MomsRising collects stories from our members all across the U.S. about how health care policies are impacting families. Here is a powerful story about the need to make sure everyone has access to quality, affordable health care from a MomsRising volunteer, Nikki, in Florida: 

Does your family have a health care story? Personal experiences are powerful and can make a HUGE difference in helping elected leaders and others understand how health care policies impact families. Have you or a family member:

  • Had COVID-19 (coronavirus) and had to receive treatment?

  • Had a ‘pre-existing condition’ like asthma, diabetes, or high blood pressure (or even a c-section)?

  • Gotten health insurance coverage through your state’s Marketplace or Medicaid program?

  • Had an illness or disability that requires expensive prescription drugs or frequent medical visits, treatments, or surgeries?

  • Experienced discriminatory behavior from a medical professional?

  • Received a surprise medical bill after receiving medical treatment?
