Health Care

The Staffers Handling Health Care for Your Senators


As we said in the Guide, the person answering the phone when you call your member of Congress' office will be a staff assistant or intern. You should always ask for the Senator's legislative assistant who handles that particular issue for the Senator. In this case: health care. Often times, you'll be put through to that person's voicemail. Leave one. And then use the information below to send a follow-up email. Note: updated on July 6 to reflect new BCRA numbers.
