Jennie owned and operated her own small business, a retail store, for a year and a half. During that time and prior, she was uninsured. She now works part-time at The Container Store but is still uninsured. Though the Marketplace was a hassle for the first two months, she was able to enroll in a Silver plan in December 2013 with significant financial assistance and cost-savings, including no monthly premium. When her coverage began in January 2014, she was grateful to be able to go to the doctor for free well woman exams, birth control, and treatment for her migraines. Jennie also has peace of mind knowing that she finally has the possibility to go to the doctor when she’s sick.
