— Alison S.
Alison S., a young woman from Arlington, Virginia, wrote to the President: “Today, for the first time at age 32, I picked up my prescription for oral contraception and was charged a grand total of $0.00.”
Because of the Affordable Care Act, there are birth control options available to women, with no co-pay or cost-sharing. Even with a private health care plan she has through her plan, the ACA is helping her by improving the benefits she receives.
Alison wanted to let President Obama know that she was grateful: “It is reassuring to know that our nation’s leader is advocating for such progressive measures in our modern society.”
