Are you one of the 44 million people in this great nation of ours who have no health insurance, or one of another 38 million with inadequate coverage? I know I am, and the thought of it scares the daylights out of me. The only comfort I have right now, is knowing I am not alone in this crisis. Still, it is staggering that nearly one-third of Americans like myself face each day without the security that should they need medical care, it may not be available to them and their families.
I'm sure you'll agree, having none or not enough insurance, lends to postponing necessary and preventive care like annual checkups, mammograms, pap smears, blood tests and taking medications regularly to ward off health conditions that could have been avoided. Fearing high medical bills and delaying care simply causes a downward spiral that lends to higher costs for every one else.
Are there other options?
