There is a bill being sent to the House to close a loophole in the medical insurance laws. The loophole is that your insurance carrier may deny you your benefits if you were in a motorcycle accident. There are some other activities such as skiing, horseback riding, etc... involved as well. The AMA has been pushing this pretty hard and has a nice write up about it on their site http://www.ama-cycle.org/news/2004/S432.asp.

Take the time to read this over and click on the AMA Rapid Response Center link. All you have to do is fill in some info and they will email a letter for you to your local Representative. It's quick and easy and may save your a$$.

Motorcyclists unite! Help save our own rights and go to the link that Freakin posted. This is one of the reasons I joined the AMA to help them protect my rights.

I've always had this trouble with scuba diving. Can't get life insurance through some places, always carried extra diving specific health insurance just because of this. Wander if this will help that also?

Thanks Aikata, Stuart and Diver down.

Diver - I would imagine that this could definately help those into scuba and if it does not cover it, it sure can be a model for the scuba industry.

Let's get the word out folks!

I sent it to my congressman. I hate Lamar Smith. He is a douche bag. But it it is the only way I will be heard and hopefully prevent me from being denied health insurance, then I will do it.

Vote against him. Tell your family and friends to do the same. Thats about all you can do to get rid of douche bags.

I did vote against him. I also dont expect him to lose either. Texas is obviously republican and so is the district his constituents live in.

Thanks Drx512 and ******! Let's get more members involved. You do not have to be an AMA member to help support this bill!
