Imagine playing soccer, the game you’re passionate about, and getting hurt one day. What would you do with a $3,000 medical bill if you didn’t have health insurance?
That happened to me a year ago, and I’m still trying to pay off the bill.
Hi, I’m Stacy Sylvain of Miami. I’m 19 years old and never had health insurance.
You never know what can happen to you in life and you can’t control everything. Walking around without health care insurance was a horrible experience for me. I’ve been turned away from doctors because I did not have coverage.
That’s why I got covered. I checked out my options on the Health Insurance Marketplace at HealthCare.gov. I learned that I would be eligible for a lowered premium and enrolled in a gold plan that fits my budget.
