Lisa, St. Louis County

Lisa is a young woman who was able to take a job with a small business that she’s excited about. She no longer has to stay in a job or pick a job solely out of fear of being uninsured. The Marketplace has given her new options. With financial assistance, she was able to get a silver plan that was comparable, if not better, than her previous employer’s plan. She can now go to the doctor for well woman exams, get annual check ups, and no longer has to avoid going to the doctor because something might later be dinged as a pre-existing condition. Her family has had pre-existing conditions, so she can see the promise that the Marketplace will bring for both herself and her family.
