Connecticut Coalition for Lymphedema Legislation (C.C.L.L.)

The Connecticut Coalition for Lymphedema Legislation (C.C.L.L.) is a grassroots organization, compromised of professional and motivated individuals working for legislative change for persons suffering from lymphedema. We are proposing legislation that will mandate Connecticut's private insurance companies to have a yearly minimal mandatory expense for coverage of lymphedema bandages and garments.
