Short Take: Online petitions circulated for breast cancer insurance bills

Netizens can sign online petitions supporting congressional hearings on two bills to improve insurance coverage for breast cancer patients. The bills are the Reconstructive Breast Surgery Benefits Act, which would require health insurers to cover reconstructive breast surgery if they already pay for mastectomies, and the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act, which would require insurers to provide at least 48 hours of inpatient hospital care following a mastectomy.
