Description:
This candlelight vigil will honor those who have suffered unnecessarily or died as the result of lack of adequate and affordable health care. Here’s one story: Carrie McBane, a restaurant worker from Jackson County, had unexplained ailments that led her to specialists she couldn’t afford. She had to decide between paying her electric bill or seeing a doctor. “I’m a hard-working woman,” she said. “I don’t qualify for Medicaid because I’m always making $80 too much.” If North Carolina had expanded Medicaid, McBane said she could have had health insurance for the last six years. McBane said she paid dearly out of pocket to see three specialists who each gave her another referral. Finally, she got into a local community health clinic, where she said the medical staff took the time to ask her questions and got to the bottom of her symptoms: She has type 2 diabetes. “Not being able to afford health care insurance has impacted every aspect of my life. In my worst, most trying moments, it made me feel that the state I live in doesn’t have my best interest at heart,” she said. “Especially when it felt like my life was on the line and it really was. It’s demeaning, and it puts a price tag on my life when there shouldn’t be a price on a human life.” North Carolina is one of only 14 states that have not taken up the federal offer of more robust reimbursement for enrollees who would be added under the measure.
