Robin, Jefferson County

Robin is 58 years old and lives in Arnold, Missouri. She dedicates her time to caring for her elderly parents who require full-time assistance. Although Robin has tried multiple times to get health insurance, she doesn’t qualify for Medicaid. She has been in the coverage gap without insurance since 2006. Robin hasn’t been to a doctor in years and worries about her health. Even though she is relatively healthy and doesn’t have any current health issues, she has not been able to get any preventive services or screenings in over ten years. “I could have cancer right now and I wouldn’t know,” says Robin.
