Do you remember what our health care system was like before the Affordable Care Act? I do.
I’m a health care provider who saw first-hand how poorly our system treated the underinsured. I had patients who delayed care because they couldn’t afford their co-pays. I had relatives who were denied coverage by insurers because they had diabetes. Far too many in my community lacked access to any care whatsoever.
