On the Hill with Denver Riggleman - Weekly Update - August 9, 2019

August 9, 2019


I have some exciting news to share: recently I introduced a bill to protect health coverage of people with pre-existing conditions. The Protecting Patients with Preexisting Conditions Act (H.R. 4159)  will amend the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to guarantee coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions even if the Affordable Care Act is struck down in court.   

I am proud to introduce this bill which guarantees health coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions.  I support reforming our healthcare system in a way that lowers costs while ensuring coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.  This bill goes a long way towards that goal.  The pre-existing conditions provisions include: 

-Guaranteed issue and renewability 
-A prohibition on pre-existing condition benefit exclusions 
-A ban on health status underwriting 
-Inclusion of community rating

This week, I was also in our district, visiting with constituents in Fluvanna County.  I had a chance to tour Red Rocker Candy and see up close a small business that is flourishing in our local economy.
