What #GotCovered means for Brian and Dianna: “Relief.”

October 29, 2013

Does this story sound familiar to you?

When Dianna Burke lost her job, she and her husband Brian also lost their health insurance. Although Dianna found new work, it didn’t come with benefits. Since losing their insurance plan, the couple has only been able to obtain coverage through COBRA for the hefty price of more than $1,000 per month — and even that insurance expires at the end of this year.

Millions of families have faced the kind of anxiety that comes with losing access to affordable health insurance. But through the Health Insurance Marketplace, there’s a new way to get covered.

Brian and Dianna were thrilled when they found out how much they would save when they shopped for a plan through their state Marketplace, Covered California. After looking at their options, they chose a health insurance plan that would cost just $127 per month.

Affordable health insurance now available through the Marketplace is helping families across America find quality coverage that fits their needs and their budget. For Brian and Dianna, that will amount to paying about $11,000 less for health insurance next year.

What does that mean for them?

Right now, Virginia Lindahl pays $600 each month for health insurance that barely covers the care she needs and leaves her with huge out-of-pocket costs. But because Virginia found a new plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, all of that will change on January 1st.

Virginia is like so many other Americans who can finally choose a health insurance plan that’s right for them. Here’s what she had to say about her new health insurance:
