With his wife being an author, they get paid in irregular lump sum payments - royalties or advances - so it makes it hard to get into any of the low or no cost insurances we have here in NY. They base if off of their annual income instead of monthly and that puts them over the line. Unfortunately when they do get the money they are throwing it at all teh bills that haven't been paid for months. So authors and artists, like Wendigo, learn to adapt to not having insurance for the most part until they hit the big time. It just means that all of her next royalty payment will go towards paying his hospital bill. :-(
