Long Time

I haven't been able to afford insurance for over 30 years. Ins. Co. wanted to charge me the equivalent of 2/3 of my BEFORE tax earnings.

Then, I have breast cancer (all treatment was paid for, by me, over almost five years)...and they wouldn't cover ...

Annoyed with Republicans Trying to Sabotage ObamaCare

I am so relieved that ObamaCare is law because it means I can insure my daughter til age 26, and that once she turns 26 she won't struggle with pre-existing condition restrictions. That is a huge relief for my family.

So annoyed to see that prominent ...

Medicare Matters to us grandmas!

I would never have been able to have 3 joints replaced if it weren't for Medicare. That is the one saving factor of getting older! I'll fight for it to stay as it is, or get better, but not ruined by those who really don't understand or care.

Finally! Healthcare Insurance!

Thank God!

My 27-year-old daughter will obtain her Master's Degree with a $50,000 debt; if in addition she had to pay for her medication for Rheumatoid Arthritis, she would not have anything to eat. With the Affordable Care Act, she has access to and cannot be denied ...

I got onto Medicare

I contacted Kaiser Permanente when I retired and asked about their Medicare Cost plan. It's great very low monthly premium ($15) and I get lots of free services like a Wellness exam without co pays. Those of us over 65 or disabled enough for Medicare ...

ACA: No Pre-Existing Conditions

I had major medical "pre-existing conditions". My insurance coverage was steadily increasing to the point that my monthly premium exceeded my mortgage payment. I was giddy with excitement as I was asked only one personal "medical" question: Did I smoke ...

Not really a story

Just recently I noticed that every time

NPR mentioned the Affordable Care Act they prefixed it with the adjective "unpopular". For me, the Affordable Care Act is very popular. I have a daughter who is turning 26 in June. She has a pre-existing condition. ...

Closing the Affordability Gap

Our son left his position in Chicago with an inner city school and was able to obtain even more affordable healthcare coverage through Obamacare than he had with the school he was at. The ACA is reducing the Coverage Gap in Medicare Part D for us. We ...

Healthcare Should Not be a Political Agenda

I've heard Republicans claim that they are compassionate yet many of them in the Party still try to deny healthcare to vulnerable people. My brother was one of them yet he is only one out of so many people I know who are in and those who are out of the ...
