Katherine Coupe’s letter to the editor in the July/August 2022 issue was well written and made clear the subject at hand. It doesn’t in any way change my view on the subject. As folks like me get older, we have a tendency to experience more falls that don’t require medical attention, just a strong arm or two to help us up. I don’t care what the state approved—it just seems outrageous to charge $228 to help someone get up. In my case, the number is just $40 shy of what my monthly car lease payments are and I get to drive the car a whole month.
