This Sept. 27, 2013 photo shows Ashley Slocki, an employee and client at the mental health recovery center FolkTime in Portland, Ore. Earlier in the year, Slocki was on her husband's employer-provided health insurance. After her divorce, she turned to a private insurer, a costly expense she could only afford with her parents' help. Now, a list of prescription pills that ran $60 under her old plan cost more than three times as much. Slocki is sometimes forced to buy a week's supply at a time, carving out money for medication, food and rent with not much left over. (AP Photo/Nigel Duara)
