Andy Beshear on Health Care
Protections for pre-existing conditions; stop lifetime caps
[As Attorney General], all of the work we do is built on helping people. That's why I've defended health care protections for people with pre-existing conditions and fought to stop lifetime caps for people with conditions like diabetes or
Crohn's disease. I also released a comprehensive health care plan that ensures every Kentuckian can access quality health care and drives down the cost of prescription drugs.

Protect ObamaCare: lives hang in the balance
Attorney General Beshear is taking legal action on behalf of 1.3 million Kentuckians who may lose health care after a federal judge determined ObamaCare to be unconstitutional last week. Beshear announced that he would join 15 other attorneys general
across the country to oppose a Texas judge's ruling last week against the Affordable Care Act, the health care law passed by former President Barack Obama.
"With Kentuckians facing so many needs, we cannot allow a Texas court to strip coverage away
from our Kentucky families," Beshear said in a statement. Beshear said "lives hang in the balance" and that he plans to file a legal challenge. "For so many families it is a matter of life and death," Beshear said. "If Kentuckians understand what is at
stake, then they'll be supportive of us overturning this ruling."
Beshear listed the loss of mandatory coverage for pre-existing conditions, expanded Medicaid, and children being able to stay on a parent's insurance until age 26 among his top concerns.
