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.
