I have a Medicare advantage plan and if I didn't have it available to me I'm not sure what I would do. I have multiple preexisting conditions and am dependent on about 12 different drugs to just get put of bed and function. If I lost that or had a large deductible I wouldn't be able to afford my medical care. I have the double concern because I am on Social Security disability.
On ACA, everything was less money out of my pocket. I had total knee replacement surgery in March. I expected to be there for 2 days but due to pneumonia and a collapsed lung it was 8 days. My portion to pay was only about $1,500. I'm still paying but I wouldn't have been able to afford it without my plan.
