Houlahan Continues To Protect Pennsylvanians’ Health Care

Passes Patient Protection And Affordable Care Enhancement Act

Washington, June 29, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) voted to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act. This comprehensive legislation lowers Americans’ health coverage costs through tax credit expansions, negotiates lower prescription drug prices, expands coverage by funding critical federal and state efforts to increase health coverage enrolment, combats inequity in health coverage faced by communities of color, cracks down on junk plans and strengthens protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

“Since announcing my candidacy for Congress, it has been a priority to protect and enhance health care for those in my community, Commonwealth, and country,” said Houlahan. “Today’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Enhancement Act is another step on the march towards a country where every individual, including those with pre-existing conditions, has access to quality and affordable health care. Especially obvious in a pandemic, it is always the job of Congress to support our country’s health care initiatives, not strip them away. Today’s bill shores up the Affordable Care Act and continues to expand coverage to those who need it most.”
