Rachmaninoff Posted May 27, 2009 Share Posted May 27, 2009 I'm sure this isn't anything new, people refusing treatment since they don't have insurance to cover it. Full story can be found here: [URL="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30628634/"][U]Recession forces many to leave ?against medical advice,? doctors say[/U][/URL] The main reason this stuck in my mind is a number of the school districts around here have reduced the hours of all part time teachers so they no longer qualify for medical insurance. So for many of them, starting this fall, they'll have no medical insurance since purchasing a policy separately is more than they can afford. So the claim to not having a means to pay for it, is all to real. I lucked out and this won't happen to me, though I'm at a university which is seperate from the state schools, but still. o_O I understand they need to cut back, but it seems like a really cheap move to do that instead of cutting back on other things. So anyone here affect by this kind of thing? Have you ended up with no insurance or do you know someone who has? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
