28. And how many times has it been pointed out that high-risk pools are extremely expensive
policies with high deductibles and co-pays that make actually getting care unaffordable? Insurance you can't actually use is no insurance at all. Small fact that seems to be ignored by those who insist on not dealing with facts.
