Dear [Decision Maker],

I write today to urge you to co-sponsor the Accelerating Kids' Access to Care Act (HR 4758 and S 2372). Currently, there are many forms of red tape that increase the time it takes for children covered by Medicaid or CHIP to access specialized care outside of their state. By streamlining the Medicaid provider screening and enrollment process, it would strengthen the ability for kids with complex medical issues to receive life-saving care from physicians that are experts in their field.

Many individuals within the pediatric hydrocephalus community receive care from specialists out of state. Please cosponsor this legislation and help ensure that kids diagnosed with hydrocephalus will not have to deal with these unnecessary burdens.
