Unequal Access to Treatment=Injustice

It is unjust that Medicare and other insurance companies don’t currently cover the costs of medical care for lymphedema—a common side effect of breast cancer treatment. Left untreated, this painful swelling can worsen over time and cause disability.

Tell Congress to support the Lymphedema Treatment Act, so every woman can get the treatment she needs.

This vital legislation would change Medicare law to cover lymphedema treatment—setting a precedent for other insurers to follow suit. The Lymphedema Treatment Act was recently introduced in the Senate; so NOW is the time to get your legislators to cosponsor this important legislation.

Tell your Congressmembers TODAY that ALL women, regardless of their financial situation, deserve access to comprehensive lymphedema treatment.
