Pass the HD Parity Act!

Since 2007, the Huntington’s disease community has been working to correct the injustices that have been hurting folks with HD for over 30 years. The Huntington’s Disease Parity Act was first introduced in Congress 8 years ago, with two goals: 1) to make Social Security update disability guidelines for HD which are 30 years out of date, and make it difficult for those with HD to access SSDI and 2) to do away with the harmful, mandatory 2-year Medicare waiting period for folks with HD on Social Security Disability Insurance. With the help of a groundswell of community advocates and folks around the country writing their Members of Congress, we believe that 2016 is the year we will reach the finish line and see the HD Parity Act passed! 


If you want to see these wrongs righted, join the thousands of HD advocates across the country who have worked so hard to get to this point and sign this petition supporting the HD Parity Act (H.R. 842/S. 968)!
