In Texas, a statewide education and outreach event focusing on the new Affordable Care Act drew more than 10,000 people to the Dallas Convention Center on Saturday, which was hosted by Blue Cross and Blue Shield and more than 30 community partners to provide health services and information. This is but a small glimpse into the world of the uninsured, or those with costly insurance coverage looking for reasonable rates.
Dr. Dan McCoy of Blue Cross and Blue Shield said, “There’s safety in having an insurance card in your pocket.”
Many were frustrated by the glitches with the Obamacare site, however, they did obtain badly needed information on the Affordable Care Act. They could compare prices and services, but actually signing up was not doable yet.
Apparently, contrary to the naysayers, affordable health insurance is sorely needed in this country.
