Local reaction mixed on health care ruling

Finding assistance in covering medical costs has been a challenge for the 55-year-old DeKalb resident, who said she was forced to retire because of her illness. The pre-exisiting condition has made it difficult for her to find insurance coverage and doctors willing to accept the reimbursement levels.
