FACT CHECK:

Rob Woodall’s Record oN Pre-Existing Conditions

 

Recently, my opponent claimed that he voted to permanently protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions. This is false.

Here are the facts:

Republicans nationwide have been claiming to have protected coverage for pre-existing conditions, however, their claims have been debunked. Woodall claims in a recent mail piece to have “voted for legislation to permanently protect pre-existing conditions.”

This is false; Woodall has not voted to protect coverage for pre-existing conditions.

Last year, Woodall voted for the American Health Care Act, which would have gutted protections for pre-existing conditions by removing the provision that caps the amount insurance companies can charge for coverage.

FACT: Woodall voted 17 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act and end protections for patients with pre-existing conditions.
