It’s really going to be on us.

Now that the dust has settled somewhat on the recent Supreme Court decision, we are seeing some states dig in and harden their positions against expanding health care coverage.

I truly believe that at the end of all of this, we will have a significant portion of our population who either:

  • continues to lack health coverage,
  • has coverage, but no physicians or hospitals will accept it, or
  • has coverage, but so much is excluded that the financial burden on families continues to be devastating.

And so the path forward, for many, will require:

  • a very high level of personal involvement
  • engagement with an effective support network and/ or advocacy group
  • active use of online research and management tools
  • activism- vote- engage your elected representatives.

Stay tuned, as this blog will comment on each of these issues.
