During Tuesday's show, we talked about West Virginians who are struggling with high deductibles that come with plans they bought through the Affordable Care Act, or ACA as it’s also known. Deductibles are what a consumer has to pay before their insurance kicks in. That story elicited quite a bit of feedback from our listeners. So today, health reporter Kara Lofton talks with Renate Pore, chairwoman of the West Virginia Medicaid Coalition, about some of the ways the ACA is affecting West Virginians.
