I feel like "What is with my health insurance?" should be an acceptable answer. I suppose that carries a different tone in English though.

Americans are used to saying that...

Yes, "is" is not needed and the mistake got fixed, thanks Lenkvist =)

why 'what is about my health insurance' not right?

You don't use "is" in the phrase "what about".

I think the given translation is also incorrect as it should be "my health insurance".

"What is the problem with my health insurance" was rejected. Why?

"What is with my health insurance?" was accepted. i wrote it because I know D. wants very literal translations. I do not like it. And I'm American and yes I've heard it and believe it's very regional snd not good English. I would mark it incorrect and I have reported it to D ...... . twice.
