"I was fired in 2015 when I was 5 weeks pregnant. Thank goodness we had the Affordable Care Act, because I could not be discriminated against under any preexisting condition limitations. I knew my maternity care would be covered. I logged onto the exchange, compared plans, signed up for what I wanted and got fantastic coverage. I'm just so grateful that happened for me. Being able to get care when you're fired and have preexisting conditions shouldn't depend on timing." -Page Nilson
