Insurance and ADHD

My family has applied for a new health insurance policy this past month and my 8 yr old son was denied any health coverage through United because he has ADHD. This is sooo frustrating. He only sees the doctor twice a year for weight checks. There is no ongoing therapy or anything that would cost the insurance any amount of money. We pay for his meds out of pocket since we have a high deductible plan. I really wish I had known this diagnosis was going to cause these kinds of problems. His ADHD is mild and I wish I had tried other methods of management before getting him diagnosed.
Has anyone else run into a problem like this?
