Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) is working on an amendment to the House GOP’s ObamaCare replacement bill aimed at addressing his concerns about protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
The new changes being considered, confirmed by a House GOP aide, come a day after Upton made waves by announcing that he could not support the bill in its current form because it weakened protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
GOP leaders are now looking at changes to get the bill over the finish line as they face pressure from the administration to call a vote.
Upton’s new amendment would add $8 billion over five years to help people with pre-existing conditions afford their premiums.
