What has health reform meant to this country? That's a question being answered by millions of Americans every day. Cody is one of them. Read more of their stories here.
Cody began his letter to the President with this line:
"I don't have a complaint." Here's why.
Cody grew up a self-proclaimed "normal kid" in Carmel, Indiana. After his mom passed away, he was cut off financially and left unable to afford health insurance.
During his first year studying musical theater in Philadelphia, Cody remembers eating only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. On multiple occasions, he avoided going to the urgent care center and ended up in the emergency room instead -- leaving him with collection agencies chasing him with bills for thousands of dollars that he couldn't pay.
It's an experience that all too many young people have been familiar with -- and one that changed for Cody when he was able to purchase an affordable insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
