Lymphedema Treatment Act Would Provide a Commonsense Solution to a Fixable Problem

Home Blog Lymphedema Treatment Act Would Provide a Commonsense Solution to a Fixable Problem

Recently, an Op-Ed about the benefits of the Lymphedema Treatment Act was featured in The Hill, a news source widely regarded and circulated with federal legislators. Former Reps. Dave Reichert and Larry Kissell wrote about how the Lymphedema Treatment Act is good policy and good politics. With 451 co-sponsors, 385 in the House and 66 in the Senate, the Lymphedema Treatment Act was the most supported health care bill in the 115th Congress. Kissell first introduced the legislation after he met Heather Ferguson and heard her story as her Congressman in 2009. When Kissell did not return to the legislator, Reichert continued to champion the legislation. They call for the legislation to be passed because it is a commonsense solution to a fixable problem.

This Op-Ed couldn't have been released at a better time since the Lymphedema Treatment Act lobby days were held May 5-7.
