Eeek! It never occurred to me that people who don't have health insurance would be participating in activities like this, where there is such potential for getting hurt. I've had long periods of being uninsured in my life, it is scary to have an injury and then be more afraid of the bill then anything else. Maybe he can find an inexpensive insurance somehow? NYS has some options, I think. Also, I do believe that most hospitals in NYS have a fund that covers people who cannot pay - I know they are not allowed to turn away uninsured people.
