Health insurance the self-employed can afford
Los Angeles Times - Jill Hudgins

I can’t afford to get sick. Like 47 million other Americans, I don’t have health insurance. The government should issue identification tags for people like me. Call it a DND (Do Not Dial) order for the medically uninsured. That way, if strangers see us on the street — injured, ill or otherwise ailing — they won’t be tempted to call 911. They’ll spot the DND tag and keep on walking. They’ll tell other passersby, “Don’t bother, she doesn’t have insurance.”
