Walberg Supports Bill to Protect Americans With Pre-Existing Conditions
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) has cosponsored legislation by Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) to preserve health care access and protections for individuals with pre-existing conditions. H.R. 892, Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act, guarantees access to coverage, prohibits denying benefits due to pre-existing conditions, and bans premium rating based on health status.
“We must continue to protect our most vulnerable populations, and I am pleased to join my colleagues in introducing this bill to provide peace of mind to patients with pre-existing conditions,” said Walberg. “This legislation affirms our longstanding commitment to safeguarding individuals from being denied coverage and treated unfairly because of a pre-existing health condition. We need a health care system that works better for all Michigan families, expands options for consumers, and makes the cost of care more affordable.”
