New study finds 45,000 deaths annually linked to lack of health coverage

A Harvard Medical School study in 2009 found that 45,000 people die a year due to lack of health insurance. Many more who are underinsured may be at risk. The underinsured may delay seeking medical care unorder to see if they may "pull through" on their own, may ration medications by adjusting the dosage to other than prescribed, may self-neglect by getting care for other members of the family while denying self.
