Low Income Health Insurance for Senior Citizens

It is a sad sign of the times that low-income senior citizens often do not have health insurance. It can come down to a basic life-choice that has seniors having to decide: groceries or medicine? What can you do for low income health insurance for senior citizens? Healthcare reform seeks to address this issue, by mandating coverage for everyone, including the elderly, those with pre-existing conditions, and those considered “high risk” by insurance companies. Currently, insurance companies are under no obligation to cover those they consider too risky a bet; they even drop coverage on people who may have held policies with them for years, simply because they feel the cost-benefit ratio no longer lands in their favor.
