Just Off Insular Senate Floor, Life of the Uninsured Intrudes

Some private studies suggest that one in three Americans under the age of 65 may have been uninsured at some time in the last two years.

U.S. Senators have access to a wide range of insurance options through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program. Congress has its own “attending physician” — actually, a team of 5 doctors and 14 nurses who work in the Capitol and nearby Congressional office buildings. Lawmakers can fill prescriptions at a small pharmacy in the Capitol. For more serious problems, they can use nearby military hospitals.
