AHCA Coverage Gaps Affecting Pre-Existing Conditions

An estimated 6.3 million adults in 2015 had a pre-existing condition and gap in health coverage that could make them subject to medical underwriting under the American Health Care Act, according to an Issue Brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation. The proposed legislation would allow states to waive the health status component of community rating in the individual market.
