HR2820 National Call Day - Join Us!

Wednesday, September 26th is National Call Day in support of HR2820, the Reconstructive Surgery Act of 2007!

We are asking everyone with a telephone to call their US Representative in support of HR2820 on Wednesday, September 26th. Many times insurance companies and HMOs label craniofacial care as “cosmetic” or “dental” in nature and deny coverage for these or other reasons. HR2820 requires insurance companies and HMOs to pay for medically-necessary care for patients of all ages.

Please make a call and ask family and friends to join this effort, as well.

** On Monday and Tuesday, September 24th and 25th contact CCA at (800) 535-3643 to get your US Representative’s phone number, or look it up by using your zip code on this website
(see the Capitol Hill graphic in the right-hand column).

** Call your Congressman between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday, September 26th.

** Be sure to mention that you are calling from the Representative’s district. Please tell them your hometown.

** Ask the Congressman to support the Reconstructive Surgery Act of 2007 by co-sponsoring HR2820, legislation requiring insurance companies and HMOs to cover medically-necessary craniofacial treatment.

** Finally, emphasize that many people in your state are counting on his/her support on this issue.

Thank you for your continued support!
