Make a Difference in Health Policy
Legislation that impacts health care can significantly impact your health benefits plan, affecting what’s covered, where it’s delivered, and how much it costs.
Employers are the nation’s largest purchaser of health insurance, and telling legislators how proposed health policy will likely impact employers and their employees is the single best way to make a difference.
Real stories that share how proposed rules or laws will affect the people who live and work in legislators’ districts can influence what legislators propose and how they vote — now and in the future.
