Uninsured Triangle residents said Monday that they eagerly await the overhaul of the nation’s health care system.
“It’s just going to be like Christmas,” said DeCarlo Flythe, who lost health coverage for his family when he was laid off almost three years ago. “It’s going to be great. You know, no worries (about) the bills. We are going to go ahead and pay our co-pay and be alright.”
Flythe, a diabetic, said he checked into buying a policy for his family, but he couldn’t afford it. He recently landed another job, but the new benefits haven’t kicked in yet.
“I worry day to day, honestly,” he said. “I pray to make sure my child or my wife don’t’ get sick because, if they go to the hospital, we are looking at a couple of thousand (dollars in bills).”
