National Osteoporosis Foundation

HR 2693 Introduced in US House to Protect Access to DXA. Emails Needed.

The National Osteoporosis Foundation together with other members of the Fracture Prevention Coalition have been working on legislation to ensure patient access to osteoporosis care, including the gold standard DXA test.

On May 14th, HR 2693 was introduced in the US House to Protect Access to DXA Bone Density Testing.

This is where you come in.  We need your help urging members of the US House to Co-Sponsor DXA legislation

Since 2007, Medicare payment policy has hindered osteoporosis prevention efforts leading to a sharp decline in the testing and treatment of osteoporosis. Millions fewer women have been tested and for the first time in over 20 years, hip fracture rates have increased. In the meantime, the prevalence of osteoporosis continues to grow.  We are clearly heading in the wrong direction and need to reverse these disturbing trends.
