Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session

Subject: Maintaining Access to Preventive Health Care
Today, a judge in Texas struck down part of the Affordable Care Act that gave Americans access to no-cost or low-cost preventive health care.
If appeals are unsuccessful, millions of Pennsylvanians could lose access to potentially life-saving preventive health care, such as cancer screenings, depression and anxiety screenings, multiple vaccines, and annual well-woman visits.
I believe every Pennsylvanian should have access to life-saving preventive health care without having to pay a copay, coinsurance, or deductible. That is why I will be introducing legislation that requires health insurers to cover preventive health care services without cost-sharing. This will protect Pennsylvanians regardless of what the federal courts do.
Ensuring access to preventive health care just makes sense—preventive care saves lives and money. Please join me in preserving access to vital health care by supporting this legislation.

Introduced as HB1050
