Last night NAFC Board Member and Executive Director of the Americares Free Clinics in Connecticut Karen Gottlieb attended the CNN Town Hall with HHS Secretary Dr. Tom Price. There Karen was able to speak about her work with the uninsured for over 20 years and asked the Secretary how he plans to help our patients who often go on and off insurance due to unsteady employment and who, according to the plan, would face being charged 30% more due to a lapse in health insurance coverage. She mentioned how many of our patients can’t afford premiums due to circumstances beyond their control and often have to make tough choices.
