Politics in the United States are changing every day. One of the policies under scrutiny is the Affordable Care Act, also known as the ACA and as Obamacare. The ACA made many strides towards helping cancer patients and survivors obtain and maintain their health insurance coverage. There is fear that changes made to the ACA (or the repeal of it entirely) will dramatically impede the young adult cancer community in having quality and affordable health insurance. You have the power to let your voice be heard. Are you only covered because of the ACA? Before the ACA removed lifetime caps in coverage, would you have run out of coverage due to cancer treatments? Were you able to change jobs or take time off of work because of the flexibility the ACA finally allowed people with pre-existing conditions…*cough* cancer *cough.*
