Call Congress in Support of H.R. 4120
 
 

Seniors’ access to a screening colonoscopy is at risk and YOU can help!

We need you to call Congress and urge your Representative to support H.R. 4120!

Call 1-866-615-3375. At the prompt, enter your ZIP code and you will be directly connected to your Representative – at no cost to you.

When you reach your Representative’s office, simply say:

  • Your name and where you live
  • Please cosponsor H.R. 4120, the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act of 2012
  • Because Medicare beneficiaries should not be subject to unexpected coinsurance payments for colonoscopy screening
H.R. 4120, the Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act of 2012, will fix a regulation that requires Medicare beneficiaries to pay coinsurance when their screening colonoscopy involves the removal of a polyp. The current policy can cost patients $100 to $300 and serve as a deterrent to screening.

 

We need cosponsors for this legislation if it is to pass into law & YOU can help! Your call will take two minutes of your time, but could save countless lives. Please take action and urge your friends and families to do the same!

1-866-615-3375 

 Thank you to our partners for their support and advocacy!
