Vicky, St. Charles County

Vicky is 64, and she lives and works in St. Charles County. She was diagnosed with cancer 8 years ago and also suffers from several other health conditions. Before the enactment of ACA, she was unable to get private insurance. It was either unavailable to her due to her pre-existing health conditions, or it was way too expensive. Now, she is able to get affordable health care for herself thanks to Marketplace subsidies. Vicky appreciates the flexibility her plan gives her. She now only pays $70 per month for her insurance, and most of her prescriptions are $5 each. Vicky says, “Without Obamacare I wouldn’t be able to get the care I need.”
