Solana Beach man mentioned in recent Obama speech

By City News Service

A 57-year-old former software engineer from Solana Beach made national headlines this week for his letter to Barack Obama, which was shared by the president in a televised speech as he announced that 7.1 million Americans have signed up for health care under the Affordable Care Act.

“Sean Casey from Solana Beach, California, always made sure to cover his family on the private market, but pre-existing medical conditions meant his annual tab was over $30,000,’’ Obama said from the White House Rose Garden April 1. “This year, the Casey family’s premiums will fall from over $30,000 to under $9,000.’’

For his part, Casey told reporters that he was surprised to hear his name and story in the six-minute speech but pretty excited, too.

Under the policy he bought through Covered California — the state’s program under the Affordable Care Act — Casey will pay about $700 a month for three family members, including himself. He said he wrote his letter to Obama to tell him that the health law has given him piece of mind.
