ICYMI: Guthrie Supports Bill to Protect Patients with Pre-Existing Conditions

Washington, February 9, 2021 | S.K. Bowen (202-225-3501)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Brett Guthrie (KY-02), Republican Leader of the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee, supported legislation introduced last week to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.

Guthrie joined the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act of 2021, which was introduced by Energy and Commerce Committee Republican Leader Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), as an original cosponsor.

“One of my first priorities in health care this Congress is the same as last Congress – protecting patients with pre-existing conditions,” said Guthrie. “Kentuckians and all Americans across the country living with pre-existing health conditions should not have to worry about a health condition impacting their coverage to quality health care. I’m proud to support the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act to ensure benefits are not denied and health insurance premiums do not increase because of a pre-existing health condition. I will continue to fight in Congress until patients with pre-existing conditions have protections and the certainty they need and deserve.”
