American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown Supports Efforts to Ensure Health Coverage for Children with Pre-Existing Conditions
In a recent news relsease, AHA's CEO Nancy Brown said, "Too often, our nation’s vulnerable populations face enormous difficulties securing quality and affordable coverage in the health care system. Many children born with congenital heart disease or stroke have been unable to obtain health insurance coverage in the non-group market because they have a pre-existing medical condition. Today, Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius reminded states and insurance companies of their role in ensuring children and their families have health coverage options secured under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
