SSF Supports Petition That Puts Patients First

The SSF has joined with the National Health Council and its members in putting patients first!

The lack of effective health care coverage is one of the most important issues facing our nation. Nearly 50 million Americans have no coverage at all. Many more have coverage that does not provide for their basic health and longterm care needs. The problem is especially acute for Americans with a chronic disease or disability – like Sjögren’s patients and others represented by the National Health Council.

That is why we have joined the National Health Council's Campaign to Put Patients First.

With the National Health Council, we support health care that

  • Covers everyone
  • Curbs costs responsibly
  • Abolishes exclusions for pre-existing conditions
  • Eliminates lifetime caps
  • Ensures long-term and end-of-life care

On behalf of the more than 133 million people with chronic diseases and disabilities and their family caregivers, we urge the Administration and Congress to enact specific solutions that guarantee effective and affordable health and long-term care coverage for all Americans.
