Time after time people get hurt, injured and end up not knowing what to do because they have no insurance coverage. Insurance companies now always area allowed to stop the coverage before the treatment is complete, deny certain patient, and give only a specific amount of money to pay for the person's needs. For these reasons, there are some people who wish to have health insurance but sadly, they cannot afford it and therefore, they are uninsured.

People will no longer be worried about not having enough money to be able to get treated and most important of all, less people will become uninsured.
