Success Stories

Professional musician and radio talk show host David Basse signed up for Marketplace coverage after attending an enrollment event at Samuel U. Rodgers Health Center. He urges anyone who is uninsured to sign up immediately. "Because of the Affordable Care Act, I'm hopeful musicians and artists like myself, can do the jobs they want to do instead of working simply for health coverage," said Basse.
