Fight CRC's campaign for H.R. 4120 - call your reps!

Postby beth568 » Mon Mar 26, 2012 9:35 am

Fight CRC has a campaign today asking us to call our Congressional representatives to ask them to cosponsor H.R. 4120, which would waive coinsurance fees for Medicare patients when they need a biopsy or polyp removal during a colonoscopy. It's a simple provision with bipartisan support. The phone call takes about 2 minutes.

Here's a link to Fight CRC's page with very clear directions about how to make the call: ... 6-615-3375

A very brief explanation on my blog: ... r-the-day/
