    I was amazed by the plans on the new marketplace—and you could be too.

  • What does health insurance mean to this 20-something?

    Hint: It's the freedom to do what I want.

    Taking a risk in business is one thing, but taking a risk with my health is not an option. Sure, my health will always be a factor in my life, but whose isn’t? The important thing is that it doesn’t define who I am, and it doesn’t dictate my choices. Because I’m covered, I can live the life I want to live, and that’s what matters.
