Woman Can’t Get Meds Because Thinks She’s A Man


Shelby Higdon, a female college student, told a South Carolina news station that she’s been unable to get her medication because her Obamacare insurance plan has marked her as a man.

“When it was time to get my medicine, they told me that they couldn’t give it to me because on my insurance I was registered as a man,” Higdon told WLOS.

Higdon said that she had to sign off on her insurance forms after they were prepared, double-checking that she’d gotten all her information correct. The mix-up came after the fact and she’s had trouble getting it fixed.

“I called probably about 8 times,” Kris Higdon, Shelby’s mother, told WLOS. But although federal Obamacare workers said each time that they’d manually fixed the problem, the information was never communicated to Higdon’s insurance company, where Higdon continued to face the problem.

Though it would seem to be a simple change, the insurance company couldn’t correct Higdon’s gender either.

“They couldn’t fix it because they didn’t have the form or the authority to fix it because they got the information from the health care website to do it,” Shelby said. is notorious for its problems communicating application information between the federal government and insurance companies, potentially a sticking point that made it so difficult for Higdon to straighten out the problem. (RELATED: Insurance Companies Struggle With ‘Duplicate Enrollments’ Left By Chaos) 

Blue Cross Blue Shield told WLOS that they’d found the problem with Higdon’s insurance plan and fixed it.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
