Call your U.S. Congressmen and Senators to let them know how you feel about health insurance!

Do you think that health insurance companies should be able to refuse coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions such as cancer or heart disease, or complications from a defective implant?  That is what will happen if Congress repeals the Affordable Care Act without replacing it with something at least as good.  If you want the Affordable Care Act to stay in place until it is replaced, please take 5 minutes to make this call!

When you call a Congressional office, start by saying who you are.  If you are a constituent, say so.  If you aren’t, don’t say so.  If you are a member of an organization or community that the Congressman or Senator might care about, say so.

Call the Capitol Switchboard at 202 225-3121 and ask for the Congressional office you’re calling (e.g. Senator Jones’ office).  Ask to speak to the Health L.A. (legislative assistant).

Hi, my name is [FIRST LAST NAME], and I am a [constituent (and/or member of ORGANIZATION)]. I’m calling to urge your boss to oppose repealing the Affordable Care Act unless it is replaced at exactly the same time with something better.
