Mom Knows Best

January 9, 2014

It’s no secret that moms play an important role in keeping their children healthy. From reminding kids to eat their vegetables to making sure their adult children get covered, moms know best.

Sally Gasior of Maineville, Ohio, knows this firsthand. Her son, Edward, has cystic fibrosis, so he needs a lot of preventive care and expensive medications.

Sally has been able to help Edward with his health insurance payments over the years, but they were both excited when the Health Insurance Marketplace opened with new plans (not to mention that he can’t be turned down for coverage for having a pre-existing condition!).

With his mom’s help, Edward signed up for a Platinum plan for just $231 a month — a whopping $636 less than they had been paying each month! And the new plan even covers Edward’s doctor and prescriptions — his two must-haves.

Now, Sally can rest easier knowing her son is covered. And Edward can focus on his dream — buying his first home.
