Join thousands of Americans in a national call-in to protect your health care.

Call the Senate switchboard toll-free TODAY: 1-800-828-0498. Ask for your Senators' offices and urge them to VOTE NO on S. 1955, the "Health Insurance Marketplace Modernization and Affordability Act."

Despite the tremendous need to make health care more affordable, the Senate is planning to vote next week on S.1955, legislation that would wipe away critical health insurance protections and make health coverage more expensive. In fact, this bill should be called the "Lose Your Health Care Bill."

If S.1955 is adopted, you and your family may no longer have coverage for: · Mammograms· Breast, cervical, colon or prostate cancer screening or treatment · Child Immunizations · Well-child check-ups · Mental health care · Diabetes education and treatment including insulin and test strips Instead of making health care more affordable for those who need it most, S.1955 would wipe away state protections that prevent insurers from charging higher premiums based on health, gender, age – or even where you live.

Americans have much to lose from this bill. ACT NOW! Please urge your Senators to vote NO on S.1955, the "Health Insurance Marketplace Modernization and Affordability Act," when it comes to the full Senate next week.
