Dawn Josephson, Jacksonville

Dawn is a self-employed professional who has always had to secure her own health insurance. In the past, her health insurance plans always had important benefits excluded because of pre-existing conditions. She was expecting her new policy to include exclusions because her son had eye muscle surgery in the past year to correct a condition called strabismus. She was surprised and elated when she learned that her new policy included no benefit exclusions, even with her son's pre-existing condition.
