As if living with an invisible disability werent exhausting enough, many of us have to fight our insurance companies to get the treatment we need. Because hardly anyone can afford treatments at todays prices, our insurance companies often make the decisions about what care we receive. That decision should never be made by an insurance company, but that is todays reality.My injuries left me unable to do a full-time job with insurance benefits. If not for the Affordable Care Act, I wouldnt have access to insurance at all. With as little as a private policy under the ACA pays, I question the value of having insurance at all, but I keep it because of the threat of catastrophic illness or injury.
