Momentum around health care reform is building and the next few weeks provide our nation with an unprecedented opportunity to make critical changes to our broken health care system. Congress is drafting health care reform legislation right now-that's why it is crucial for you to contact your Members of Congress today to let them know that affordable, comprehensive health coverage for everyone-especially children-is important to you.
I urge you to support health coverage legislation that includes the following:
- A national eligibility level of at least 300 percent of the poverty level and the ability to buy in at affordable rates for families above that income level.
- A comprehensive benefit package that allows children to receive all medically necessary services.
- The simplification of the system, including the implementation of processes such as automatic enrollment, and the removal of all bureaucratic barriers so that children can get enrolled and stay enrolled.
