WASHINGTON –American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) President and CEO Susan Neely made the following comments on the bipartisan Living Donor Protection Act introduced today by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA): 

“The Living Donor Protection Act makes certain that no one is denied access to life, disability or long-term care insurance coverage solely because of their selfless act to be a living organ donor. It strikes the right balance between the needs of living organ donors to protect their families’ financial futures and the need for life insurers to underwrite fairly. 

“America's life insurers have long been committed to providing access to financial security for all Americans, regardless of where or how they work, their life stage, or the economic status of their household. That is why we are joining the National Kidney Foundation, the leading kidney patient organization, in supporting this bill and hope it will help more people choose to save a life through organ donation.”
