Thank you to the National Elder Economic Security Initiative for this call to action:
Thanks to the hard work of many people around the country, health reform is moving forward fast. In the coming weeks, Congress will decide what will be included in health reform legislation.
Today, Wednesday, May 13th, WOW is joining several groups, including the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations, in sponsoring a call-in day to Congress. We’re asking people to remind their Senators that home and community-based long-term services and supports are an important part of health care.
Today, Wednesday, May 13th, call 1-800-828-0498 and ask to be connected to your Senators. Please remind them that long-term services and supports are an important part of health care and urge them to include those services in the health reform legislation being developed.
Thank you for helping get the word out about this critical issue.
