Make a Call for Health Care Reform

The AHA has set-up the Hearts for Health Care hotline to help connect you to your legislators, so you can speak up for meaningful health care reform. Simply call 1-877-854-4327 and select 2 to be connected to a live operator. They will patch you right through to your lawmakers.

If you’ve never called Congress before, don’t worry – it’s easy! When a staff member answers your call, you can say:

  • My name is ________ and I am calling from _________.
  • 80 million Americans are living with heart disease, stroke or other cardiovascular disease today and they need health care reform that ensures that health care is accessible, affordable, and adequate.
  • I stand with the American Heart Association and its American Stroke Association division in urging all members of Congress to vote “yes” on meaningful, affordable health care reform THIS year.
  • Thank you for passing this message on to my legislator.

All of us have a very real stake in Congressional decisions about health care reform—and making this quick call can make a big difference!
