My daughter was born at 28 weeks weighing one and a quarter pounds and was 11 inches long. She was in the neonatal unit for just under four months. My husband and I were provided with accomodation at the hospital just down the corridor from the neonatal unit. My daughter received excellent care andas parents we were very well supported. This was an extremely stressful time and I am grateful that we didn't have the added stress of having to finance the medical care my daughter received, not only when she was an inpatient but as an outpatient for monitoring and follow up for many years. It makes a real difference to be able to access healthcare without worrying that you will not be able to afford the care you need. It is tragic that in the USA many people end up neglecting their health and the health of their families because of cost and easy access to services. It is nothing short of criminal to deny people the health care that everyone needs and deserves.
