health insurance

March 23, 2010 - Heather Ziegler

There is a woman I see walking tbe streets of Wheeling most days and some nights. You most likely have seen her as well. She used to push a cart of sorts, filled with bags and other items of someone you might believe is homeless. I do not believe this woman to be homeless as she has family in town but she CHOOSES to stay on the streets. It is obvious she needs assistance but she is not willing or perhaps not capable of making that decision. My question, under the newly-passed health insurance plan, is how do you force someone like that to buy health insurance or to even take care of themselves? How realistic is this health plan as far as monitoring and enforcing the laws? What will happen to places like Health Right? So many things are not clear in this plan that I do not know how anyone could have voted for or even against it. I only hope that it means the woman on the street will continue to receive care if she seeks it out.
