Roundtable to discuss 2020 election, pre-existing conditions and healthcare
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will host a roundtable discussion about the 2020 election, pre-existing conditions and access to healthcare on Friday, Nov. 6, at 11:45 a.m. on WebEx.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), up to 25 million non-elderly Americans with a pre-existing condition are uninsured. As of 2014, under the ACA these Americans cannot be denied coverage, be charged significantly higher premiums, be subjected to an extended waiting period or have their benefits curtailed by insurance companies.
How will this all change after the 2020 election? This round-table will begin with a brief overview of the topic and encourage conversations regarding how the outcome of the 2020 election will impact access to health care for millions Americans with pre-existing conditions. Please join for a lively conversation that will explore what it means to have a pre-existing medical condition in post-election America.
The moderator for this roundtable will be Dr. Judith Drew, an assistant professor and graduate program director in the Department of Counseling, Leadership and Expressive Arts.
