While the proposal calls for comprehensive reform, it also stresses that elected officials should preserve and build on the positive elements of the ACA. They should:
- Prohibit insurance companies from denying coverage or charging higher premiums due to preexisting conditions.
- Prohibit lifetime limits for health care costs.
- Prohibit cancellation of coverage for immaterial inaccuracies of reporting on applications.
- Allow parents to include their children on their policies until age 26.
- Require standardized and simplified enrollment and paperwork for health insurance.
