Insurance Coverage / ACA Lobby Day in Washington DC
« on: February 13, 2009, 08:48:42 AM »
This is only for USA amputees who want better insurance coverage for their prosthetics. We need help from those who have good coverage also. You never know when your coverage could change.

The ACA is sponsoring a Lobby Day for some of us to personally meet with our respective state delegates to the House and Senate. It will be held on March 10 from 9:30AM to 5:00PM in Washington DC. If you can attend you should contact Morgan Sheets (msheets@amputee-coalition.org) at the ACA office in Washington DC. She needs to know how many people will be there and to make sure that appointments are made to meet with the legislators.

If you cannot attend, now would be a great time to write a short note to your state's legislators to make them aware of the pitiful coverage some of us have concerning our prosthetics. You could even send an email to them instead. The staff read all emails. You can bet that if will get noticed. You can find a list of your legislators by visiting one of the following sites:

http://www.house.gov/

http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_info...enators_cfm.cfm

I know that our Reps and Senators are busy dealing with economic issues, but we need to make them aware that we need some attention also.

Get involved!!!! I will be attending as are a few of our other members. Help us help you.
