Even though economists have taken to claiming the economy is rebounding, unemployment is still in double digits and nearly half of those out of work have been so for more than six months. That's more long-term unemployed than at any time in more than 60 years. What this means for starters, is that more and more Ohioans are falling back on charity care and Medicaid when it comes to their health needs, and it's just not clear the safety net can hold up. Thursday morning at 9, join host Dan Moulthrop for a check up on Ohio's health care safety net.

I have type I diabetes and have full insurance coverage for my medical costs. This has enabled me to stay complications free for over 20 years. This saves all of us greater costs.
