Jared has type 1 diabetes and recently lost his job. While employed, he was lucky enough to have insurance and keep his diabetes under control. Now that he’s unemployed, he knows he’ll run out of medications to keep him healthy and potentially risk serious health complications or possibly his life. If he were able to qualify for Medicaid or affordable insurance coverage, his life would be tons better. He wouldn’t be looking six weeks down the road and wondering if his body would shut down or go into a diabetic seizure. He’d be healthy and able to pull himself and his family back up and find gainful employment.
