HBWD Radio Ad 3
One point four million people in Illinois who really want to work, can't.

You see if they were employed, they would lose Medicaid health coverage, and private insurance is almost impossible to get.
This is the reality for people with disabilities.
Vince worked part-time as a law clerk, but he couldn't afford medication to control his mental illness.
And he often missed work, when he was hospitalized.
Thank goodness, he found a state program called Health Benefits for Workers with Disabilities.
With HBWD, Vince's medications were covered.
He took them regularly, and after a year of perfect attendance, Vince was hired full-time.
