Gail Wechsler, St. Louis

Gail and her husband have a son who will be graduating from college in December. They do not know whether he will have a job with health care benefits immediately, and he has a pre-existing condition. Gail is relieved to know that because of the Affordable Care Act, she will be able to keep her son on their health insurance after he graduates and will not have to worry about him going without insurance as a young adult.
