Show Your Support for House Bill HR2461
Date: May 12, 2016
Please join us in letting Congress know that we need their support to improve the lives of current and future osteoporosis patients, and to save millions of dollars in healthcare expenses. Click here to submit a letter asking for support on a Bill that, if passed, will improve the lives of many people in the US.
Osteoporosis is prevalent, deadly and costly. Diagnosis by DXA, a bone mass measurement tool, is accurate, inexpensive, and effective and osteoporosis treatment is only dollars each month. However, Medicare cuts are dismantling the osteoporosis prevention model by making DXA unavailable to current and future osteoporosis patients by reducing the reimbursement to lower than it costs to conduct the test. A House Bill (HR2461) to improve access to and utilization of bone mass measurement benefits is now at the point where it needs a lead sponsor in the Senate. To get support in the Senate, we need your help to let your Senator know that this issue matters to your Senator's constituents.
