As governor of Massachusetts, Romney signed a health reform law which
included protections against people with pre-existing conditions being
denied health coverage or being charged higher prices.
Fehrnstrom explained that Romney supports giving states power to
determine what plan best suits their local needs, but also supports a
guarantee of coverage for those who, absent legislation, might be denied
insurance or reach coverage limits, an aim of Obama's legislation.
"The governor believes that those who have continuous coverage should
not be dropped, if they change plans and have a pre-existing condition.
But states are well situated to manage these issues," he said.
Romney has said in recent interviews that coverage for individuals with
pre-existing conditions would be part of his plans.
"My plan is to help bring down the cost of this extraordinary health
care inflation, and so instead of putting in place what's affectionately
known as Obamacare, I would repeal that and replace that with measures
that are designed to help bring down the cost of health insurance and
make sure at the same time people have access to health care,
preexisting conditions are able to be covered," he said on "Live with
Kelly and Michael" in September.
And in an interview for "Meet the Press," Romney said "I'm not getting
rid of all of healthcare reform," specifically naming pre-existing
conditions, coverage for "family up to whatever age they might like,"
and reform the law which lets companies buy insurance for their
employees pre-tax, a benefit not granted to people shopping individually.
Romney also said an individual mandate that many or all people obtain
health coverage is not necessary to implement coverage of pre-existing
conditions and extend coverage of young adults under their families' plans
