People's Healthcare Stories

Stories about healthcare situations of different families, and how the new law would help.

Watch a 6-minute video from FamiliesUSA that illustrates why the Affordable Care Act is needed. Three families tell their stories. 

  1. A young couple with child couldn’t afford healthcare. The father finally got a job with healthcare benefits, but too late.
  2. A woman who lost her business and healthcare coverage during the recession, and then found she had a pre-existing condition.  
  3. A young couple with a child born with hemophilia. The cost of his needed medicine brought them close to the lifetime benefit cap in their healthcare policy.
