There’s a need for continuous health coverage

Posted: Saturday, July 22, 2017 12:00 am

Anyone who has employer-provided health care may not have experienced the need to find health insurance coverage. They may not have depended upon Social Security disability, Medicare or Medicaid. Yet, they will eventually appreciate these government health care programs in their own lives or in the lives of family and friends.

• My mother, after years of working and raising a family, was diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer. She was unable to continue working after treatment and radiation therapy. Once this became evident, she relied upon Social Security disability and Medicaid for her continuing care. While living, she expressed her appreciation for the government-provided health care benefits she received. Mom felt she had invested in her future care with each paycheck earned during her career.
