Abso-freakin-lutely!

We've gone without health care coverage in the past and had to pay out of pocket.  Thank goodness no emergencies came up, but if they had we'd have been screwed.

Yes, I am very very concerned. My son is disabled, and can't get insurance (he currently has medicaid). We can't afford insurance for him (insurance for him is sky high).
I am very concerned for my children's and other people's children's health.

If your son is receiving SSI he will have Medicaid/ Medicare for his entire life, or until the healthcare system goes bankrupt.

If only it were that simple. He has been denied for disability twice. My lawyer told me that the standard of how disabled you must be to get disability as a child is much high than the standard for adults. So he can apply at age eighteen and get it with his disabilities but the month before he turns eighteen he is not disabled enough. And that is assuming that he gets disability as an adult without having to fight for it for years like most who are disabled do.

No, I can't say that's a concern of mine. Well, it's not a MAJOR concern.
