ACA's Age Extension Helped My Son Avoid Overwhelming Student Debt

My son has been going to college for eight years because he was working full-time and only taking one or two classes per semester. With that plan he hoped to avoid graduating with overwhelming student debt.

It was the Affordable Care Act that kept him on our insurance until he was 26, but we were very anxious as that 26th birthday approached. He would no longer be eligible to be on our insurance and has a chronic health problem which he takes prescription medication for.

After hearing all the horror stories about the health care marketplace, you can imagine how relieved we were to find out that he qualified for insurance that was not only affordable but had great prescription medicine coverage.

The Affordable Care Act was just that for our family. Thank you!
