Your Views: New health insurance program leaves some of us on the outside

POSTED: October 18, 2013 1:00 a.m.

I am confused. I finally got on marketplace to see what kind of health insurance my sister and I (I am her guardian; she has no income) can get. I live on a fixed income; my husband is terminally ill and my sister is mentally challenged. I found out we are too poor to have to get health insurance, so we are exempt and do not pay a penalty. But we are not elderly, physically challenged, pregnant and make a little too much to get Medicaid (Georgia chose not to participate in new Medicaid program).

So once again, we have no health insurance. I thought under the new law, everyone was supposed to be able to get insurance whether you could afford it or not.
