The new uninsured

Washington Post, February 3, 2009

Some counties and municipalities are holding lotteries where residents who lack health insurance and money to pay for medical care compete for health coverage openings. The lottery is just one example of the fate of the newly uninsured—the growing numbers who once had jobs and insurance and now seek treatment with neither. Neither rich nor poor, this group doesn't readily qualify for public programs such as Medicaid but often can't afford to buy insurance or pay hospital, doctor and drug bills.
