Pre-Existing Condtion Health Insurance Coverage Is On The Line
20 states are currently suing the federal government over the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
If a judge rules in favor of those states, people with pre-existing medical conditions could lose their individual health insurance coverage, says Lifehacker.
The Justice Department has also declined to defend the law and the pre-existing conditions provision in court.
One Georgetown professor and researcher on health insurance reforms said, "If the courts side with the Administration, the health insurance markets could be pushed into chaos.” According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 27 percent of adults under 65 in the individual market have a pre-existing medical condition that could preclude them from coverage if the ACA is repealed.
