A United Steel Workers video concerning liver transplant patient Travis Turner:
When Travis Turner was 9 months old he was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer and almost died. His father, Craig, is a member of USW Local 7248 in Ohio, and the family had good, union-negotiated health care through work.
But just three months later, while fighting for his life in the intensive care unit, Travis was kicked off his father’s plan because the cost of the baby’s care had reached the $1 million cap set by the insurance company.
Now, at age 7, Travis is a happy, healthy first-grader. And thanks to the Affordable Health Act championed by President Obama, he’s back on his family’s insurance.
It raises a simple question for Governor Romney: Would he keep the provisions which do away with annual and lifetime dollar-limits on coverage for catastrophic illness and injury?
