Problem 6. Health Care Plan
Frank Oldburr is the oldest employee at Discrimina, Inc. He is now 62 and has some health problems. The company-wide health plan has been discontinued, partly due to Frank’s health problems.

- What legal options does Frank Oldburr have to get himself covered with a health plan?
- Is there any way to come to a win-win situation here? Explain.
