Photo detail

In this Feb. 3, 2014 photo, Maureen Grey poses for a photo in Chicago. For many older Americans who lost jobs during the recession, the quest for health care has been one obstacle after another. Grey, a 58-year-old Chicagoan, finally saw a doctor this month after a fall in September left her in constant pain. Laid off twice from full-time jobs in the past five years, she saw her income drop from $60,000 to $17,800 a year. Now doing temp work, she was uninsured for 18 months before she chose a marketplace plan for $68 a month. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
