Christine O. is a mom in Orlando Florida with two young girls who had health insurance coverage through her employer, but found her paycheck being reduced by $500 every two-week pay period. She was basically working only for her employer-based health coverage. Christine reached out to a Navigator to assist her in finding affordable coverage for herself and initially her youngest daughter qualified for Medicaid, but when she checked her Medicaid status, she found out her daughter was not covered.
Christine remarked, “I never received a letter or anything” so she added her youngest daughter along with her older child onto her ACA Coverage because, she said, “health insurance is a necessity for children.”
She plans to continue working with her Navigator to see if Medicaid Redetermination is the issue and also said, “I’ve referred my friends to my Navigator because without his help, I never would have been able to find affordable insurance or know to submit an application to Medicaid for my daughter. He’s been so helpful!”
The ACA and its Navigators across the state of Florida are assisting individuals like Christine to find affordable coverage enabling them to receive the care and medications they need to lead healthier lives.
