Upton Introduces Bill To Protect Current Health Plans



Congressman Fred Upton is pushing a new bill to try to protect Americans from losing their health insurance plan as a direct result of the Affordable Care Act.

Listen:



Upton introduced the legislation this week, saying the President sold the healthcare reform on the premise that if you liked your current plan, you could keep it. Companies have started to issue cancelation notices and send employees to the health insurance marketplaces due to increased costs. The marketplace website, healthcare.gov, is under fire for being unreliable and consistently crashing. Upton's bill would allow health care plans available today on the individual market to continue to be offered so Americans have the option to keep what they have if they like it. The bill also ensures that Americans maintaining their health care plan would not face a penalty under the Affordable Care Act.
