(WFLX) - A 4-month-old baby is denied health coverage because he's too fat.
Alex Lange weighs 17 pounds and is 25 inches long. He's in the 99th percentile which means he weighs more than 99 percent of babies his age.
His parents were shocked by his rejection saying Alex is just a healthy baby. "They said I would be covered, and my son, Vincent who is 2, would be covered. But Alex, because he's too fat, we're not going to cover him unless he can drop under the 95th percentile," stated his father.
