Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions should be retained in law regardless of further amendments to, or the repeal of, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Whereas pre-existing conditions can affect any individual regardless of race, gender, age, social class, or creed;
Whereas health insurance coverage should not discriminate against those with pre-existing conditions;
Whereas pre-existing condition protections have long been supported in a bipartisan manner; and
Whereas protections for pre-existing conditions should be included in any reform of our Nation’s health care system: Now, therefore, be it
That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that Congress should—
support protections in law for individuals with pre-existing conditions; and
in the case of a court ruling that would hinder such protections, act swiftly to reinstate such protections for such individuals.
