispellable effect.
