Son now has Obamacare

We were paying $690 per month for our 28 year old son to have insurance. He went online and quickly got Medicaid through the AFA. As a graduate student with low income, it's costing him nothing.

Clear, comprehensive, and cost-effective healthcare - finally!!!

Although my family is relatively well-to-do and has always had so-called top-of-the-line healthcare coverage, for the first time in my life, I was able to easily compare healthcare options. And I was able to make those comparisons with clear visibility ...

Graduate Student paying out of pocket

I work part time as an adjunct reading instructor

I went several years during this last recession without any medical insurance and finally my mom said to apply for Medicare of which I did while I was briefly without any work in 2010 and means to take care of my family. I got a job a few months later ...

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 ...


Peaceful Sleep

I sleep better at night knowing that there is now access to affordable healthcare options due to the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare).


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.

A Good Nights Sleep

Thanks to the changes already in place with the new healthcare law, I can provide healthcare for my 23 year old daughter who is still in school and not employed.

Texas Teachers Need More

I was an adjunct professor for over five years and taught a full load without blinking an eye. I was proud of my academic credentials and invested a lot of time and money to gain my credentials required to teach at the university level. By year six, I ...

Caring for a family

I have a wife who has migraines and seizures. My oldest two children are out of the house and starting out on their own. My youngest is in high school and has been diabetic since she was 7.

I am the sole breadwinner for the family.

Without the Affordable ...


Finally! Healthcare Insurance!

I am retired and am covered by Medicare plus I also pay for a supplemental insurance plan, so I am fortunate. My grandchildren would not have health insurance were it not for Obamacare. One is a 20-yr old college student and one is 24 and is a pastry ...

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 ...

My Friend Richard

Richard has a pre-existing condition. He had stage 4 throat cancer a few years ago. He had been unable to afford regular coverage because of that and was only able to buy catastrophic insurance which did not cover his PET Scans. He enrolled in Obamacare ...

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. ...



I work for a non-profit, and as is the case for many low-budget places that serve others - our wages are not terrible, but not very high either. Paying for health insurance for my two kids would be pricey (over $400/month) and put a major strain on my ...
