Amanda is a Nebraskan whose hands know how to do hard work. After Hurricane Katrina struck Mississippi, Amanda moved there to work and help with the recovery.

A couple years ago, she was working 60 hours a week as a restaurant manager when she developed an auto-immune disorder, but without health insurance she couldn’t afford tests to find out what was wrong. Her work hours dwindled until she could only work a few hours each week. She even looked into moving away from Nebraska just so she could get health coverage.

Insuring the Good Life means Nebraskans like Amanda could afford to test, diagnose, and treat their conditions, then get the care they need to return to work full-time. Nebraska needs to keep all of the energetic, hard-working people like Amanda that we can.
