As many of you know, United Spinal is one of the leading organizations advocating for access to urology and ostomy supplies with Congressional offices and policymakers to ensure you have the best supplies for your needs (most recently at our annual Roll on Capitol Hill in June).
Are you a user of urological and/or ostomy prosthetics supplies?
If so, you:
• have unique health care needs where your supplies are prescribed by health care professionals, selected, adjusted and fitted, based on your unique situation,
• ostomy and urologic supplies are prosthetics devices that replace an essential bodily function for you and are not one-size-fits-all products,
• without access to the right products and supplies, you could be subjected to the risk of infection, illness and skin damage by limiting your & your doctor’s choice of the product best suited for your unique needs
If you would like to tell us what experiences or problems you are having with access to your needed urology and ostomy supplies, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
United Spinal will send comments to Congressional offices and policymakers summarizing the issues we receive (no identity information included) and we will follow up with you individually if the policy department needs more information.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! LET’S MAKE A DIFFERENCE TOGETHER!
