Legislative Action Alert for Congressional HR-6344 (The Simon Crosier Act)

[Washington, DC, February 20, 2024]The Board of Directors of Simon’s Law, a nationwide network of families and professionals empowering parents to advocate for fair and equal access to life-saving medical treatment, calls on all citizens to petition their congressmen to support The Simon Crosier Act.

HR-6344 (The Simon Crosier Act) proposes to amend titles XVII and XIX of the Social Security Act to require providers of services and health maintenance organizations under the Medicare and Medicaid programs to provide for certain policies to be in place relating to do-not-resuscitate orders or similar physician’s orders for unemancipated minors receiving services.

The Simon Crosier Act (HR-6344) is currently waiting for the House Committee On Energy and Commerce (Chair, Honorable Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Washington at 202-225-2006) to mark it up.  Please take a moment to reach out to the Health Subcommittee members (https://clerk.house.gov/committees/IF14), especially Chairman Brett Guthrie (R-Kentucky) at (202) 225-3501, with the following message:

My name is (your name), I am the parent of a child with a life-limiting diagnosis, who is at risk of having resuscitative measures withheld without my consent, with every hospitalization in (your state).  Therefore, I urge you to mark up HR-6344 (The Simon Crosier Act), so that it has the opportunity to move beyond the House Committee On Energy and Commerce to protect my parental right to be included in DNR determinations for my child.
