UNCOVERED puts a human face on America’s health care crisis by chronicling the struggles of the Nazaretyan family to care for their disabled children without insurance. George and Narine Nazaretyan’s twin babies were born three months prematurely and remained in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 15 weeks. When the Nazaretyan’s health insurance company received expensive medical claims, they rescinded the policy, leaving the Nazaretyans with medical bills of a million dollars and severely disabled uninsured children that need specialized medical attention for the rest of their lives. By poignantly illustrating the medical, financial, and emotional impact of caring for uninsured children, UNCOVERED can make a powerful case for universal health insurance during the run-up to the 2008 election.
