This podcast from the Alliance for a Healthy Kansas features Becky Plate, a registered nurse who manages an urgent care center. She talks about her support for Medicaid expansion and the patients who desperately need access to health insurance. Not long ago, Plate was in the same situation. She discusses the time she was uninsured and how seeking care became too expensive.
