Both of my children have pre-existing medical conditions. My husband stayed at his corporate job for years in order to provide good insurance for us, when what he really wanted to do was to start his own business. Thanks to the ACA, he was able to quit his corporate job 2 years ago and live the American dream of entrepreneurship, without us having to worry about getting medical coverage for our children. My son needed an intensive therapeutic program last year, and our private insurance paid for it. We are so grateful to have this option!
