Name: Keoshia
Location: Goldsboro, NC

Keoshia works in early education at Trinity Daycare Center in Goldsboro, NC. She is a single woman with no children and is currently uninsured. She recalls that the last time she had insurance was when she received Medicaid as a child. Due to not being able to afford health insurance or a doctor’s visit, she can’t go to the doctor when she needs to, and is left to go to the emergency room during extreme circumstances to receive care. If she had access to Medicaid, she’d be able to receive frequent check-ups and obtain treatments for health issues she may have.
