The Call: Tell us about your healthcare costs

Hey everyone,

March 31 – next Monday – is the deadline to sign up for health insurance through HealthCare.gov. And as that deadline looms, the debate about healthcare in this country is raging more fiercely than ever. Wherever you fall on the debate about Obamacare, the conversation about healthcare is urgently needed. According to the National Institutes of Health, “Americans live shorter lives and experience more injuries and illnesses than people in other high-income countries.”

Most of us don’t have to look far in our own lives or those of our loved ones to see that. That’s why, ahead of that deadline to sign up for Obamacare, we want to turn to you to help capture the challenge of healthcare and help us report on the escalating costs in this country.

Here’s this week’s Call to Action item for you: please send us your photo with a sign telling us how much your medical costs are per month. You can tweet your responses to @RonanDaily, email them to us at RonanFarrowDaily@msnbc.com, or let us know on Facebook.

Each day we’re going to bring you a different facet of this story. Check back later in the week as we use some of your responses to push the story forward!

Thanks again,

Ronan
