Uninsured Cancer Patient Saved by Little-Known Obamacare Bridge Program on Pre-Existing Conditions

When Colorado resident Tami Graham was diagnosed with stage 1 uterine cancer, she knew she could not afford the tens of thousands of dollars needed for treatment since she did not have health insurance. That is when someone mentioned the high-risk pools established by President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The insurance helped pay for Graham’s hysterectomy, as well as follow-up care. After Graham responded to the Obama campaign’s Facebook post seeking personal experiences with the Affordable Care Act, she was invited to introduce Obama at a Denver fundraising event.
