Real Health Care Stories: Shannon P.

I was just diagnosed with a cyst on my pituitary gland; doctors say it’s a brain tumor. Insurance is paying little for my MRIs and specialist fees. I cover my son with my school insurance, which is $426 a month for both of us. I know I can get a better independent policy elsewhere, but I’m afraid I will be denied because of the brain tumor. I feel like I’m being robbed each month just because I want my son to have coverage.
