On this week's episode, we'll hear why some rural residents are reluctant to sign up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act takes a big step forward next month when the new health care marketplaces open for business. The percentage of people who are uninsured tends to be higher in rural areas than cities, but as Grant Gerlock reports for Harvest Public Media, across the rural Midwest, some residents are unconvinced signing up for Obamacare is a step they want to take.
