Letter to your PA Senator
Please briefly state why the bill is important. Allude to your own situation, if pertinent, including how long-term treatment has helped you, for example, to go back to work, to school, or just be able to participate in life. Hardships you have experienced getting insurance reimbursements are important. Also, how difficult it is to get a doctor to diagnose/treat you in Pennsylvania is important. DO NOT USE YOUR DOCTOR’S NAME in the letter. People from other states can discuss their difficulty in getting a physician to diagnose/treat also. If you live outside PA and use a doctor in PA, mention that or if you live in PA and go out of state for treatment mention that. Sign name, address, date.
We prefer original letters, but if you cannot write a letter, use the following template:
