Hi Taylor,

We don't have any articles on this at MedHelp.org and Sugar Sense, but it appears from this article advertising the ACA that these plans work well for those with type 1.

However, the enrollment deadline was 1/31. You can see if you still qualify here:

Good luck to you!

I dread this day. No matter what insurance going to be outrageous. My daughter was diagnosed at 4 and she is 17. I'm just glad we decided to get life insurance right after she was born for the family.
