Stabilize health insurance markets

The recent announcement of bipartisan legislation to help stabilize the health insurance markets, while also providing protection for pre-existing conditions, is an important step forward in the ongoing health care debate.

We applaud Sens. Alexander and Murray for their leadership on the issue and strongly encourage Sen. Cruz to co-sponsor this bill.

It is imperative that the health insurance markets are stabilized while also ensuring quality health insurance is affordable and available to all.

Additionally, as the proposal makes its way through the legislative process, we call on our Sen. Cruz to protect the hundreds of thousands of Texans suffering from lung disease by protecting pre-existing condition coverage.

The American Lung Association supports this effort and looks forward to working with Sen. Cruz to ensure that all Texans have affordable, quality health insurance.

Holly Motteram,
