Does Rosendale Believe Covering Montanans’ Pre-Existing Conditions is Unconstitutional?

Submitted by vsample on Sat, 2018-06-09 09:56

We already know that wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale supports health insurance plans that are not required to cover pre-existing conditions, and many do not even cover prescription drugs, maternity care, mental health, or substance abuse prevention and treatment.

Insurance Commissioner Rosendale – who rubber-stamped rate hikes of up to 23 percent – also keeps pushing fake solutions like Medi-Share, which isn’t required to cover pre-existing conditions and was banned from Montana over a decade ago for fraud.

Now, the White House is arguing that provisions under the current health care system that protect Americans with pre-existing conditions are unconstitutional. As a reminder, pre-existing conditions include diabetes, asthma and cancer, and the White House’s argument could mean insurers could once again deny people coverage based on their medical history.
