National Health Council Statement on Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions and Making Health Care More Affordable Act of 2019

The following statement is from NHC’s Chief Executive Officer, Marc Boutin, JD:

In light of the administration’s position on the Texas v. Azar case to render the Affordable Care Act (ACA) unconstitutional, we support the House’s actions today to stabilize the ACA markets and protect people with preexisting conditions. This must be a top priority for Congress regardless of the final outcome of the Texas case. Expanding tax credits to make plans affordable, guarantee funding so people know which plan is best for them, and undoing regulations that hurt access for those with chronic diseases and disabilities will positively impact those who need access to affordable health care the most.
