DHHS Dumps Family from Health Insurance Program, Young Girl Battling Rare Disorder

A young girl, Grace Meints has PHACE, which is a rare disease. Her mother, Jennifer Meints, has received a letter from Nebraska's DHHS, which states that they will no longer assist with insurance premiums. "What the letter means, in effect, is that the Meints family now has to pay their own private health insurance premiums, which Jennifer says will run around $1,400 a month."
