The ACA Is the Only Thing Keeping Our Family Afloat
My husband and I both work in the nonprofit sector. Every day we spend in service to others. Yet both of our small nonprofits are not able to offer health insurance. The Affordable Care Act is the only option for us. Last year we discovered that my son has a hearing impairment and needs a hearing aid. We were blown away by how expensive they are. At the same time, we are in the midst of searching for a diagnosis for my husband for a mystery illness. Our local doctors are stumped. To be blunt, the ACA is the only thing keeping our family afloat right now in the midst of so much uncertainty — uncertainty about my family's health and how to plan for our future.
