Please take a moment to call Congress and support the major health care reform that will occur this summer.
Thank you in advance for your time.
The Congress will vote on healthcare legislation soon. Please join with President Obama to win quality, affordable healthcare we all can count on in 2009.
Call Senator Specter toll-free Monday through Friday between 9 am and 6 pm at 1-888-436-8427. Urge him to support President Obama’s healthcare plan with a public plan choice (info below).
A Public Health Insurance Plan Option – What is it?
A public health insurance plan option is a key element of healthcare reform proposals from President Obama and leading members of Congress. Individuals could keep their private insurance or join a new public plan.
The new public health insurance plan would be established by the federal government and available to individuals nationwide. It would offer comprehensive benefits and broad access to providers. Individuals’ premiums would be affordable and based on their income. No one would be denied because of pre-existing conditions. Its overhead costs would be signficantly lower than private insurance, which includes profit, advertising and administration.
The plan would be designed to slow the growth in medical costs, inject competition into the private health insurance market, foster payment and delivery system reforms, remedy disparities in access to care and guarantee that high-quality, affordable coverage will be there for individuals and families no matter what happens to their jobs or their health.
