I work in the healthcare industry, my wife and father are doctors, and I consider myself to have an above average knowledge of the US healthcare delivery system. Yet, when my family was without health insurance, I was full of discomfort and fear.
How could this be? I have good knowledge of the system and know several medical providers personally yet still felt fearful. How must the other tens of millions of the uninsured and under-insured American families feel? I spent many nights thinking about the fear and the underlying problems.
