Action Alert: Ask Your Member of Congress to Cosponsor the New Truth and Transparency Legislation

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

On January 26, Rep. John Sullivan (R-OK) and David Scott (D-GA) introduced H.R. 451, the "Healthcare Truth and Transparency Act of 2011." This legislation would provide consumers and patients more information in this confusing health care marketplace. Right now, patients lack information about the wide variety of individuals who work in health care settings, and they are confused by the increasing ambiguity of health care provider-related advertising, marketing and degree titles. Precious health care dollars are being wasted on poor and uninformed health care choices by consumers.

Click here to access call instructions and talking points.

Currently, there is little "transparency" associated with the most fundamental and important component of health care delivery – the many health professionals who interface with patients each day. H.R. 451 would significantly advance patient empowerment and prudent expenditure of health care dollars by enhancing information flow to patients and addressing the lack of clarity in health care provider advertisements, marketing and self-identification.

Please take action today and call your member of Congress to cosponsor H.R. 451
