JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In Duval County 145,000 people have no health insurance, Karen Hanna is one of them.
"I tried to blame my situation on the government or the place I retired from," said Hanna.
Hanna, a retired teacher, said even with a part time job, the cost of insurance is too much.
"When you're only getting one thousand dollars and 800 goes to insurance," she said. "I'm just living for Medicare."
Hanna, 63, is among the working and uninsured and turned to Volunteer in Medicine, a non profit, for her health care needs.
"If they weren't here I would be devastated," she said.
As long as you are working and meet VIM's income guidelines, the service is free. Mike Weinstein is CEO of Volunteer in Medicine.
"We see about 500 patients a month, 6000 a year," said Weinstein. "It has been like that for ten years."
