Man Needs Coverage So He Can Work to Support His Kids

Jason is in his 30s. He holds two jobs to pay for child support and his own living expenses.  Neither of Jason’s jobs offers health insurance and when he recently suffered a back injury he was unable to afford physical therapy.  He was eager to sign up for health insurance, but learned that he doesn’t earn enough to qualify for reduced-cost insurance in the health exchange and he doesn’t qualify for Medicaid.  Jason worries about how he will provide for his children if an injury makes him unable to work.
