We get it. 13% of our county is uninsured, and an additional ~19% is on a non-group plan, paying a fortune for insurance that has a $7000 deductible, such that 31% of the county really does not have access to affordable care. This is not readily known to healthcare agencies in the county. The assumption is that nearly everyone is well-insured. 1 in 3 in our county are treated as second-class citizens with reduced access to care.
