 Contact Congress today for people with COPD.
Trisha’s Story, “I Have Lost More Than I Have Gained.”  

 Trisha lives in a competitive bidding area. She has several health issues and relies on home oxygen every night. She was forced to change oxygen providers due to the Medicare competitive bidding program. Since then, her comfort, safety and satisfaction have all deteriorated, and the customer service she receives is almost nonexistent.  

We need you to take action for Trisha today.

H.R. 6490, the  Market Pricing Program Act of 2012, would replace the current bidding program that has caused problems for Trisha.

Just follow the easy steps below to send an email message to your representative asking for support of HR. 6490.

1. Click on the PFQC website and follow the steps below.
2. Enter your ZIP code next to the green arrow at the bottom of the page.
3. Click on the section marked “Action Alert.”
4. Read the letter, add your own words (if you choose to).
5. Enter your information (name and address).
6. Hit “send message.”

 Thank you for your advocacy efforts.
