Event organizers say an estimated 545,000 Granite Staters used to have lifetime caps on their care, so families facing a serious illness would learn that their insurance company was cutting them off when they needed coverage most. The Affordable Care Act prohibits lifetime caps on care. Furthermore, as a result of the health reform law, no insurance company can deny coverage to the as many as 69,000 New Hampshire children who have pre-existing conditions like asthma and diabetes, and now 8,300 Granite State young adults have health coverage because people under the age of 26 can stay on their parents' health insurance thanks to the Affordable Care Act.
