Ralph Christopher Byrd, Phoenix

Chris has twins that have been diagnosed with a condition called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), and he at one time feared they would reach their lifetime limits on care under his old insurance policy. Treating someone newly diagnosed with SMA is expensive, and his children require constant care. The Affordable Care Act eliminates lifetime caps on benefits and helps ensure Chris and his family will never have to worry about lifetime limits on coverage.
