Individual Health Insurance in Texas Showing Support
Posted Sep 30 2009 10:32pm
According to the article “Texas Health Insurance Plans Help Residents of the Lone Star State During Natural Disasters” by Ronnie Hamilton on bestsyndication.com, when Hurricane Ike hit Texas last year everyone with injuries, even minor, were sent to the hospital for a mandatory check up.
Residents were strongly encouraged to seek medical attention as soon as possible to ensure everyone was safe. Those carrying individual health insurance in Texas were grateful they were covered. The article states that Texas has one of the highest rates of uninsured residents and this is unfortunate especially in a national natural disaster like a hurricane.
This is just one of many reasons to be properly covered, especially if you have children. The Texas government offers plans that are affordable. It is also Texas law that there be programs available free or very low cost for children whose parents are unable to provide it for them. Know your options and be sure you are protected.
