Tell Us Your StoryThe Families USA Consumer Story Bank
Did you or someone you know enroll in new health care coverage? Share your story and together let’s show how the Affordable Care Act is helping real people.
Are you one of the millions of Americans who will benefit from health reform? Perhaps you stayed on your parents plan until you were 26, maybe you no longer have to worry about lifetime caps on insurance, or maybe you're planning on enrolling in the exchanges. Or are you someone who is still waiting for help? Perhaps your state didn't expand Medicaid or you're still struggling with a high deductible. If so, we want to hear your story!
We've been collecting personal health care stories for years, illustrating the human need for health reform. Now that we’ve crossed the finish line, it's time to educate the public about health reform and how it will affect them. The best way to do that is to tell your story, giving a real example of the status quo and the impact of change.
Here are a few examples of the kinds of stories we’re collecting:
If you think any of the above describe you, or if you think you’ll be impacted by reform in another way, your story can go a long way in educating the public about reform. After we talk with you, you may have the opportunity to interview with a reporter, speak to or in front of elected officials, or share your story at an event. Of course, we will always talk with you before each opportunity, but the first step is to come forward.
