We are very pleased to say that the Ostomy Supplies Bill has now been called up by the Governors office and is now on his desk. All it needs now is for him to sign it into law.
We asked you to write to his office in June and again at the beginning of last month, and we know that a number of you and your friends have done so. However, We are told that it would be good for him to hear from you and your family and friends again now, and this is quite urgent as he only has till September 23rd to sign the Bill into law, or to veto it.
Please help us clear the last hurdle; as before a simple message containing the following should suffice:Please sign into law Assembly Bill A10140 and Senate Bill S7893 that concern insurance coverage for the vital supplies that people who have undergone ostomy surgery must rely on.
The easiest way is to email the message to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also contact the Governor's office by phone (518) 474-8390 or mail:
The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224
In the same time, as a reminder, if you live in New York, and did not sign the petition yet, please do it now, it takes less than a minute and it gives a boost for the campaign.
Even though you might not have an Ostomy B'H, but there so many others out there suffering of Crohn's disease or Ulcerative Colitis who are going through with that struggle, let’s try to help them!
Sign it here Petitioning Governor Cuomo to sign into law NY Ostomy Supplies Coverage Bill and send it to others to sign it as well.
