Few utilize help available at TennCare fair
"It's a little frustrating when you sit there looking at each other, and waiting for someone to come in," said Sarah Hall of the TennCare Consumer Advocacy Program. "But I think there are reasons, and the biggest of them is those who need the help are either too sick or overwhelmed. I fear a lot have given up."
No, Sarah, the biggest of them is that these people have been trained that they are entitled and they don't expect to have to do anything for themselves. Don't you know that you and the others with you should drive to their houses, fill out the paperwork for them, and then come back to drive them to their appointments?
