Comments
DRW provided informational comments regarding the impact AB 1 might have on people with disabilities. Although it might protect individuals with pre-existing conditions from blatant discrimination, it lacks additional protections offered by the ACA.

Comments
AB 1 would only help a very small portion of the people who have benefited from the ACA. It could do more harm than good if it serves as an excuse for Congressional repeal of the ACA or for continuing the court challenge of the law’s validity.

Comments
We are cautious about any bill that focuses narrowly on one aspect of the ACA. Without the full protections of ACA, this legislation alone would not ensure premiums that are affordable for all Wisconsin individuals and families.
