Foster a yes on health care

Check out this article from the Chicago Sun-Times....paragraph 4 in particular.....some insurance company denied a woman coverage because menopause is a pre-existing condition!


  1. I submitted all my costs for my BHRT to Blue Shield of California and they were all denied. I spent $10,700 in 2009 for my treatment.
