WLSFA CALL TO ACTION!
Yes you can make a difference!As many of you know I, Antonia Jean Namnath was invited by the Obesity Action Coalition to go to our nations capitol to talk with Senators and Members of Congress about the issue of obesity and the importance of medical treatment of obesity as an option for all Americans! Today I want ALL OF YOU to help us make this a reality! It is simple really! Just follow this link http://capwiz.com/obesityaction/home/ and follow the instructions. By contacting your legislators, each one of you add to the chorus of people educating lawmakers about the real need to include medical treatment in the “Essential Benefits Package” Click HERE to read more about what the Essential Care Package is and why it is SO IMPORTANT to have WLS as part of it’s language!
As the WSLFA works hard to grant surgery to those denied access, you can work hard to change the reality that people who buy their own health insurance are NEVER COVERED EVER for weight loss surgery! People who work for small employers are rarely covered and insurance coverage for WLS is the EXCEPTION not the RULE! Seventeen people spent time on Capitol Hill on June 20th, to raise awareness for this issue. Lets give them a few THOUSAND messages from people who are living healthy lives because of weight loss surgery! We are only asking for the SAME BENEFITS all Federal workers enjoy! I think that puts it into perspective!
