Call Congress to Oppose National Patient ID Amendment

Call Congress to Oppose National Patient ID Amendment

Congress is voting today, July 30, on an appropriations amendment to lift the 20-year ban on a National Patient ID for all Americans. Called a Unique Patient Identifier, the UPI would combine all of your private information, creating a master key that would open the door to every American’s medical, financial and other private data. Each American would be issued a single number. Contact your member of the U.S. House of Representatives today!
