Mrs. Jones is covered by Medicare and AARP Medigap insurance.

Case Study 3

Jack Minnow, a 4-year-old boy, presents to Valley Allergy practice because of a recent allergic reaction to a bee sting. He has never had a reaction previously. Jack’s primary care physician Dr. Zane is referring him to Dr. Shelby, an allergist, for a consultation. Jack is accompanied by his mother who is the custodial parent.

During the visit, Dr. Shelby performs a series of allergy tests that identify not only an allergy to bees, but also to animal dander and grass.

Jack is covered by both his mother’s and his father’s employers’ health plans. His parents are divorced. His mother went back to work after the divorce 1 year ago and enrolled Jack under her health plan due to some concerns about whether Jack’s father would keep his job. However, his father is still employed with the same company and has worked there for the past 3 years.
