Mine too ...... I'm still scrambling to find a company that will take him. He did have an AV Canal repair, but that has been done over 9 years ago .....

Are you talking about heath insurance threw the state or a health insurance threw you or the fathers work?

Re: My Downs Child Was Denied Health Insurance

We had problems getting health insurance for our son too. We should have been able to put him as a dependent (along with me and my daughter) on my husband's employer's policy, but they wouldn't even look at him. He even has a medical report to say that he has had no congenital problems and is being treated as any other well baby. In the end, I had to take out a policy with a different company and he is a dependent on me - it's cost us loads more. ( removed )

If your company offers group health insurance and is covered by U.S law (not sure since you're in Thailand), your child cannot be denied coverage.
