ZAREPHATH, N.J.-Three years ago, if you had asked Amal Gurguis whether she was worried about a crisis in health insurance, she probably would have said no. The thirty-something mother of two small children was covered under her husband's health insurance policy, which he had through his employer.
But when her husband suffered a massive coronary on her son's second birthday, Amal's life changed. She lost her husband and joined the ranks of the uninsured.
