  In section 204, insert after the header the following new 
subsection:
  (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
          (1) On August 3, 2018, the Administration issued a 
        final rule entitled ``short-term, limited-duration 
        insurance'' (83 Fed. Reg. 38212).
          (2) The final rule dramatically expands the sale and 
        marketing of insurance that--
                  (A) may discriminate against individuals 
                living with preexisting health conditions, 
                including children with complex medical needs 
                and disabilities and their families;
                  (B) lacks important financial protections 
                provided by the Patient Protection and 
                Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148), 
                including the prohibition of annual and 
                lifetime coverage limits and annual out-of-
                pocket limits, that may increase the cost of 
                treatment and cause financial hardship to those 
                requiring medical care, including children with 
                complex medical needs and disabilities and 
                their families; and
                  (C) excludes coverage of essential health 
                benefits including hospitalization, 
                prescription drugs, and other lifesaving care.
          (3) The implementation and enforcement of the final 
        rule weakens critical protections for up to 130 million 
        Americans living with preexisting health conditions and 
        may place a large financial burden on those who enroll 
        in short-term limited-duration insurance, which 
        jeopardizes Americans' access to quality, affordable 
        health insurance.
