Progress and shortfalls in proposed pre-existing conditions legislation

 The Wisconsin Legislature supports the idea of pre-existing medical condition protection for health insurance coverage.  Lawmakers, however, struggle to find the most effective way to do that.  Republican State Senator Andre Jacque sponsored pre-existing condition legislation when he was in the state assembly.  He's now sponsoring similar legislation in the upper chamber. Based on responses from lawmakers of both parties, he believes a solution is closer.



Democratic State Senator Dave Hansen says the provisions of that type of bill still don't go far enough. Hansen says any bill should not include lifetime caps on benefits.



Governor Tony Evers has also entered the pre-existing condition protection debate through executive orders to study the expansion of Obamacare and protections for pre-existing conditions.
