SHARE YOUR ACA STORY

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), millions of Americans have new health coverage options and new help to afford coverage that they can rely on. California led the nation in expanding Medicaid, giving working families subsidies in Covered California in order to afford private insurance, preventing people from being denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions, letting young people stay on their parent's insurance until age 26, and much more. But these options are at risk. President-elect Trump, and the Republican majority in Congress including many Congressional Representatives from California have promised that the ACA should be repealed, without a comprehensive plan to replace it. Without these new options and financial assistance, millions of folks who have benefited from the ACA will face dire health and economic consequences.

We need your help to be explicit with the new Congress and Administration about the true impact of their decisions—to fight to preserve the benefits we rely on today. Please share your story about how the ACA has helped you and your family. Your voice matters, and it will be what helps preserve this progress.

FEATURED STORY

  • “When I was first diagnosed, my insurance required me to pay 30% of the cost of my MS medication. This added up to $900 per month - the same as my rent!”
    Melanie
  • “The only provider in my network able to run my diagnostic screenings is located over 100 miles away. I can’t afford the expenses of such a trip with children at home, but I have no choice”
    Maria
  • “We didn’t work for 30 years to pay off our mortgage so we could hand our home over to the state in exchange for Medi-Cal coverage!”
    Paul
