Paolino pledges to protect those with pre-existing conditions

These are unprecedented times, says District 17 state Senator Thomas Paolino.

"COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of our daily lives. Health insurance coverage is now more important than ever," he said. "As your senator and a member of the Health and Human Services Committee, I will continue to support protecting patients with pre-existing conditions and the inclusion of children under 26 years of age on their parents' health insurance plan."

Last year, he said, "We eliminated surprise out-of-network billing and joined efforts championed by the AARP to reduce the cost of prescription drugs."

Health care costs "have reached exorbitant levels while deductibles have also risen," he said. "I am running for re-election because I believe you deserve an experienced voice in the state senate to advocate on your behalf as we navigate the COVID crisis together while securing required healthcare benefits for all residents. Thank you, stay well, and I humbly seek your vote on Nov. 3."
