Elissa Slotkin Claims Mike Bishop Voted Against Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions
Under the American Health Care Act (AHCA), insurance companies cannot deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions – yet Elissa Slotkin continues to lie about Mike Bishop’s record. The AHCA states:
Sec. 137 of H.R. 1628
“Nothing in this Act shall be construed as permitting health insurance issuers to limit access to health coverage for individuals with preexisting conditions.”
Under the bill, health status cannot affect premiums, unless a state asks for and receives a waiver—a condition of which is the state having other protections in place for those with pre-existing conditions. To obtain a waiver, states would have to establish programs to serve people with pre-existing conditions. No matter what, insurance companies cannot deny coverage based on pre-existing conditions.
Further, Mike Bishop is an original cosponsor of H.R. 1121, the Pre-existing Conditions Protection Act. This bill does exactly what the title says: it would reaffirm guaranteed health care access, ensure that enrollees cannot have benefits excluded from a plan due to a pre-existing condition, and ensure that patients will not pay more based on their health care status.

As reported in the Detroit News, “Stu Sandler, a spokesperson for the Bishop campaign pointed to online photos from late August that show Slotkin at the same California fundraiser as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.”
Slotkin fundraised with Pelosi in California to pay for these ads and Pelosi has funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Washington DC, New York and California to Elissa Slotkin.
