Sessions Introduces Resolution to Protect Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions

October 2, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee, introduced H. Res. 1089 to ensure that any healthcare plan crafted by Congress to replace Obamacare would protect patients with pre-existing conditions from high costs and limited health insurance options. 

"It is painfully obvious that Obamacare has failed the American people," said Congressman Sessions. "From sky-rocketing premiums to failed markets, this one-size fits all so-called plan has not accomplished any of the lofty goals Democrats promised it would. In my healthcare plan, I made sure to preserve patient protections, especially ones to prevent anyone from discriminating against patients with pre-existing conditions. To cement these protections, I proudly introduced this resolution to ensure that patients with pre-existing conditions are protected from the erroneously high costs and the limited options they are experiencing now. I am glad to lead my colleagues in this effort to fight for those who need it most and ensure their access to affordable and high-quality healthcare."
