We know health insurance and accessing care are vital to all Americans, including heart and stroke survivors. The AHA and our partners are working to educate and influence policy makers at the federal and state level through the media, in-person meetings, public hearings and other tactics. Your stories are the most powerful tool in our toolbox as we seek to illustrate how policies impact patients.
Do you have a story about health insurance or accessing care? Have you found insurance unaffordable? Do you rely on Medicaid and worry that changes in the program could leave you without coverage for needed care? Have you purchased coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace established under the Affordable Care Act? Used a short-term health plan but found that essential services weren’t covered by your insurance? Whatever your experience - WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORY!
