Sen. Portman: End Your Support for the "Protect Act"

To be delivered to The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Senator Portman is co-sponsoring the "Protect Act" which would scale back protections for people with pre-existing conditions; allow insurance companies to charge women and seniors more; and would bring back policies that don't include essential health care benefits, like maternity care and hospitalizations.

Tell Senator Portman to cut ties with the "Protect Act" and take meaningful action to protect our care from the ongoing sabotage of the Trump Administration.

Petition Background

Republicans’ “Protect Act” gives power back to insurance companies to charge women and older adults more and sell people plans that do not include comprehensive coverage.

Insurance companies would once again be able to refuse to cover essential health benefits, such as hospitalization, mental health, maternity care, and prescription drugs. This puts artificial barriers up for people with pre-existing conditions. For example, someone with cancer may be sold a plan but denied prescription drug coverage. These types of restrictions were the norm pre-ACA, and the “Protect Act” takes us back to the days when your insurance card might have been a really expensive piece of plastic in your wallet.
