    Its not just having insurance. Its knowing how to get a doctor appt. Many people are insecure about their english and/or functionally illiterate. They might have insurance but not know how to find a doctor.

    I think the walk in clinics are great for that situation. Many people use them as their emergency room. And once most have insurance, we likely will need more of them.

    They should become the place to start if you're sick.

      when I had no insurance. To make a restraint metaphor, they are sort of the MCDonalds of medicine. But they are better than no care at all, and now that I am once again unisnsured, I'm sure I'll be back to them again when something goes wrong. In the meantime, I've found excellent health through meditation, massage, and Reiki, and am currently studying reflexology. I'm an LMT in CT., so if you live in North-Central Connecticut and love massage, feel free to message me  :-)
