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 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.
