Faces of Change: Life Without Limits
The Lihn Family is just like any other family except their daughter is living with half a heart. Before the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies were allowed to set lifetime limits on the amount of coverage each individual gets. Almost 2 year old Zoe would have the lifetime cap on her health insurance coverage by age 3.
