Summary
Uncovered puts a human face on America' health care crisis by chronicling the harrowing struggles of the Nazaretyan family to care for their disabled children without insurance. George and Narine Nazaretyan' twin babies were born three months prematurely and remained in the neonatal intensive care unit for fifteen weeks. When the Nazaretyan's health insurance company received expensive medical claims, they rescinded the familyss insurance policy, leaving the family with medical bills of a million dollars, a house they can no longer afford, and severely disabled children who need specialized medical attention for the rest of their lives. The film reveals the medical, financial, and emotional struggles of one family as they try to cope with a medical crisis without health insurance. This new film by award-winning filmmaker Roger Weisberg makes a powerful case that health insurance coverage should be extended to all Americans
