The group of Democrats calls on insurers to create a third party board that would review all recissions for evidence of "fraud or material misrepresentation" on the part of the insurance. If the evidence is not there, the recission would be denied.

"Taking these actions would be consistent with your decision to implement consumer protections for individuals under 26 voluntarily," the letter reads. "And would further demonstrate a commitment to reliable coverage for your policyholders."

The letter is signed by House Ways and Means Chair Sander Levin (D-MI), House Energy and Commerce Chair Henry A. Waxman (D-CA), House Education and Labor Chair George Miller (D-CA), House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chair Pete Stark (D-CA), House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Chair Frank Pallone (D-NJ), House Energy and Commerce Oversight Subcommittee Chair Bart Stupak (D-MI), House Energy and Commerce Chairman Emeritus John D. Dingell (D-MI), and House Education and Labor Health Subcommittee Chair Robert Andrews (D-NJ).
