Uninsured does not equal unemployed

Galveston County Daily News (Internet / Print) 05/01/06 http://news.galvestondailynews.com/story.lasso?ewcd=45e713046890007f Mark Guidry, chief executive officer for the Galveston County Health District, says Toliver is fairly typical of the patients who turn to the district’s 4Cs clinics for medical attention. “Being uninsured does not mean that you’re poor,” he said. “For most people, it does not even mean that you’re unemployed.” The Citizens Health Care Working Group is staging meetings across the country to gather opinions about health care. The group will summarize what it hears in recommendations to be forwarded to congress and the president. The Center to Eliminate Health Disparities at the University of Texas Medical Branch plans three meetings this week in Galveston County. The meetings will be from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in League City, Texas City and Galveston.
