DC Council: Patients Need a Public Hearing on Specialty Drug Copays!

Act Now

Access to prescription drugs is important to patient health, but excessive insurer drug copays have made it difficult for patients to afford the medications that they need. There is currently a bill in the DC Council which would help reduce the financial burden felt by District patients who need specialty drugs, but the bill is stuck in Committee and a Public Hearing has yet to be scheduled. DC patients need a hearing on this bill.
