Urge Your Senator to Vote NO on S. 1955
The U.S. Senate is poised to pass legislation that would undermine important patient protections at the state level. S. 1955, the Health Insurance Marketplace Modernization and Affordability Act, would allow small business to bypass state insurance requirements, and would leave their employees without access to critical vision care.
Many state laws require insurance companies to cover vision services such as eye exams, eye glasses, vision screenings, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy treatments, as well as other important services. If S. 1955 becomes law, however, these important protections will be lost.
Please urge your Senator to vote against this legislation. Click here to send a letter: http://capwiz.com/preventblindness/issues/alert/?alertid=8740236
