Mary discovered that she had a rare and serious medical condition in February of 2011, which required surgery and regular monitoring.
Subsequent related medical issues made continuing her career as a lawyer impossible. Her family's health coverage at the time was a high-premium, high-deductible plan, and the regular doctor visits her treatment required meant the co-pays added up quickly. In 2013, Mary was told that her condition had recurred, and she faced another surgery and follow-up MRIs twice a year.
Mary visited MNsure.org as soon as the site was live to explore her options. She enrolled in a plan that covers 100 percent of office visits, testing, surgeries, hospital stays, prescriptions and more—saving her family nearly $10,000 the next year.
