Friday Facts: How the Affordable Care Act is helping Americans with pre-existing health conditions

  • 48 percent to 86 percent of adults between the age of 55 and 64 have some type of pre-existing condition.

  • 15 percent to 30 percent of people in perfectly good health today are likely to develop a pre-existing condition over the next eight years.

  • Starting in 2014, all Americans with a pre-existing condition can no longer be denied coverage.
