In late 2014, Edward began experiencing stomach pain while visiting family in California for the holidays.
On Christmas morning, Edward could not handle the pain any longer and visited the emergency room. A CAT scan revealed that he had an abscess in his intestine and he was rushed into surgery to remove three feet of his intestine.
In May 2015, Edward was feeling great about his health. However, he unexpectedly had a heart attack. A cardiologist put two stents in his arteries. After two operations, he is doing a lot better.
Thanks to his health insurance plan with Nevada Health Link, his out of pocket costs were affordable.
“I have, out-of-pocket, hardly paid any money. Without Nevada Health Link, I would be dead,” Denault said.
