Under AHCA, the Only Way My Husband Would Stay Insured Is If We Divorced

florence, SC
United States

My husband and I are both disabled. I am legally blind, and he has several medical conditions that have required five major surgeries over the past ten years. We are both currently on Medicaid, but I expect to lose it next year as my (very) small business continues to grow. When Trump was first elected, I had planned on closing my business next year and getting a "normal" job with health insurance benefits to keep him insured. But if the AHCA in its current form becomes law that may not even be an option. Barring a miracle, if this law passes, the only way I know to guarantee my husband stays adequately insured, short of my death, is to get a divorce. (So much for Republicans being pro heterosexual marriage.)
