How do you spell "lawsuit relief"? H.R. 1215

Call your U.S. Rep to urge passage of nationwide medical liability reform bill

The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote soon on the Protecting Access to Care Act (H.R. 1215).

This medical liability reform bill includes proven, effective reforms that Illinois doctors and patients have sought for many years.

Federal legislation is the best chance for medical liability reform here in the Prairie State. 

Please urge your congressional representative to support passage of the Protecting Access to Care Act and to accept only those amendments with a proven positive impact on medical liability reforms.

Call your representative NOW.
