Fight Colorectal Cancer, the Prevent Cancer Foundation, and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy have partnered to host the 2012 Congressional Call In Days, March 26-30th.
Every call matters. You can help support our 2012 legislative priorities by making one simple call! Our Congressional Call In event will be focused on reducing barriers to colonoscopy screening by supporting H.R. 4120, the ‘‘Removing Barriers to Colorectal Cancer Screening Act of 2012”. The bill would waive coinsurance under Medicare for colorectal cancer screening tests, regardless of whatever surgical measures might occur. Colorectal screening is covered under Medicare, but if a Medicare patient undergoes a screening in which a polyp is removed, that individual is required to pay a coinsurance of $100 to $300!
Please call 1-866-615-3375. Once you call, you will then be connected to your US Representative. We need cosponsors for this legislation if it is to pass into law! What do you say? Tell them that you support H. R. 4120 and you want them to cosponsor this bill.
