Many Kids Not Getting Recommended Care: Survey

I may regret stepping into this discussion but we have private insurance and I will admit that I think twice about getting care for myself and my kids.

This quote I find annoying.

It isn't going to improve my life one iota. I still won't qualify for medicaid and I will still have sucky insurance options.

"I can afford the appointment or the medicine"
