Ask Your Representative to Cosponsor The Triple A Study Act: H.R. 8581
We are pleased to announce that Representatives G.K. Butterfield (D-NC-01) and Brett Guthrie (R-KY-02) have introduced the Access to Assistive Technology and Devices for Americans Study Act (or Triple A Study Act), H.R. 8581, in the House of Representatives!  It will identify the best care practices for people living with limb loss or limb difference so they can be replicated across health systems, which will improve health outcomes for our community.

Please ask your Representative to cosponsor this important legislation. 
 
H.R. 8581 is the companion bill to the legislation introduced by Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Tammy Duckworth (D-IL). As you may know, legislation needs to pass both chambers of Congress, so having the Triple A Study Act introduced in the Senate and House shows strong support for our policy priorities and is an important step toward final passage. 

What does this bill do? The Triple A Study Act directs the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to study barriers to care for assistive technologies, including prosthetic devices, and evaluate how those affect patient outcomes by comparing results across Medicare, the VA, and private insurers.  It examines specific challenges, including the affordability of devices, how often people are denied coverage, and if patients can return to work. This analysis will help us improve access to care and health outcomes for our community. 

Here’s how you can help: ask your Representative to cosponsor H.R. 8581 to help the limb loss and limb difference our community! Our simple, online form on the right-hand side of this page makes it easy, and there is plenty of room for you to share your personal story.

We’re grateful to Representatives Butterfield and Guthrie for their leadership on behalf of our community, and, with your help, we can get this bill across the finish line and signed into law!
