A positive story about Obamacare

I have heard so many stories about the horrors of the Affordable Care Act but no positive ones. Well, here is a story no one is reporting on because a success story is a boring one.

My 20-year-old son is again covered by my wife’s culinary insurance, as is my 22-year-old daughter.

My 29-year-old daughter has insurance through Nevada Health Link, including medical, dental and a vision add-on for $5.33 per month. She has a pre-existing condition that would not have been covered otherwise.

My 33-year-old son has been added to the Medicaid rolls through Nevada Health Link, as he doesn’t have a large monthly income.

Although I have insurance through my job for myself, I am heading to the Nevada Health Link website to see if I can get a better insurance rate with Obamacare.

Right now, with my employer-sponsored plan, I have to pay $60 per month, and I can’t use my regular dentist or doctor.

It would certainly like to know if I am the only lucky one whose entire family has benefited from the new health care law.
