Oppose Health Reform Proposals that Could Weaken Pre-Existing Condition Protections

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent, I am writing to express my concern with legislation before the House that could weaken protections for pre-existing conditions by allowing higher rates to be charged to people with complex or costly conditions such as type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is an autoimmune disease that destroys the body's ability to produce insulin and is deadly if not monitored and treated throughout each and every day.

I understand that this legislation would allow states to waive a requirement for insurance companies to set their rates based on the costs in their community, thus allowing higher rates to be charged to those with pre-existing conditions and encouraging use of high risk insurance pools that are up to twice as costly as typical coverage. This could have a very negative impact by making the tools to manage diabetes far more costly than they currently are.



Please oppose this legislation.

Thanks for all you do to support the people of our district.

Respectfully,
