Cover Me: A Health Insurance Memoir (Class in America) by Sonya Huber

<div> <div>Growing up in middle-class middle America, Sonya Huber viewed health care as did most of her peers: as an inconvenience or not at all. There were braces and cavities, medications and stitches, the family doctor and the local dentist. Finding herself without health insurance after college graduation, she didnt worry. It was a temporary problem. Thirteen years and twenty-three jobs later, her view of the matter was quite different. Hubers irreverent and affecting memoir of navigating the nations health-care system brings an awful and necessary dose of reality to the political debates and propaganda surrounding health-care reform.</div> <div></div> <div>I look like any other upwardly mobile hipster, Huber says. I carry a messenger bag, a few masters degrees, and a toddler raised on organic milk. Whats not evident, however, is that she is a veteran of Medicaid and WIC, the federal governments supplemental nutrition program for women, infants, and children. In<i>Cover Me</i>, Huber tells a story that is at once all too familiar and rarely told: of being pushed to the edge by worry; of the adamant belief that better care was out there; of taking one mind-numbing job after another in pursuit of health insurance, only to find herself scrounging through the trash heap of our nations health-care system for tips and tricks that might mean the difference between life and death.</div> </div
