"medical costs beyond insurance coverage"

Which means we can count him amongst the nation's growing population of underinsured. Will this poor fellow end up as our local poster child for health care reform? Think you have great health coverage? Pray you don't get bacterial meningitis! At least Mr. Shimansky is lucky enough to have a community willing to support him with donations while many others do not. I wish him the best on his recovery.
