    Has the adding of tens of millions of people to the healthcare insurance under ACA been beneficial?

    Has the quality of healthcare significantly improved because of the ACA.
    Or at least what benefits have you personally seen as a result of the ACA.

    Before ACA, I had no insurance, and no hope of getting any, since the premiums for a woman my age were roughly the same as my monthly mortgage payments.

    Now, I have insurance. I've had a physical for the first time in over a decade. I have a primary care physician. I no longer have to rely on Doc in the Box or the emergency room, because I can afford to go see my doctor before things get out of hand.

    I should also say this: I had cancer without insurance, just before ACA started accepting enrollment. I was out around $35,000 from my savings and retirement funds, plus I've been paying off hospital bills monthly ever since. That won't happen now that I have insurance. My out of pocket expenses are limited. I won't be at risk of losing my house, or my future, if I get sick again.
