Take Action

Senate leadership has unveiled legislation to reshape the Affordable Care Act. Their goal is to vote on it before July 4. Let your senators know that it is important that patients:

  • Not lose coverage.
  • Continue to have access to specialty care.
  • Have access to and coverage of preventive services, like life-saving colorectal cancer screenings.    

Contact your member of Congress to let them know that patients need access to quality health insurance and high-quality medical care. 

Time is of the essence, so please contact your senator by calling the Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121. Ask the operator to connect you with the senators from your state.

When you reach your senator’s office let them know the following:

  • Your name and where you are calling from in the state.
  • You would like to urge the senator to oppose any repeal and replace legislation that results in lost coverage, lack of access to specialty care or loss of coverage of preventive services.

AGA will continue to monitor the legislative process and voice our concerns.
