How the ACA will help us
I'm lucky to have insurance through my work. However, my brother-in-law works for a restaurant chain. The insurance they have is expensive and, believe it or not, if you miss work because you are sick, they will cancel your insurance. What's the point of having insurance if you lose it as soon as you get sick! He is hoping that the ACA will offer him a chance to get insurance that he can depend upon. Also, my son was born with a heart defect. I am thrilled that he can no longer be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition, and that the lifetime limits have been lifted, as both of those could become an issue for him.
