Visited office. Left packet for Erin.
Good Afternoon Ms. Doty,
I'm writing to follow up on my visit to Congressman Ruiz's office today. I came to follow up on several other visits the Disability Community has made to your office about the Disability Integration Act (HR2472). I left a packet at your office for you to review today and I have also attached it electronically.
The Disability Integration Act is a bill that would protect the lives and liberty of elderly and disabled Americans by ensuring their right to live in the community. Right now, many insurance companies will only cover long term services and supports in nursing facilities instead of allowing people to receive services in their own home. The Disability Integration Act would require that insurers offer options to people who need long term services and supports so that no one is unwillingly placed in a nursing home.
We are asking Congressman Ruiz to cosponsor the Disability Integration Act before session ends. Furthermore, we are anticipating an early reintroduction in January and we would love for Congressman Ruiz to commit to cosponsoring next session.
I will be on the Hill tomorrow morning and would be happy to meet with you about the bill if you have time.

On September 6, 2018, ADAPT member Cal Montgomery dropped by. Erin Doty was not available. Spoke to Alexis Sandoval-Uribe (male) the health fellow. Left information. Stressed bipartisanship, freedom, medical outcomes (Ruiz is an ER doctor) and senior and veterans issues. Seemed receptive. Alexis promised to try to attend MFP briefing later today.

On August 30th, 2018, C4CI sent an email to Erin Doty (Erin.Doty@mail.house.gov) asking why is not a cosponsor of DIA and whether the representative would commit to being an initial co-sponsor of DIA if elected to the next Congress.
