Dear Sir/ Madam
RE: Nursing Challenge If Medicaid Cuts Are Implemented
My name is (insert your names as in address above) and a leader in the Nurses Association at the St. Louis University Hospital, one of the major healthcare facilities that serve the 3rd Congressional District of Missouri and the state in general. I am the Associations’ Public Relations Representatives and communication with third parties on behalf of the Association falls under my docket. It is my responsibility to reach out to the public and other official partners to relay the intended communication, after consultations during our meetings. The aim of this letter is to reach to the office of the US Representative to highlight the plight of the Nurses Association with regard to the proposed Medicaid budgetary cuts in the 2011-2012 budgetary allocations. Specific challenges presented to the nursing service provision in the 3rd Congressional District of Missouri are the focus of the letter, which form the basis of our petition for political intervention from the US Representative’s office (govtrack.us, 1).
Healthcare provision in the 3rd Congressional District of Missouri, the entire state and indeed the whole country heavily relies on the medical provision plan outlined in the Medicaid program. A significant proportion of the population (over 10 per cent) of people in St. Louis County in which the University Hospital that we work with is situated is covered by the Medicaid program. The coverage has been below satisfaction under the current funding provision. The point of our concern is presented by the proposal by the Republican Party at the US Congress to reduce budgetary allocation for the program even under the realization of the fact that current funding is insufficient. Many citizens in the State of Missouri will be exposed to the several healthcare challenges and risks that the Republican-proposed cuts occasion to the program. In order to clarify our petition for political intervention at the US Congress, I will highlight the specific challenges as will be faced by various citizen groups thereby affecting dispensation of our mandate in healthcare provision.
