Amplify Yourself

The Amputee Coalition has launched Amplify, a new initiative to help people with limb loss and limb difference use their collective voice to bring attention to the issues so many face with their insurance providers.

We know the best prosthetic care helps people be who they want to be, yet too many people struggle to get the care they need. It’s time to speak up.

If you or someone you love has experienced challenges accessing prosthetic care – denials, lengthy appeals, or restrictions in coverage – we have a tool that can help.

Amplify Yourself and share your story with your insurance provider.


Issues That Matter

We are committed to making sure our legislators, regulators, and policymakers are educated about the needs of the limb loss and limb difference community, especially around access to care. The Amputee Coalition is addressing a broad range of issues including access to the best prosthetic care no matter where you’re located, or who provides your insurance.

Together we are inspiring support for the community during Limb Loss Awareness Month to take action and help shape the policies that affect people’s ability to thrive. Find out how you can Amplify Yourself on these and other issues below.


Share Your Story

Whatever your passion, whatever your story, amplifying yourself means something different to everyone. Whether you want to share a triumph, a frustration, or an everyday moment, we want to hear from you. We would especially like to hear if you have had challenges related to insurance or getting the medical care that fits your needs.

The time to speak out is now. Make your voice heard!
