If you're a resident in New York state, please click on this paragraph to contact the Governor to sign the step therapy bill, S3419C, into law! Insurers commonly use step therapy - a practice that requires patients to try and fail on a cheaper medication first, before providing coverage for the intitially prescribed medication. S3419C would enact patient protections for step therapy, notably ensuring that insurers provide expedient and transparent means for patients and providers to appeal for an exception from the step therapy protocol.
