Important Legislation Affecting Motorcyclists

This is a very important issue for motorcyclists across the country. We have been set up for a by one of our "Administrations" which was clearly a result of undo influence
from the Insurance Lobby. Your Group Health Care Insurance provider cannot deny you coverage because you ride BUT they can refuse to pay any benefit claim if you are injured in an accident on your bike.

We have an opportunity to correct this injustice RIGHT NOW. There are two bills in Congress (House and Senate versions) to close this loophole. Follow the directions and let your guys in Washington know that there is broad support among their constituents to pass this legislation.

Go to http://www.AMADIRECTLINK.COM

In the left column, top item, click on AMA RAPID RESPONSE CENTER

The next screen will show (4) four ACTION ALERTS. Click on the one for the HOUSE INTRODUCES HEALTH INSURANCE BILL FOR MOTORCYCLISTS.

Use the scroll down bar immediately adjacent to the text and fill in your name and address information. Fill in your name in the box labeled "Your Closing:".

Finally, click on the "Send Message" box. This will go to the
Congressman in your District. It knows who he (she) is from your
address.

Go back to the ACTION ALERTS screen and repeat the process for the one titled "SENATE INTRODUCES HEALTH INSURANCE BILL FOR MOTORCYCLISTS". This will go to your Senators.

Note that there are instructions for editing the AMA text if you care to change anything or add your own comments. If you choose to do so, keep it clean and polite.

I got an e-mail reply back. See below



Dear Erik:

Thank you for contacting my office. I'm always glad when the people of the 14th District of Texas let me know their views on important issues facing Americans.

While I understand your desire to mandate Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) and health insurance plans provide coverage to those who have incur health problems related to recreational activities, I cannot support such mandates for several reasons.

First of all, the government lacks constitutional authority to interfere in the health care market. As you know, I took an oath to uphold the Constitution, an oath which I take very seriously. Nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government given the power to micromanage health care financing.

The Constitution limits the power of the federal government because people are better off when they can care for themselves, instead of having their lives controlled by a strong central government.

Rather than burden the health care system with costly new government mandates, I support measures to return power over health care decisions to the American people by making it easier for Americans to use devices such as Medical Savings Accounts (MSAs). MSAs would allow individuals to choose their own health care and would allow them to profit when they economize in their health care choices. This will provide incentives for health care consumers to shop for the best care at the lowest possible price. I am currently cosponsoring legislation that would expand the number of Americans who can choose MSAs.

Of course, MSAs are only one type of reform. Any system of generous tax credits or deductions would help ensure access to quality health care at a reasonable price. This is because these reforms remove the bureaucrats and place the patient at the center of the health care system. When people have the freedom and responsibility to make their own health care decisions in the free market, the results will inevitably be lower prices and better care for all forms of health services.

Thanks again for writing. Please feel free to contact my office with any questions, comments, or suggestions.

Sincerely,

Ron Paul

That has been a policy of my insurance company for a few years now. They see motorcycles as recreation and not transportation so it is up to them if they want to pay or not. They did pay $1 million to put a rider back together after a bad accident though.
