I’m not one to try to talk politics here on this web page… I do that during my day at work. But I did want to let anyone know who would be interested about a new bipartisan bill that was introduced in the U.S. Senate on Friday. It was introduced with the support of the Amputee Coalition of America (ACA). The bill is called the “Group Health Plan Prosthetics Parity Act of 2008” and is designed to make sure all health care plans actually make it affordable for amputees to use prosthetics. This has been one of the biggest worries I’ve held deep inside my heart as I think about the long term needs Jordan might have when she gets older. Right now our health care plan has been pretty helpful with payments for her prosthetics. I was really worried about what would happen once she grew out of our health care and she needed to use her own company. Hopefully this will give her access to prosthetics IF she wants to use one. Who knows. I feel a little bit better if this bill moves through.
