thomas_videorndHow important is health care reform to you? As necessary as having access to adequate and affordable health care coverage when and where you need it? As important as receiving the health care support and services that will allow you or a loved one to remain at home and in your community?

United Spinal Association believes that national health care reform is important to all Americans with disabilities and chronic conditions.

We believe that the present system of rationed health care has failed Americans. We believe that all Americans should have the option of living and aging in their own homes and communities, and we know with certainty that together we can make these things happen.

Now more than ever, as Congress is debating health care reform, you are needed. Call your Senators and Representative and urge them to enact health care reform now.

Major proposals in the House and Senate have provisions in common that will make quality, affordable health coverage far more available to people with disabilities and chronic conditions.

New provisions such as the Class Act (Community Living Assistance Services and Supports) would create a national, voluntary disability insurance program under which all employees are automatically enrolled, and which would provide benefits based on the level of disability, to purchase nonmedical services and supports that are needed to maintain community living and independence.

We presently have a rare opportunity to influence and change our health care system. Please don’t let this opportunity pass. Take action now.
