This Mother’s Day is particularly special for millions of families this year.

More than 8 million Americans have signed up for coverage through HealthCare.gov. And for families across America, that’s making a difference – providing peace of mind for parents and kids alike.

For Debbie, a nurse practitioner in Brighton, Illinois, it means her daughter – a 22-year-old with cystic fibrosis – can now get insurance with her pre-existing condition:

My daughter just obtained a health insurance policy through the website. She is 22 years old and uninsurable until now. Lauren has cystic fibrosis. To ensure excellent coverage, I have kept her on my health insurance policy through Cobra for almost $ 1200 a month. Now she can have excellent coverage for $ 271 per month.

Lynn, a professor at The Ohio State University, wrote to tell us her son signed up for health care ahead of the enrollment deadline:

My 25 (almost 26 year old) son just signed up for health care! He called me right away and said….”that was so easy”! I was confident that it would be, but I was very pleased that he actually had such a positive experience himself.

And for Morris, a veteran living in North Carolina, it meant his mother – diagnosed with bone cancer last year – could finally get insurance coverage she needed.

More Americans are feeling the benefits of the Affordable Care Act every day, and these stories represent just a small number of ways it’s making a difference for families. Kids can no longer be denied insurance for their pre-existing conditions, young adults can stay on their parents’ plan until they’re 26, and mothers have access to well-woman visits at no additional cost.

What has getting covered meant for your family this Mother’s Day?
