Despite their life-saving benefits, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screenings are currently covered by Medicare for only a small subset of those at-risk. Visit the GovTrack website for more information about the proposed Congressional bill that will broaden coverage for at-risk Medicare recipients.
If you or a loved-one is at risk for AAA, consider contacting your Congressperson to ask for their support of H.R. 1213 – a bill that will broaden life-saving screenings for those at risk for AAA. By working together, we can stop this silent killer.
