Real People Real Stories of the Uninsured “Rerun”

 


The Real People Real Stories
 video was produced several years ago and the circumstances of the individuals in the video may have changed…but sadly their compelling stories are still relevant and worth repeating. Imagine providing hands-on care of bathing, dressing, and other personal assistance in which you can’t practice physical or social distancing. You then test positive, have underlying health conditions, and start experiencing symptoms. But you have no health care coverage. This video should serve as a reminder that we are all a single heartbeat away from a life altering experience that could leave us uninsured or bankrupt.
