Sponsor:    Rep. McSally, Martha [R-AZ-2] (Introduced 04/27/2017)

Brief

“If the American Health Care Act is enacted, effective as if included in the enactment of such Act, section 2701(b)(5)(A)(ii) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 300gg(b)(5)(A)(ii)), as added by subsection (a) of section 136 of the American Health Care Act (relating to permitting States to waive certain ACA requirements to encourage fair health insurance premiums), is amended by striking “1312(d)(3)(D),”.”

The bill makes it so any decisions by states to waive preexisting condition protections and allow insurers to charge those with such conditions more does not apply to Members of Congress and staff.
