I am 11 years old. My dad is an amputee of his left arm. He was driving home from work one night when a tow truck tried to get into his lane. My dad lost control of his car and crashed into the gardrail, which took off his arm about half - way. When he got to the hospital, he was still conscious but couldn't talk because his jaw was broken, along with every other bone in his face. They had to amputate his arm. My dad lived. He told me to write this and ask, " What are the six stated that have a law passedto lower insurance rates for prosthetics? " The insurance is not willing to pay for his prosthetic arm, and my family cannot afford it. We would like to get this arm for him so he can go back to work and back to his normal life.

My father was an amputee and he lost his right arm to cancer many years ago and his insurance paid for the prosthetic I think it depends on his insurance company and since he is basically disabled then there has to be disability insurance for your daddy. They are not going to lower insurance rates for individuals missing their arms because they feel that they will adapt and they do not give special priority to disabled people. Check with your local government write a letter to your governor and see about disability. Good Luck
