Congresswoman McBath is a two-time breast cancer survivor. After facing her own mortality twice, she understands that when someone is sick, the last thing on their mind should be hospital bills. The Congresswoman’s experiences in our health care system drive her commitment to making sure all Americans have access to quality, affordable health care. Rep. McBath will work to expand access to affordable health insurance, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, and protect those with preexisting conditions. Rep. McBath joined her colleagues in introducing the Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions & Making Health Care More Affordable Act of 2019, a bill to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions and lower health care costs. The bill included language from the MORE Health Education Act – a separate bill Rep. McBath introduced with Reps. Lisa Blunt Rochester (DE-AL), Kathy Castor (FL-14), and Dan Kildee (MI-5), in February. This legislation would reverse funding cuts to Affordable Care Act education, marketing, and outreach efforts and would assist providers and navigators in educating Americans about open enrollment dates, coverage options, and financial support available to the public.
