Does Rosendale Believe Covering Montanans’ Pre-Existing Conditions is Unconstitutional?

Helena – We already know that wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale supports health insurance plans that are not required to cover pre-existing conditions, and many do not even cover prescription drugs, maternity care, mental health, or substance abuse prevention and treatment.

Insurance Commissioner Rosendale – who rubber-stamped rate hikes of up to 23 percent – also keeps pushing fake solutions like Medi-Share, which isn’t required to cover pre-existing conditions and was banned from Montana over a decade ago for fraud.

Now, the White House is arguing that provisions under the current health care system that protect Americans with pre-existing conditions are unconstitutional. As a reminder, pre-existing conditions include diabetes, asthma and cancer, and the White House’s argument could mean insurers could once again deny people coverage based on their medical history.

So, does Rosendale believe that those protections are unconstitutional and that insurers should be free to deny coverage to Montanans with pre-existing conditions or charge them higher rates?

Montana voters deserve to know where Rosendale stands on policies that would deeply impact their care by ripping away access to coverage from those with pre-existing conditions.
