More than 10 million people have enrolled for healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Yet, millions more are still uninsured, paying too much for health insurance, or unaware that they are eligible for affordable or no-cost coverage.

This is the third day, in which we are partnering with healthcare advocates and bloggers across the country in order to encourage everyone who has signed up for health insurance under the law to share their story and shed light on the process. We have been disseminating these stories from all different sources by state, and over three days.

Sharing our stories is powerful. It is the reason the ACA was passed in the first place. Stories are equally important to encourage people to enroll in a healthcare plan. Please feel free to share your or your family’s healthcare story in the comments section below and share this link far and wide. Together we are a powerful force for healthy families!
