Stories of Obamacare savings

The math is simple: Better coverage, lower costs. Americans across the country are happy about their Obamacare savings, and they're taking to their local papers to talk about it. Take a look at these letters published in local newspapers.

Affordable Care Act feels like I won the lottery
"I must add my so so appreciative voice to all the press about the Affordable Care Act (ACA). I must say it is the best thing that has come along in my lifetime since 'sliced bread.' My husband and I paid $14,520 in premiums alone this year for very high deductible policies. The ACA is allowing the premium cost to stay within 9.5 percent of your income if you are in the 400 percent above poverty income range. Our premiums were well above that percentage of our income. This high premium stuff with riders and coinsurance has been going on for us since 2007 when we lost our group coverage, with hugely increasing premiums every year." —Mimi Hood Dayhuff, Bozeman Daily Chronicle. Bozeman, Montana.

Obamacare savings
"My old plan was $376 a month with a $3,500 deductible, and I pay the first $5,000 of a hospital visit. Starting Jan. 1, I pay $268 a month with a $1,250 deductible, and I pay the first $1,000 of a hospital visit. Thanks, Obama!" —Tiffany Bair Gillooly, News & Observer. Cary, North Carolina.

Letter: Health care reform
"Too many people don't know about the excellent coverage of routine screenings included in the Affordable Care Act...I'm thrilled that, through the Affordable Care Act, almost all citizens can now have the good coverage that I have had. By shifting emphasis from treating sick people to helping keep all people healthy, the Affordable Care Act is poised to transform health care in the U.S., both its outcomes and its costs." —Patti Gillespie, Sun Journal. New Bern, North Carolina.

The Affordable Care Act is bringing a much needed change to the health care industry that means real savings for American families. But it's not just about the money. It's about the number of nights that are a little more restful. And it's about the number we'll never know: how many illnesses and injuries Obamacare prevents.
