My Grandsons heart problem

My grandson was born with tetrology of fallow. A heart defect that required open heart surgery when he was two months old. Thankfully my daughter who was 17 at the time had medicaid. It covered all the expenses, over 100,000 dollars worth. Without medicaid, my grandson would have died. He is now 11 years old and doing fine. He may need minor surgury when he is about 17 but thankfully the surgery was a complete success. I know that because of obamacare, he would face being rejected for future insurance because of a pre-existing condition. This is important because of the condition he was born with.
