Hello, my name is JulieAnn Chavez and I am the leader for Illinois Senate Bill 2516. First, I would like to update all of you on SB2516. The bill is currently out of insurance committee for the time being. Thank you to all of you for calling, writing, and sending postcards to your Senators. Your diligent efforts have gained the attention of the legislators in the Capitol. However, our work is far from over and we MUST continue to pressure the Senators to keep SB2516 alive and moving through the process of becoming law.
Two friends of mine contributed their talents that have gained the attention of many! Patrick Hughes interviewed Margaret regarding her experience of purchasing her hearing aids. Margaret was appalled when she learned that her hearing aids were not covered by insurance. Margaret used Viagra as an example of something that is covered. Karen Putz, who is the author of Chicago Moms Blog, wrote an article relating to Patrick’s video.
