The Faces of Health Care: Christopher T. | The White House #UniteBlue

“I cannot thank you enough for doing what you can…to help the American people.”

Christopher T. from Santee, California signed up for quality, affordable health insurance under the Affordable Care Act in January of 2014 — and he’s “loving it.”

Christopher, 39, is healthy and active — in fact, he rides his bicycle more than 2,000 miles each year. But he understands that having good health insurance is critical to staying healthy.

When he was 24, he bought his own health insurance plan when his mother couldn’t keep him on her plan any longer. Soon after, his monthly premium was going up $30 per month on average.

“If I hadn’t chosen different plans with less benefits just to keep my monthly premiums affordable, I’d be paying over $500/month easily,” he writes.

Now, thanks to the ACA, his monthly premium is down to $231 per month.
