My name is Helen and I am 49 years old. I live in Geneva. I have no health insurance and right now, I am ready to leave my job because I can’t afford health insurance if I work. I work 70 hours a week, but if I didn’t work so much, I would be eligible for Medicaid. I have chest pain and pain in my side, but nobody can figure out what’s wrong, and I have no time or money to go to a specialist. I go to a clinic in Rochester because it’s too expensive here. I am still paying the bill from a $400 visit for a physical and gynecologist. I support the New York Health Act because nobody should have to delay care they need just because of the cost, or quit their job in order to get care.
