When my daughter Kayla was just 9 years old, she was in a motorcycle accident. While her insurance plan covered her medical expenses, she contracted chronic osteomaelitis, a chronic bone infection. Kayla had over 25 surgeries on her leg before the disease finally went into remission.
Kayla is now 22 years old and a full time nursing student at South Dakota State University, but in five months, she would have had to enroll in a $3,000 a year insurance plan because she was a “high-risk” customer. By keeping her on my coverage the Health Care bill saved my daughter over $10,000 by the time she graduates.
