Insurance company turns down infant because he's too big

A Colorado baby has been denied health insurance because he's too big. 3 month-old Alex Lange's height and weight put him in the 99th percentile for size according to CDC guidelines.

His mother, Kelli Lange, says that's why he was turned down for health coverage. Insurance standards say if a baby's above the 95 percentile, he's uninsurable.

Lange says Alex has no pre-existing conditions and she's frustrated by the decision.
