Uninsured in Hays County

Regardless of what the House and Senate do about the national budget, the Affordable Health Care Act is in effect, in part, and becomes fully effective on Tuesday, Oct. 1.

The program, despite what you may hear elsewhere, is just for people who don't have insurance, people who are not on Medicaid or Medicare.

In Texas, that's 33 percent of the population or nearly 5 million.

In Hays County, that's 22 percent of the population.

If you are uninsured or know of someone who is uninsured, we can help here at the Wimberley Village Library. We have information that could be of use. And we know how to access information via the Internet. Just drop by.

The Health Care Act may be for the uninsured but it will definitely affect all of us. Bring on 5 million more patients all of a sudden, in Texas alone, without adding more doctors, facilities, etc. I forecast waiting times for essential studies, such as MRI and much more plus much higher premiums for those who are insured already. Time will tell.
