Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee, said he would keep health insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions even as he vows to replace President Barack Obama’s signature health-care law on the first day of his presidency.
States worry that, given the high health-care costs of people in the pre-existing condition insurance plan, they might burn through funds from the federal government ahead of schedule if too many people sign up.
Nine states have asked the federal government for more money to make sure their new high-risk pools that provide health coverage for people with pre-existing conditions don’t run out of money before 2014
