ACTION Alert needed for Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act

Information provided by an MS Advocate
Right now we need help alerting our members of congress about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and how it affects those of us with M.S. This bill protects people living with MS and other pre-existing conditions, as well as removing lifetime and yearly insurance caps for those hit by sudden and expensive health costs.
One of the protections contained in the legislation is that it bans charging women higher health premiums then men. It also protects all Americans by limiting out of pocket expenses. Please contact your members of congress and ask them to keep important protections in place for those of us with MS. If you don't know who they are you can easily look them up by zip code. A short personal story can make a difference and every contact counts.
You can make an even greater impact by calling.
You can contact their offices by calling 202-224-3121
and pressing “1” for the U.S. Senate and “2” for the House of Representatives.
Tell them not to repeal the ACA unless or until they have something in place that includes the important points discussed above.
Please take a few moments to help us help ourselves!
