The House of Representatives will consider H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act, next week. The Keep Your Health Plan Act was introduced by Energy and Commerce Chairman Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, and has been cosponsored by more than 130 members. The bill would allow health plans currently available on the individual market to continue next year, providing Americans the opportunity to continue to enroll in those plans without penalty under the health care law. 

“Folks in Michigan and across the country have been told that, despite the President’s oft-repeated promise, they are losing their health care plans and access to their doctors because of the health care law,” said Upton. “The anxiety directly caused by the law’s broken promises is flatly wrong, and this bill serves to ease those concerns and provide choices to the American people. Health care should be about providing peace of mind – this bill does just that.”  

The House is expected to vote on the bill on Friday, November 15.
