MCNP Asking Members to Support PATCH Bill
Sunday, February 25, 2018
The MCNP is asking members to support An Act to Protect Access to Confidential Healthcare (H. 2960/S. 2296) which is going before the Massachusetts House of Representatives for a vote on Wednesday, 2/28/18.
If passed into law, this legislation will establish mechanisms to ensure that when multiple people are on the same insurance plan, confidential health care information is not shared with anyone other than the patient.
There is broad support for the bill, including our many members who treat young adults and those working in college and family health, domestic violence, mental health and substance abuse treatment centers.
Please reach out to your state representative to express your support of the bill, so that Massachusetts patients can have Access to Confidential Healthcare.
We have created a Votervoice campaign, so it will only take a moment.
