Alaska Health Care Policy Leaders to Discuss Protections for Pre-Existing Conditions

Rep Ivy Spohnholz

Anchorage – Federal protections for patients with preexisting health conditions have been recently threatened on multiple levels. A rollback of these protections would have serious negative impacts on the Alaska economy and limit access to medical care for more than a quarter of all Alaskans.

On Friday June 22nd, lawmakers, state government officials, medical professionals, and patients will hold a joint press conference to discuss what potential changes would mean for Alaska.

Speakers will be available to answer questions following initial presentations.
