Patients Need Affordable Access to Specialty Drugs!

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. Read the OpEd on this bill featured in the Washington Post.  Patients are encouraged to contact the DC Council and share the need for affordable access to these valuable medications.

 

With more than 2,800 members, the Medical Society of the District of Columbia (MSDC) is the largest medical organization representing metropolitan Washington physicians in the District. The Medical Society is dedicated to the well-being of the physicians in metropolitan Washington and their patients. READ MORE ABOUT MSDC.
