Financial uncertainty.

For Korby, a singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tennessee, “financial uncertainly” is one of the hardest parts of pursuing his career.

And despite always being healthy, Korby knew that “it would only take one trip to the emergency room to really derail me financially.”

Spurred by a friend, Korby visited HealthCare.gov, and says he was “surprised and grateful” to see that he had affordable options—he’ll only be paying $17 a month for health coverage.

"Having health insurance means I can still continue to fish for the next song that's going to mean something to me and other people, and that it's going to be okay if something happens along the way. It’s a good feeling."

Millions of Americans like Korby have enrolled in Affordable coverage—follow their lead by visiting www.HealthCare.gov today, and if you’ve already enrolled in coverage, share your #GetCovered story with us by clicking here.
