Out Now! #IAmAPreExistingCondition Video with Rooted in Rights!

NCIL is excited to announce the release of our new #IAmAPreExistingCondition video in partnership with Rooted in Rights! This video showcases the real stories of real people with pre-existing conditions who will be harmed if the American Health Care Act (AHCA) is passed into law.

Watch the video, and then contact your Senators to tell them to vote NO on the AHCA! Don’t forget to donate to NCIL so that we can keep advocating for community living for all!

Thanks to everyone who submitted a video, and a special thanks to our supporters:

Together, we can make sure the voices of the one in four Americans with pre-existing conditions are heard!


  1. Elizabeth Seabolt says

    I am extremely concerned about any law or legislation that prevents folks with existing health problems from retaining the same level of benefits under a new “umbrella” of healthcare as are available to “new subscribers/patients”. It’s quite apparent to me that the patients (people) intended to be served are all “pre-existing” and the actual new healthcare plan shoould then apply to all. I pray this is addressed immediately and corrected to reflect our compassion and concern for our citizens who are at serious disadvantage in our society already… under the best of circumstances.
