Last month we asked people to support us, along with other patient organizations, in signing an online petition expressing concern over the US HHS' December 16 Essential Health Benefits bulletin. Collectively we were able to get over 2,700 signatures that were sent to Secretary Sebelius. 

The IPPF Forums, Facebook fan page, and Email Discussion Group continue to be excellent sources of information and support. If you have a question, ask there, and if you have answers, please reply! 

Here are some IPPF Forum postings that could use YOUR expert advice:
