The Affordable Care Act – act now

Fat bike riders approach the historic concrete arched railroad bridge crossing near U.S. Highway 395 just south of Rosalia that's a key  part of the old Milwaukee Road rail line that is owned by Washington state and designated for trail development. It is part of the John Wayne Pioneer Trail. (Pat Sprute)

Take time to travel with one woman as she seeks and finds her way to a health care plan. Enjoy the comic depiction of her journey. One needs patience and curiosity to arrive at the goal– and more than a bit of understanding to navigate the best way through the complex process.

While many Americans are slamming the ACA, after 23 years  in healthcare, I am hopeful many of our fellow Americans can now access the preventable care and regular checkups they need to live healthier lives.  Too many times people with no insurance fear the cost of health care, visiting their local emergency department $$$ when symptoms become intolerable.  Many times these visits are too late.
