Individuals With Preexisting Conditions Potentially Unprotected

Republican Promises of Preexisting Conditions Protections Ring Hollow
– Inside Health Policy

Manatt’s Joel Ario, a managing director with our Manatt Health team, was interviewed by Inside Health Policy for an article on the Republicans’ stance on protecting individuals with preexisting conditions.

The publication noted that while President Donald Trump and several Republicans have claimed that the ACA’s preexisting conditions protections will not be taken away, patients should examine their coverage to determine if they will be covered going forward.

“The litmus test for whether people with preexisting conditions are being protected is whether they remain part of a single risk pool that includes the healthy people in the marketplace,” said Ario.
