HIDDEN COSTS: Understanding the Fine Print of the Senate Health Care Bill
U.S. Senators from Pennsylvania Announce Positions on Current Health
Insurance Protections for People with Pre-existing Conditions

articleThe U.S. Senate has released its health care bill. The Senate bill appears to maintain current health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions like breast cancer, BUT hidden in the fine print, it takes away full coverage. The bill allows states to waive provisions that could force people like breast cancer survivors to pay much higher costs.

The PA Breast Cancer Coalition reached out to both U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey for their positions on maintaining current health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions. WATCH the clips below for what they had to say to the PBCC:

Senate leadership says it will vote on the health care bill this week. We need YOU to take action NOW.

Contact U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey's office and tell him you've read the fine print. The Senate bill includes state waiver provisions that could lead to devastating health care costs for people with pre-existing conditions like breast cancer. The bill does NOT maintain current health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Contact U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and thank him for fighting to save current health insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Take Action. Save Lives.
