Lyne, Stoddard County

Lyne is a 53-year-old wife and grandmother of eight from Stoddard County. She has lived without any insurance for years. She currently falls into the coverage gap. Lyne’s family is very dear to her, and she wants to be able to spend time with them. She especially wishes that she could play with her grandchildren. Without coverage, however, Lyne cannot obtain the care she needs for her arthritis and debilitating migraines. Chronic pain prevents her from living her fullest life and enjoying fun activities with her loved ones. She says,

“If I had Medicaid, then I would be able to go to the doctor and get the medical care I need. So, I won’t have to be in so much pain anymore.”
