I am a 44 year old who hasn't been to a doctor in 20 years (knock on wood). I believe in preventative medicine. MY HEALTH INSURANCE IS GOING UP IN PRICE. A lot! It sucks! Im a struggling small business owner having a hard time making ends meet.
However, there's always been something in the back of my mind. How could the wealthiest Nation in the world refuse medical insurance to people with PRE-EXISTING medical conditions? People who are suffering the most! People suffering from conditions like cancer, arthritis, migraines, life-long back rehabilitation (from a car accident), just to mention a few... Just seems to me our citizens deserve better.
Even with my preventative health approach I am well aware I could get in a bad accident requiring medical attention throughout the rest of my lifetime. Under the current system this was a frightening scenario! Insurance companies had the right to flat out deny me! Wow, America the beautiful?
I know the ACA has some major issues! Not everyone is going to benefit from it. But this is why I am on board- Insurance companies can NO LONGER deny Americans with PRE-EXISTING conditions.
I ask you to do one thing. Ask someone you know who has a PRE-EXISTING medical condition what they think of the ACA?
