Congrats to Obama (and why this is good for Americans with chronic medical conditions)

I just have to give my congratulations to Obama. As someone with a chronic disease and pre-existing condition, I’m happy that Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act will have a chance.

There are a couple important ways the ACA will effect Americans with chronic conditions. First, because more people will buy into the system and costs are spread more over the entire community of insurance holders, costs will be kept down for chronic patients. Second, and perhaps most important, insurers won’t be able to deny coverage based on chronic conditions.

Another big bonus: an emphasis on preventative care could help control and perhaps prevent chronic conditions.

So here’s to four more years of trying to shake up the healthcare/insurance status quo, of working giving everyone the right to a healthy life, and of not letting people fall through the cracks of our broken healthcare system.
