Rachel has two young sons with autism. She was in the coverage gap for several years because she dedicates most of her time to caring for her two boys. She gained Medicaid coverage temporarily due to income loss at the start of the pandemic. When that emergency coverage ends, she dreads going back into the coverage gap, having to defer care she needs or face mounting medical debt.
