Take Action to End Health Disparities during COVID-19
Tell Congress to address health disparities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Representative Robin Kelly (D-IL) introduced the Ending Health Disparities during COVID-19 Act to address the health inequities exposed and exacerbated by the pandemic. This legislation enhances COVID-19 testing and contact tracing efforts, expands access to health insurance coverage and includes other key provisions to help millions of Americans during this public health crisis, especially those living with diabetes and prediabetes.

Take Action to Expand COVID-19 Testing Now
Tell your Senators to help people with diabetes by co-sponsoring the TRACE Act to direct more COVID-19 testing into underserved communities.
Senator King (I-ME) and Senator Murkowski (R-AK) introduced the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act to enable local organizations to mobilize testing and contact tracing efforts in underserved communities.
Raise Your Voice: COVID-19 Bills
Tell Congress to help people with diabetes by co-sponsoring two bills to provide critical assistance to America’s most impacted communities.
The COVID-19 Testing, Reaching and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act helps local organizations create mobile testing units and conduct door-to-door outreach with special preference for hot spots and underserved communities.
The Affordable Insulin for the COVID-19 Emergency Act eliminates insulin cost-sharing for seniors with diabetes enrolled in Medicare Part D during the COVID-19 emergency.
URGENT: Take Action Now.
Tell Congress to help people living with diabetes in next COVID-19 relief legislation. During this national emergency, we need you to urge Congress to help people living with diabetes by:
Keeping insurance coverage going: Congress must ensure people with diabetes who lose their jobs do not see their health insurance interrupted.
Eliminate co-pays for insulin and other drugs: Seniors are under tremendous financial stress. Congress can and should temporarily waive Medicare co-pays for insulin and other drugs.
Getting testing into underserved communities: Those who are most at-risk—people with diabetes, people of color and other vulnerable communities—are getting the least resources for COVID-19. Congress needs to provide the means to bring COVID-19 tests directly into at-risk communities now.
