Members Asked to Take Action to Support Obesity Coverage

ADA has partnered with the Obesity Society, Obesity Action Coalition and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery to advocate for inclusion of obesity treatment services. ADA members are asked to contact their members of Congress and urge them to sign a letter from Rep. Ed Towns (D.-N.Y.) to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, asking that comprehensive obesity treatment services be included in the essential benefits package.

ADA partners at the Obesity Action Coalition have provided an easy way to reach elected officials through the legislative action center. Members can add their zip code, state and address and a standardized message will go to Capitol Hill. Members can also add their own personalized comments.

To date, the following Representatives have signed onto Rep. Towns' letter: Corrine Brown (D.-Fla.), Yvette D. Clarke (D.-N.Y.), Danny K. Davis (D.-Ill.), Marcia L. Fudge (D.-Ohio), Charles Gonzalez (D.-Texas), Raul M. Grijalva (D.-Ariz.), Jesse Jackson Jr. (D.-Ill.), Barbara Lee (D.-Calif.), Gregory Meeks (D.-N.Y.), James P. Moran (D.-Va.), Donald Payne (D.-N.J.), Charles Rangel (D.-N.Y.) and Laura Richardson (D.-Calif.).
