Ask Your Senators to Support Copay Assistance
More health insurance plans are forcing people with pulmonary hypertension (PH) to pay twice for their medication. The plans require them to pay their full deductibles out of pocket while also using copay assistance. Some plans refuse to accept non-profit assistance grants to force people with expensive medications off the plan.
In the next few weeks, Congress will have an opportunity to stop these unfair policies at least through 2021 by including an Emergency Access to Marketplace Insurance provision in the next COVID-19 legislation. Ask your senators to support the provision — an important first step toward banning these burdensome, expensive practices.
