The Affordable Care Act was passed in 2010 with the goal of providing access to health care insurance coverage to more Americans.
Comments Regarding Protections for Patients with Pre-Existing Conditions Sent to Congressional Representatives
Published February 6, 2017
The Alliance for Aging Research joined other organizations in this letter to members of the U.S. House of Representatives regarding protections for patients with pre-existing conditions. The letter noted:
“We are reaching out to you today on behalf of the millions of patients, survivors and their families who live with serious diseases and chronic illness, and the providers who care for them. Our organizations are deeply concerned about the possible loss of key protections in current law that guarantee access to comprehensive and affordable insurance coverage for patients with pre-existing health conditions. As Congress moves forward with efforts to repeal, modify or replace the Affordable Care Act, we are encouraged by the recognition that protections for patients with pre-existing conditions should be retained.”
