PATIENTS WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY THE BILLS IF IT WAS AN EMERGENCY, OR IF THERE WAS NO WAY OF KNOWING IF THE PROVIDER WAS OUT OF NETWORK TAKE MOST OUT OF NETWORK. MUST PATIENTS DON’T KNOW THAT AND END UP PAYING IT ANYWAY. STRUCK SHE IS UP FOR HER SHE IS UP FOR HER FIRST GRAMMY AWARD. WE HAVE MORE ON TIA’S PATH TO SUCCESS. Reporter: JAZZ AFICIONADOS HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO TIA FULLER FOR YEARS. MANY MORE PEOPLE MAY KNOW HER FROM HER INVOLVEMENT IN BEYONCI’S BAND. NOW SHE IS OUT ON HER OWN. SHE COULD MAKE HISTORY AT THE GRAMMYS THIS WEEKEND. ALL OF IT STARTED RIGHT HERE IN COLORADO. TO ME THIS IS OUR LIFE. THIS IS A LIFESTYLE. Reporter: HE DID NOT DREAM ABOUT HAVING A FAMILY BAND. IT JUST KIND OF HAPPENED THAT WAY. I ALWAYS ENCOURAGE THE KIDS. IT DID NOT TAKE MUCH. Reporter: TIA FULLER IS FRED’S SECOND DAUGHTER TO GET NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY. IN FACT, WHEN TIA FIRST FOUND OUT SHE WAS NOMINATED FOR HER ALBUM DIAMOND CUT, SHE WAS SHOCKED. I JUST STARTED BURSTING INTO TEARS. I WAS ALMOST HYSTERICAL. Reporter: BUT SHE NEVER CALLED HER PARENTS TO TELL THEM. I SAID — TIA, YOU DIDN’T TELL ME YOU WERE NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY. Reporter: TIA COULD MAKE HISTORY. ONLY ONE OTHER WOMAN HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR BEST JAZZ, INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM. TO BE A LEADER IN THIS CATEGORY IS REALLY AN HONOR. I WOULD LIKE TO HOPE THAT IT IS CHANGING THE LANDSCAPE AS TO HOW JAZZ IS BEING PERCEIVED. Reporter: FRED NEW TIA HAD AN INCREDIBLE GIFT FROM THE MOMENT SHE FIRST PICKED UP THE SAXOPHONE. HER SON WAS EXTRAORDINARY. SHE DID NOT HER SOUND WAS EXTORTED. SHE DID NOT NEED A MICROPHONE BECAUSE HER SOUND WAS SO BROAD. Reporter: THEY ARE JUST EXCITED TO BE TAKING PART. I CAN SEE WHY SHE IS BEING CONSIDERED, BECAUSE SHE IS EXCEPTIONAL AT EVERYTHING SHE DOES.
