Stephanie, Jefferson County

Stephanie is a 40 year old single, working mother that lives in Jefferson county. She currently doesn’t have health insurance, because her $10,000 annual salary is too much to qualify for Medicaid. She was diagnosed as having ADHD and takes 10 mg Adderall to keep her health condition under control. She pays $80 each month for her Adderall prescription, money that she wishes could go towards food to feed herself and her 5 year old son. Stephanie works as a hairstylist and comes from a family of hairstylists. She loves her job and enjoys making people look good so they can feel good about themselves. Stephanie wants to remain healthy, both physically and mentally, so that she can continue to do what she loves each day in order to support herself and her son. If she had health insurance, she would be able to get her medical needs treated at an affordable cost to her and do just that.
