Tara Sherry-Torres knows what it’s like to be uninsured.
She had no health or dental insurance in her mid-20s. When she was finally able to see a dentist, she learned that her teeth were in horrible condition and she was close to having gingivitis.
Now Tara has health and dental coverage because of the Affordable Care Act, and she is dedicated to maintaining her preventative care so she doesn’t find herself in that situation again.
“It gives me peace of mind,” Tara says. “Healthy individuals make for healthy families, healthy families make for healthy communities, which ultimately makes a healthy world.”
The ACA requires insurance companies to cover the full cost of preventive care.
