Important: Legislative Bill to stop health ins. on bikes!!

Important: Legislative Bill to close loophole on health ins for motorcyclists

This is a very important issue for motorcyclists across the country. We have been set up for a screwing 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. Select "HEALTH" at the end.

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 never knew, that is so strongly messed up that they could sleep at night if they refused ANY of us coverage if we was injured from any recreational activity. But I have a feeling, because this is spreading like cancer over the internet that every state will cancel this so called loophole. Lets hope we never have to use our insurance for such reasons, but lets make sure we have the right to if needed.

Thumbs up done

this is important to me and should be to all.

heres a post from another forum under the same title :

yeah, my buddy Craig just went through the whole thing. laid his bike down in a curve @ 80mph without his gloves, the tip of his finger brushed the pavement and took 1/4 inch off. He said he thought his injury would be fine, but because he knew he had insurance, he agreed to allow the ambulance to take him the the ER to get checked out. After receiving the ambulance and eroom bill for $1800, he contacted his insurance company only to find out he wasnt covered because he was riding. They referred him to the line item in his policy where it was stated. He was suprised, disappointed, then angry.

He said he wasnt wearing his gloves because they were too big and bunched up while doing wheelies doh
