I seek clarification on the medical cards and the idea of uncoupling the two things from each other. I think that worked well for homeless medical cards when it came to decoupling the idea of having a medical card from having an address. Is there a similarity in what needs to happen? Did an individual need to have a doctor take him or her on to get the homeless medical card or what was the situation?
