Share Your Story
Why do we need stories?
Your story is powerful! Stories help to put a human face to health care issues in Georgia. When you share your story, you help others understand the issue, its impact on Georgia, and its importance. Your health care story is so valuable because the reader may be your neighbor, friend, someone in your congregation, or your legislator. It may inspire others to share their stories or to become advocates.
What happens when you share your story?
Your story will stay private unless you agree to share it. When you fill out this form, someone from Georgians for a Healthy Future will contact you. We will verify your story and discuss your story sharing options—social media, meeting with your legislator, talking to a local reporter, writing a letter to the editor, and more. You can choose how you would like your story used.
“We would have never known that our retirement income could still qualify us for subsidies. This is great.” Retired in 2015, they found out with the help of an enrollment assister that their retirement income qualified them for financial help in the Marketplace. They enrolled in a plan that was $700 per month cheaper than their previous plan.
Dequnshe is a working mother of three children, but her employer doesn’t offer coverage and she doesn’t make enough to qualify for financial help in the Marketplace. “I’m working for a living, but unfortunately I don’t qualify for health care coverage.”
“This saves me a lot of money and now I have a more flexible plan than last year.” GHF’s enrollment assister helped Michele re-enroll in Marketplace coverage for 2016. He chose a new plan and identified local primary care providers that were in his coverage network.
