In her Nightly News report, NBC News’ Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman shows how nurses are going out into communities to help answer questions and help families understand the new health care law.
Adriana Perez, with the National Association of Hispanic Nurses, said the majority of questions the nurses get come from uninsured families.
“People that have never been ensured don’t know what a co-payment is, don’t know what a premium is,” Perez said. “Because we are the nurses that will be taking care of these families that are going to come into our care, we want them to be prepared.”
According to NBC News, there are more than 3 million registered nurses in the frontlines of American healthcare.
