Jacobs Cosponsors Legislation to Protect Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions


(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Chris Jacobs (NY-27) has cosponsored the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2019 (H.R. 692).

“Protecting coverage for individuals with pre-existing conditions is a bipartisan priority that is critical to the well-being of the most vulnerable in our community,” Jacobs said. “As the son of a physician, access to quality and affordable healthcare is something I care deeply about. I am proudly working with my colleagues to lower the cost of prescription drugs, increase transparency, and decrease the cost of healthcare in the United States.”

H.R. 692 – The Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2019 – would preserve access to health care for people with pre-existing conditions if the Affordable Care Act is significantly changed or repealed.
