The Lymphedema Treatment Act is a federal bill that aims to improve insurance coverage for the medically necessary, doctor-prescribed compression supplies that are the cornerstone of lymphedema treatment.
2019 was a Historic Year for the Lymphedema Community! Passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act (LTA) in the House of Representatives was a huge milestone. We are now well positioned to pass the LTA in the Senate and get it signed into law during the 116th Congress, which does not end until December of 2020!
While the LTA has garnered fantastic bipartisan support, there is much more work to do!
WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING?
Because passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act is critical! The 3-5 million men, women, and children living with Lymphedema in the U.S. must have insurance coverage for their medically necessary compression supplies.
