@Joe Brinsfield: "Put it this way... A mom makes 2600 a month plus going to school. Has rent, car payment and normal bills. On top of all this she has a son who is a brittle diabetic that is in and out of the hospital. The health insurance companies that are available require her to pay out of her pocket non stop for meds, hospital stays and doctor visits."
Sounds to me like that mom would qualify for Medicaid.
