C.G., Howell County

C.G. is a 54-year old woman from Howell County. She has worked several part-time jobs but was never offered health insurance by her employer. With the high premiums, she could not afford to purchase health insurance on her own and was uninsured for 12 years. With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, she was able to find an affordable insurance plan on the Marketplace. Eligible for over $400 in tax credits, C.G. found an affordable plan that will allow her to go to the doctor and take care of her health. She finally has “peace of mind” and she no longer has to face the choice between “spending money to buy food or see the doctor.”
