USA, Chicago, IL, June 10-17, 2011. Uninsured until the birth of his child six months ago, Henry Edwards negotiated both the symptoms of chronic asthma and the high cost of purchasing medicine to treat it. Parenthood qualified him for Family Care, a public aid program. After 2014, the Affordable Care Act will strengthen his family's tenuous hold on health care, by formally prohibiting the exclusion of pre-existing conditions, and by providing subsidies for purchasing private insurance.
