Hi everyone Ė
We have been contacted by two different news sources Ė
looking to speak to clients on specific situations:
1) a client who
is currently in the two-year waiting period
a. Have low
income, but not poor enough to
qualify for Medicaid
b. A person of
color if at all possible (hard to determine sometimes if you havenít met
them face to face)
c. The person
can be from anywhere in the country, but they want to photograph and/or
videotape them, so we will need to find out if they are comfortable with that.
2) Apparently, some
oxygen providers are sending letters to their clients that are somewhat threatening (raising the prospect of their
not getting their equipment) but
also encouraging them to support this bill. A national cable TV network
is looking to interview someone who
has received such a letter. Do you know anyone who has seen such a letter?
a) this person must be willing to be on national TV.
If you have a client who fits this description, please send me their information as soon as possible so we can
connect him/her to the reporter.
We donít have any clients in our database who fit
these descriptions so we are reaching out to you all for help.
