Brenda T., Boise, ID
We were able to cover our daughter even though she was older and even though she had a ”pre-existing” condition. She had leukemia as a 7th-grader, then relapse in her junior year.
This delayed her start in college so normally she would have had to find her own coverage at 23, but because the age changed to 26, we were able to keep her on our policy as she finished college.
Also she would have had trouble finding a policy, as a cancer survivor, but now she cannot be discriminated against because of this.
