Washington, DC - This week, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik co-sponsored the Pre-Existing Conditions Protection Act which she previously co-sponsored in past Congresses. The legislation guarantees access to health insurance coverage, prohibits pre-existing condition benefit exclusions, and bans premium ratings based on health status – reaffirming Congresswoman Stefanik’s commitment to uphold safeguards and protect insurance coverage for North Country residents with pre-existing conditions.

"I will always fight to protect individuals and families with pre-existing health conditions. I have co-sponsored this bill in previous Congresses, and am proud to co-sponsor it again to ensure we are strengthening healthcare coverage for the North Country."
