Protection of Breast Cancer Patients Bill
Once more we have an opportunity to stop ‘Drive Through-Mastecomy’s’. As it stands today insurance companies will not cover a hospital stay, sending women home, only hours after their operations. Senate Bill S.459 and House Bill H.R. 119 known as ‘The Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act’ seeks to allow women a 48 hour hospital stay, forcing the insurance co. to step up.
This has been fought over each year since 1997. The Republican majority never allowed it out of committee for a vote. Please contact your representatives and let them know you support these bills and thank those Republican’s who have been supporting this legislation these past ten years.
