Join Thousands of Advocates Demanding Action!

Call your Senators and Representatives toll-free:
1-800-828-0498 (thanks to Families USA!).

Tuesday, January 26, has been selected as a National Call-In Day for people with disabilities and older adults to contact their Members of Congress and tell them that healthcare reform should be passed as soon as possible. Members of Congress need to hear from you now about the need to pass real healthcare reform that includes the CLASS Act and Community First Choice Option.

Use the toll-free number above or call the Capitol switchboard at (202-224-3121) to reach the Washington office of your Representative and two Senators. NCIL also recommends that you call their local district offices. Find your Senators and Representative. Every Representative and Senator, of both parties, must hear this message:

“The time is NOW for Congress to pass meaningful healthcare reform that includes the CLASS Act and improvements in Medicaid home and community based services. All Americans deserve meaningful reforms in healthcare and long-term care that are within reach.”

Healthcare reform has taken a dramatic turn over the course of the last week. This is a chance for the grassroots disability community to flex some muscle and tell Congress that reform is still possible and must be achieved. Be a part of the wave that brings reform back and moves Congress to get this done!
