Dyon Davidson: Affordable coverage for a job without benefits
The Affordable Care Act has actually helped me a great deal. I’m a part time instructor at the Community College, and I don’t have access to healthcare through my job. Without the Affordable Care Act, I wouldn’t have access or be able to afford my Lupus medication. I was diagnosed with Lupus 3 years ago, along with Stage 3 kidney disease. In addition to that, I have Sjögrens Syndrome, underactive thyroid and high blood pressure. My medications are expensive. Health care is expensive. I would have to pay more than $300 / month without the ACA. Now, it’s only $100 a month for coverage, and I can afford my medication.
