Sometimes you don't know what you have till you lose it. Our need for quality health care and our growing expectation of having it as a Right rather than a privilege. Both my wife and I were once in a position of receiving it as a benefit of corporate employment. It certainly took a lot of stress out of our lives, knowing that some if not all of the costs of dental care , check ups and prescriptions were going to be taken care of. But now through job changes and company cost cutting we are part of the un insured.
