YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!
A hearing will be held on Senate Bill 841 currently in the Pennsylvania Banking and Insurance Committee that would cap the cost sharing/co-insurance for patients who need specialty drugs at $150 per month, per drug. Specialty drugs are needed by many Pennsylvanians to treat conditions such as hemophilia, multiple sclerosis, immune deficiency, arthritis, cancer and other chronic conditions. Unfortunately, many Pennsylvania insurance companies are charging unreasonably high patient cost sharing/co-insurance for these medicines. This cost sharing can be hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month per patient, making access to these life-sustaining drugs out of reach for many Pennsylvanians. We invite all patients and advocates to attend the hearing to show their support of this important legislation!
