NFED Advocacy Day

September 18 - September 19

The National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED) is hosting Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill to advocate for the Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act (ELSA) to federal legislators in Washington, D.C.

ELSA is bipartisan legislation that would require a group health plan, and a health insurance issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage, to provide coverage for outpatient and inpatient items and services related to the diagnosis and treatment of a congenital anomaly or birth defect, including any medically necessary item or service to achieve normal body functioning and clarifies coverage for adjunctive dental, orthodontic, or prosthodontic support.

Individuals representing congenital anomalies that would benefit from the passage of ELSA, as well as students, health care providers, researchers, etc., are welcome to join us to share how ELSA would make a positive impact. Legislators need to hear the stories of constituents from their district, so we need individuals from all 50 states to be represented on the Hill this September 18-19.
