Trott Endorses Legislation to Protect Patients with Pre-Existing Conditions
February 28, 2017
WASHINGTON - Today, U.S. Representative Dave Trott (MI-11) issued the following statement after cosponsoring the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2017 (H.R. 1121):
"I have met countless families across my district to discuss health care issues and the message I hear is often the same: Michigan families are experiencing skyrocketing costs and dwindling coverage. We need to make health care work for everyone. We need to make health care more affordable, provide greater access to quality healthcare, while protecting patients with pre-existing conditions' access to the health care they need."
The Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act aims to guarantee access to coverage, prohibit pre-existing condition exclusions, and ban premium rating based off of health status.
