    You don't pay for my coverage. I pay for it.

    In this instance, my understanding is that companies are required to cover the pills, whereas before perhaps they did not have to. What I know is that the pills had not been free. And it is my understanding that the reason they were free is because under the ACA they are required to be covered.

    What's far out is that some may say that you don't say that the government does anything good. Then when I say something good, I get criticized. Amazing.

    I had the same experience. My doctor put me on birth control for endometriosis and other medical conditions. She put me on a specialty type of birth control that there is no generic for. It would could $100 a month without insurance. I didn't know what my insurance was going to cover. They initially denied coverage and suggested my doctor try something else, and she argued with them. I had to wait 24 hours for the company to approve her request. Then I was nervous picking up my script, because I thought I was going to pay a lot... but it turns out it was free.

    Thanks Obama!!!!!

    BTW... it's really helping me manage. I was in so much pain before. I am a very happy customer.

However, when they realized they needed to put it on my insurance, IT TURNED OUT THE PILLS WERE FREE AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING!!!! MAN WAS I HAPPY!!! The pharmacist informed me that the pills were free because of the Affordable Care Act.

    Not only that, but I have a daughter who just got out of grad school. Because of the ACA she is able to be on my insurance until she finds a job. That is a very great benefit for her.

    Bottom line is that, I must really thank Obama. He has actually helped me. He actually saved me $125 today!!!

    The thing is this, Obama said he wanted to do things to make a difference in the lives of middle class people like me. Man did I really feel it in my pocket. I really had not noticed it before, but Obama has made a difference! I guess this kind of thing would be meaningless to a rich person, but these things actually mean something to me.

    Way to go Barack Obama!!!!!

    I still don't take back all the bad stuff I have said about him tho!!!

    So you know what I mean. That is great! For me what I find is that there are so many government programs that do little for me. For example, I am having to pay for one of my kids tuition and books in college. There are grant programs but they say I make to much money. WOW! Could have fooled me.

    That's what my pharmacist told me too. Because of ACA, my birth control was free.

    I was stressed out too. I have been having a difficult time with endometriosis, and I wasn't looking forward to paying nearly $100 a month for medicine that wasn't even guaranteed to work. It was just added stress on top of the stress of having endometriosis and dealing with constant pain. But I got the medication for free, and it seems to be working. I couldn't be happier.
