    They can't get you a hearing sooner or intervene in decisions. In fact, administrative law says that if they step into certain proceedings at certain points in the process, there will be a presumption against your position in the case.

    But you should contact the office (the local one instead of the Washington one) and ask for the healthcare caseworker. The congressman is the best bet, but try the senators' offices, too, if needed. Be prepared to fax/mail all of your medical info, and perhaps, when you call them, have written out a short explanation of your situation and the specific request for assistance. They'll explain further what they can and will do.
