On Saturday evening the House of Representatives will vote on health care reform. Now is the time for YOU to make the call!
CALL YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS AT 1-877-264-4226. The switchboard will ask for your home phone number and then direct you to the correct office.
When connected to your Representative’s office, give them your information:
“My name is ____. I live in (city, state). I am your constituent.”
Explain that you want health care reform that gives women and girls access to quality care at an affordable price. You believe health care reform must
- Eliminate Discriminatory Practices Against Women: Insurance companies routinely factor gender into setting premium levels, charging women more than men for identical coverage.
- Ban unfair “Pre-existing Condition” Practices: Women are often denied or excluded from coverage because of their health history.
- Ensure Comprehensive Benefits: Women often choose to forgo necessary heath services because their ‘bare bones’ health plans do not cover benefits that are critical to maintaining their health.
- Make Health Care Affordable: Health care coverage is simply too expensive now. For health reform to be successful, Congress must guarantee that women can afford to purchase and utilize quality health coverage.
Every call makes a difference. Send these talking points to your friends and family – encourage them to make the call.
Every day 14,000 Americans lose their health care.
Don’t Wait. It’s time for you to make the call.
