The Patient Action Network is a way to let your  voice be heard regarding the healthcare reform debate and most recently about Medicare reimbursement rates and the debaucle that will ensue.

With this in mind, I am forwarding this information on to you so that you may have an outlet for action.  Don’t let government just dictate to you.  Become a part of it!



Dear Barbara:

With access to health care for seniors and military families hanging in the balance, what did the U.S. Senate do? They took a vacation.

That’s right. Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D) and Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand (D) left town without addressing a scheduled 21 percent cut to Medicare payments. A cut that threatens to deprive millions of seniors and military families on TRICARE of access to the doctors they depend on.

Tell your members of Congress that it is time to end their mismanagement of these important health care programs, and honor their commitment to military families and older Americans. Please make this phone call today — use our toll-free grassroots hotline at (888) 434-6200.

Visit the Patients’ Action Network to learn more about the issue.

It is long past time for Congress to find a long-term solution that does not create an even bigger problem in the future. Tell them enough is enough!
