Janny K., Milford, DE
I’ve been disabled since 2006 with chronic low back/leg pain. My medical expenses were running almost $12,000 annually until the ACA began to close the Medicare Part D payment gap. This year I estimate expenses of about $6,500, and am encouraged that they will be less and less as the payment gap closes.
I was close to bankruptcy before the ACA I’d downsized and cut every possible expense. Like many, I was jeopardizing my health by skipping doses, splitting pills and my nutrition was poor.
I’m now able to eat properly and can afford (mostly) the medication that I need to be minimally functional. Knowing this will improve with the ACA gives me light at the end of the tunnel of despair and pain.
