When I read this, I couldn’t wondering, what does an overbite have to do with anything? Then, I realized, it was just an excuse to take the money and run:
Nine years ago at age 8, Nora Kenny was diagnosed with a deformity that contributed to the need for braces. When her parents’ insurance company found out about it two years ago, her coverage was rescinded.
That congenital deformity was an overbite. Now 17, Kenny again has coverage after her parents successfully fought back with the help of state insurance regulators — a battle that no longer will be necessary because a key provision of the health care reform law bans rescission of insurance.
