Bills H.123 and S.112 need your support!
Vermont is seeing record numbers of confirmed Lyme cases, often with severe impacts. Every state in New England – except Vermont – has now passed legislation that protects patients’ choice, by affirming that physicians treating Lyme are able to use the same professional judgment in treating Lyme disease that they use in treating any other disease.
The Proposed Legislation
protects Vermonters’ access to appropriate healthcare
enables physicians to treat Lyme Disease as they deem appropriate
places no requirements on physicians
In the absence of this legislation, Vermont physicians are often reluctant to diagnose or treat Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, and many Vermonters are finding that they need to go out of state to access Lyme treatment. Patients and doctors will benefit from this legislation immediately. Please support the increasing number of Vermonters suffering from the devastating effects of Lyme disease.
