Regardless, it's the right thing to do. Someone who was born with, say Diabetes, should not be penalized for having a disease that they did nothing to get. They should get, and be able to keep and pay the same amount for, the same insurance that someone who's been more fortunate in their lives with zero medical conditions, can get.
The reason the ACA hasn't worked thus far (one problem anyway), is that the ACA was designed to get EVERYONE (healthy and unhealthy) into the market to help offset those costs. This didn't (or isn't) happening at a fast enough pace to cover the costs of caring for those with health issues, who are in the market place. This is causing insurance companies to pull out of the market, creating a situation that, honestly, the congressional members should have predicted occurring, and writing legislation to prevent that from occurring.
There are a lot of flaws, but I hope at the end of the day (for my SONS and for everyone with a pre-existing condition) that when they get this resolved, that the 3 things we all think are important, are still included in the coverage. I have 3 sons with pre-existing conditions. One had cancer when he was 1 year old. One is autistic, and Liam has Diabetes.
