I'm praying that the ACA has saved my oldest daughter's life.
She hasn't been able to find a full time job and the only health insurance she could get through the state only cover basic check ups, so things like the ovarian cyst and a mole on her leg had to wait until this January when the ACA change her health insurance into Medicaid. The cyst still is waiting for her last doctor to send her files to the clinic where she is now being seen, but they got her an appointment to see a dermatologist and found that the mole had stage 2 cancer cells. The oncologist is set up to do surgery once they schedule her in. We expect this to be very soon, has I find that with so many teaching and major hospitals in Baltimore, they are quick to fit serious health issues in.
Still Ruth has a ton of medical bills from when she last has hospitalized due to her depression, so she hoping her disability goes through to pay it off. Still now she can get treated for skin cancer and not worry about bills piling up. Everything will be paid for and medicines only have a small co-pay.
I still rather Obama had push for Single Payer. But compared to what American health Care was without ACA, I'm very thankful for my family's health care coverage that ACA has made affordable for the first time.
Her sister is waiting to see a dermatologist this April, as she is a even higher risk for skin cancer, and has 2 suspicious moles.
