READER'S EDITORIAL: PROTECT AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE COVERAGE FOR PATIENTS WITH CELIAC DISEASE AND GLUTEN SENSITIVITY

 

By Patricia Brower, San Diego

February 8, 2017 (San Diego) - I am reaching out to you today on behalf of the millions of patients with celiac disease, non-celiac wheat/gluten sensitivity, and other autoimmune diseases. I am deeply concerned about the possible removal of key protections in current law that guarantee access to comprehensive and affordable insurance coverage for patients with pre-existing health conditions. As Congress begins work to replace the Affordable Care Act, we are encouraged by the recognition that affordable protection for patients should be retained.
