There are so many health insurance options out there to help people with low incomes like medicare, chip, etc. Unfortunately even with those some people can't get help. I have a friend who have a very low income but don't qualify for government help with health insurance, and they can't get private insurance because no company will accept them because of past medical problems. So they are stuck paying hundreds and thousands of dollars for medical expenses, even though they can't afford it. Stuff like this makes me really wish there was some kind of healthcare reform here.
