    your daughter has to go through this hell, but is it possible that come 2014 she would be within the Medicaid bracket?  It's my understanding that a good many people will find themselves within that bracket - in the states that accept Medicaid (and odds are most will, if not all but Arizona), Medicaid is going to become a really wide-reaching program and will be available to many lower-income employees (and yes, many college grads are lower-income in today's world).  I've spent a long time looking at these issues because I have numerous disabilities, although my situation does not at all resemble your daughter's - although I have a huge prescription budget, I go month-to-month without crises, although a major medical event for me is all but certain every five years or so.

    Still, while I'm a huge supporter of the ACA for getting us a long way to where we need to be, we're not all the way there yet, and I'm so sorry that you and your family have to be some of the people bearing that burden :(.
