Can We Survive without State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP)

Washington, Dc, DC (PressExposure) October 04, 2007 -- Healthcare savings expert and author, Michelle Katz, MSN, will be one of the featured guests on WUSA, Channel 9's, Mind Over Money. This segment, which airs every Friday from 9am – 10am, examines some of the top financial stories and trends facing residents of the nation's capital. This week, Katz will be discussing some of the healthcare benefits that over 6 million children (including 600,000 adults) will potentially be losing on October 1, 2007, and how these people can find alternatives. Katz is a frequent guest for the show serving as the healthcare savings expert. More recently, she has been interviewed on several national talk shows and publications including NBC's Today Show, Prevention Magazine, Shape Magazine and the New York Daily News.

"This is just one example why the American people should not rely soly on the government to pay for their medical needs. Between the rising costs of healthcare, mismanagement of the mere 15% in of GDP dedicated to government run healthcare programs, and legislation that is inconsistent, it is no wonder that we are approaching a healthcare crisis in this country. Unfortunately, our children whose families make too much to qualify for Medicaid and not enough to pay for health insurance are the casualties of the 'SCHIP war'," says Katz. "I hope the political candidates have better answers than a blanket statement of 'universal healthcare'...The public wants real solutions with real results." Katz will offer some of these solutions along with nationally renowned Gastroenterologist, Dr. Martin Bashir on Friday's appearance of Mind Over Money, Friday, September 28th at 9:00am.
