S. 648: The Huntington's Disease Parity Act
Take Action! Senate Legislation Introduced!!!!
Amazing News! On March 17, 2011, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D, NY) introduced the Senate Companion to the Huntington's Disease Parity Act of 2011. The bill number for the Huntington's Disease Parity Act in the Senate is S. 648.
Now that we have a bill in the Senate, we need the support of your Senators! Contact your Senators, and ask them to cosponsor S. 648.
The Huntington's Disease Parity Act is important for all people affected by Huntington's disease (HD). If enacted into law, your Senators can make it easier for individuals with HD to receive Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare coverage, dramatically improving the lives of all people affected by HD.

Emailing your Senators is easy, and fast. We have provided you with a pre-written email message to your Senators that can personalize. We encourage you to add your personal story, and why the Huntington's Disease Parity Act is important to you.
Thank you in advance for your support of this effort. Please forward this message to everyone you know who cares about HD, because we want to generate as many emails as possible. As always, don't hesitate to contact me with your questions, comments, or concerns.
