Washington, D.C. – Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today introduced H.R. 8934, the Plan Verification and Fairness Act, legislation that would ensure proper verification is required prior to receiving healthcare coverage under exchange special enrollment periods (SEPs).

Under current law, individuals aren’t required to prove that they qualify for these special enrollment periods (SEPs) before the plan takes effect, leading to higher costs for patients playing by the rules and risk imbalance within exchange markets.

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Patients who experience high cholesterol due to an inherited genetic disorder from one of their parents—heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia— are much more likely than those with average cholesterol levels to have diseases caused by hardening of the arteries, including an accelerated onset of coronary heart disease by up to 30 years, according to new research in the American Heart Association journal Circulation.

The inherited form of high cholesterol—familial hypercholesterolemia—is a genetic disorder that is passed down through families.
