My soon to be ex-husband who I no longer live with lost our family coverage last February when he lost his job with the family company he had worked for for 13 years. As a single mother with three daughters I could not afford private insurance (I am a real estate broker working on property management - thus an independent contractor with lots of business expenses and not a lot of income). For the first time ever I am on Medicaid (as of last May) for myself and my daughters. (5, 8 and 14). Though it is not nearly as good as my previous private insurance I pay no Co-pays for doctor visits nor prescriptions. We would have zero health coverage without ACA. I am highly thankful!
