HOUSTON – The husband and son allege an insurance company breached a contract when it denied scans requested by a late woman's physician.
Jonathan Taylor and Britton Taylor filed a complaint on Oct. 18 in the Harris County District Court against Aetna Health Insurance alleging bad faith and breach of contract.

The suit states her physician requested three positron emission tomography (PET) scans from the defendant for Sharon Taylor's care, which the defendant denied.
