Lost health care when we needed it most
As a mother of two young children, I suffered a tear in an artery in my neck a few years ago that led to several strokes. During my recovery, my family lost our insurance because we couldn't afford our premiums anymore without me being able to work. We were so relieved to be able to rely on Medicaid during that difficult time. I'm now back at work and we're getting our insurance through the ACA health insurance exchange. I'm blessed that my medical crisis happened at a time when I could count on getting medical care when I needed it the most and my young children never had to go without their medical care either.
