HARTFORD, CT - Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) issued the following statement after Governor Ned Lamont signed a public act expanding health insurance coverage for pre-existing conditions. Under state law, “pre-existing conditions” covered by insurance must be covered regardless of medical advice, diagnosis, care or treatment recommended or received prior to effective coverage.

“As a physician, and as Senate Vice-Chair of the Public Health Committee, I fully support the expansion of coverage of individuals with pre-existing conditions,” said Sen. Anwar. “These new provisions made into law will protect Connecticut residents from Federal changes, ensuring individuals can continue to access healthcare. Its inclusion of short-term policies is key, as they are often active during transition of services; this will ensure any treatments continue during that transition. I applaud my colleagues’ work in making Connecticut a healthier state.”
