I and my husband have been denied insurance because of our high blood pressure.
My daughter was denied insurance for many years because she was born with a medical condition. In the last five months of her life, she was shifted from one hospital facility to another because her insurance would pay for only 28 to 30 days at a time in one facility. She was denied medicine she needed (she had to have many blood transfusions and as a result she had iron overload) because the medicine was too expensive to use on her in her condition.
My daughter suffered unnecessarily for many years because she did not have the insurance she needed.
My daughter passed away in 2007, this will not help her now but I will fight to the death so no one else will have to suffer as she did.
