Karen Pollitz, a Senior Fellow at KFF, testified on January 29, 2019, before the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means as part of a hearing on Protecting Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions. Her testimony examines the prevalence of pre-existing conditions, the impact of the Affordable Care Act’s prohibition against medical underwriting and other provisions aimed at stabilizing the insurance risk pool, and the trade-offs involved in relaxing those provisions.
