Anthony has spent his life working to help customers with their mortgages. He owned his own mortgage company for 20 years. But when banks started closing up shop, Anthony had to follow suit in 2011. He tried working for a few banks but felt that their "too big to fail" mentality translated into "too big to care."
So now he works as a business development manager for a mortgage broker, but his company doesn't offer health insurance. He was worried that he and his family would have to go uninsured. Thankfully, he checked New York's health exchange and realized he qualified for affordable health insurance.
His children qualify for Medicaid. So when his son had a stomach problem, he was able to walk into the doctor's office and get the care he needed. And for Anthony, that peace of mind has proven to be priceless.
