Letter to Senator Capito Regarding Short-Term Limited-Duration Policies

WV CAG joined other advocacy organizations in sending a letter to Senator Capito regarding short-term limited-duration policies and their impact on insurance coverage, premiums, and federal spending. According to a report by the Urban Institute, as a result of repealing the individual mandate and expanding access to these so-called “short-term” plans, millions of people will lose access to comprehensive coverage, or lose coverage altogether, including 38,000 West Virginians, and premiums will likely increase by an average of 18.2 percent nationally, and 20 percent in West Virginia alone, for people who remain in the ACA marketplaces. West Virginians cannot afford this scheme. We need Senator Capito to stand up for our state and stop the never-ending war on health care.
