Unemployment Rate and Health Insurance

An estimated 85,000 people lost jobs in December according to the U.S. Department of Labor.  The loss of jobs in December brings the U.S. total to 15.3 million people who are out of work.  The impact of job loss to a person or family with bleeding disorders can be significant if they lose access to health insurance.
