Robert is a 53-year-old husband and father of one. He is self-employed. The marketplace plan he purchased with the help of ACA subsidies saved his life. He was a healthy man when he first bought his policy, but just six months later suffered a heart attack. Robert’s coverage allowed him to get the treatment he needed to recover his health and also saved his family from bankruptcy. He says, “Without the ACA, I would surely have died that day. I think everyone should have access to healthcare.” Robert, Lafayette County
