For Misty, affordable health coverage is giving her the freedom to follow her dreams.

Misty works for a small startup in Dallas, Texas on environmental issues, and while she’s very passionate about her job, the company can’t afford to provide her with health insurance.

So Misty went on www.HealthCare.gov and took health coverage into her own hands.

"Having health insurance gave me the freedom to take a job that I honestly would not have considered without it. If I fall off my bike, if I cut my hand open again, I don’t want to go broke trying to stay healthy. Now, I feel like I can focus on the fun things in life—the things I’m passionate about.”

Watch Misty’s video above, then follow her lead by visiting www.HealthCare.gov today.
