Protect Our Care Bus Tour Makes Indiana Stops

A coalition of groups working to preserve the Affordable Care Act, ACA, has two stops in Indiana on its first nationwide bus tour this week.  

Jessica Hoag, a 23 year-old cancer survivor from Indianapolis is onboard the Protect Our Care bus.  She is worried about Republican efforts to dismantle the ACA, especially as it relates to pre-exisiting conditions.

"People can’t control when they get a disease, or get asthma, it’s not something you can control it just happens in your life," says Hoag.

The group estimates more than 2.7 million Hoosiers have a pre-existing condition.  The bus tour also focuses on efforts to promote so-called junk plans and the reduction of enrollment outreach.

The tour will stop in South Bend on Wednesday.
