The House is voting next week to take away your rights under the just-upheld health care law, including the more than $1 billion insurers owe us for wasting our money.
We're sending a clear message to Congress that you do want your rights -- and refunds.
Our voided check will let them know that consumers expect insurance companies to be held accountable for how they spend our money under the law, or else pay up.
Send a quick message now ahead of the vote, and we'll also add your name to our 'voided refund check' delivery to Congress.
Let the Affordable Care Act work!
Dear [Decision Maker],
Now that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, I urge you to oppose any effort to block or overturn it so my family has access to fair and decent health coverage. I also ask that you make sure insurance companies follow through on rules to spend less on overhead and more on medical care, so I get more value for my health-care dollar.
Health insurance companies already are starting to return $1.1 billion in refunds to Americans for spending too much on their overhead, CEO salaries and excessive profits, and not enough on our actual medical care.
This Medical Loss Ratio provision under the ACA is starting to bring down skyrocketing insurance costs. It encourages insurers to work smarter and more efficiently, and it means money back in my pocket when they don't.
Overturning or undermining the ACA would put these refunds at risk. The vast majority of Americans want these and other consumer protections, and I expect you to support and implement them so we are no longer at the mercy of the giant health insurance companies.
Please vote NO on any attempt to overturn the Affordable Care Act -- it's time we give it a chance to work!
