Paralyzed Toddler Denied a Wheelchair by Insurance0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:53 pm

A mother based out of Kingsbury, California was heartbroken when she came to learn that her insurance company would not provide her son a wheelchair because he was “too young” to be independent.

 
29-year-old Aubrey Allred told the media that her insurance company, Anthem Blue Cross, would not provide her paralyzed son with a wheelchair because of his age. She said that he was due for an upgrade to learn independence, and his Zipzac, a small wheelchair, would become stuck within cracks on the sidewalk. Aubrey said that Crue, her young son, is ready for a new set of wheels.
 
Crue was named after the band ‘Motley Crue’. His parents try to enforce as normal of a life as possible on the boy. They will not let anything get in their way to ensure he is happy. He has even attempted sled ice hockey, mountain climbing, and other sports. “He was a little afraid at first, but when he saw everyone else, he was bound and determined to climb,” she said. “It was just awesome to see him do it and to see all the people who were there cheering him on.”
 
Anthem unfortunately rejected their claim for a new wheelchair in October. “They’re telling me he’s 2, stick him in a stroller and he’ll be fine,” she said. She also mentioned that she resubmitted a claim, and it was to denied. Crue needs to be 5 before he can be provided with a new set of wheels.
 
A close friend from Facebook started a page to collect donations. He received over $8,000, and brought tears to his mothers eyes.
 
Do you think Anthem made a reasonable call to the claim? Discuss with us!
