PARSIPPANY — Representative Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) voted to protect New Jersey residents living with pre-existing conditions. H.R. 986, the Protecting Americans with Pre-Existing Conditions Act, rescinds guidance issued by the administration that promotes junk insurance plans that lack coverage for pre-existing conditions, limits access to comprehensive coverage, and raises healthcare costs. The bill also prohibits any similar future guidance from being proposed.

“New Jerseyans and their loved ones who live with a pre-existing condition should not have to worry whether or not their health insurance plan will cover them,” said Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill. “We need to strengthen our healthcare system, not weaken protections for our residents, or open the floodgate to junk health insurance plans. The 300,000 residents in my district living with pre-existing conditions deserve no less.”

This vote follows Representative Sherrill’s votes yesterday in favor of two bipartisan bills to lower the price of prescription drugs and to remove barriers to generics coming to market.
