July 1 = new insurance! for some…

Starting July 1st, many “high-risk”, uninsured individuals will be able to apply for insurance through the government – either their state government if it chose to do its own thing or through the federal government if their state chose to not implement the programs on its own.  However, only those individuals with pre-existing conditions who have not had insurance for the past 6 months will be able to apply.  This legislation is a good start to help those of us who are as of now “uninsurable,” but this measure still leaves out many that need care now.  Who can wait 6 months?
