Don't say "coverage," do say "cover."

Don't say that: 

Coverage, when referring to insurance e.g. Obamacare, "The Affordable Care Act" or the Trump-backed version, American Health Care Act (AHCA)

Do say this: 

Cover.

Why?: 

Newspapers provide coverage, the amount of paint you need to buy for a wall is decided by its coverage.

The protection provided by insurance is "cover."

So, never, ever, talk about "coverage" in relation to e.g. health care cover.

Why? It's wrong and it makes you sound stupid.

Use the correct word and you sound like you know what you are talking about.
