A Colorado congressman who wants to see the Affordable Care Act (ACA) repealed, has introduced backup legislation to protect consumers with pre-existing conditions.

Rep. Mike Coffman (R) introduced a bill he calls the Guaranteed Health Coverage for Pre-Existing Conditions Act of 2014.

He said it would prohibit the ability of an insurance company to deny coverage based on a pre-existing medical condition in the event that the ACA is repealed.

Coffman says he wants to see the ACA repealed, but wants to retain the consumer protections, as a part of an overall healthcare reform. 

“We can have a patient-centered healthcare system that has the consumer protections that the American people want without the harsh mandates that have caused so many to lose the policies that they wanted to keep or the doctors that they liked,” said Coffman.
