Enrollment under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was a little easier for some Cincinnati residents. On Monday, March 17 the "Countdown to Get Covered" bus tour made a stop in Cincinnati. The stop is part of a national campaign focused on encouraging people to sign up for health insurance.
Like the rest of the country, Ohio and Kentucky are rolling out their health exchange programs as part of the Affordable Care Act.
Ohio is going with the federal program while Kentucky is running its own marketplace.
Natalie Gordon of Elsmere is excited about the new program. She has ventricular septal defect (VSD), a heart condition that requires regular cardiologist visits. Despite having a job, Gordon says she's either been unable to afford health insurance in the past or has been turned down because of her condition.
