You can choose a bill (legislation) that is before Congress in Washington DC, or that is before the Massachusetts state legislature or if you live in another state, before your state legislature. The bill you choose should have implications for cost, quality, and/or access to health care.
For example, you may want to testify on a health reform bill that is before Congress, like a Medicare for All proposal. You can be for or against or recommend some modifications to the legislation.
What does the legislation do, what is your opinion and why, and what are you recommending legislators do?
At the beginning of your testimony, state clearly what the legislation does and your position on it. Are you there to speak for it, or against it, or recommend some changes? Do not assume the committee members are familiar with the legislation, so a brief explanation of what the legislation does is needed.
What is the rationale for your position? For example, why the legislation is needed, or not needed, or why it should be changed and how? In this section, you should provide supporting information for your position, including evidence, statistics, and make other cogent arguments. This should not be just about your opinion or your emotional reaction to a policy issue. You need to back up your position with facts and supporting evidence. What are its implications for improving health care? Use APA citations and references. Watch the sources you are citing – use credible sources!
Make recommendations to legislators on how you want legislators to act in relation to the legislation – oppose or support it; make changes in it or proceed with caution because of certain concerns with it that you have raised with them.
