Innovative medications and treatments are transforming patient care, but Florida patients are facing high costs for the lifesaving prescriptions they rely on. For patients living with chronic diseases, innovative treatments can help them live full, healthy lives, but the high cost of prescription medicines, harmful insurance practices, and additional barriers to care are forcing patients to choose between their health and their financial stability.
Help us support Florida patients by reducing barriers to healthcare.
Join us today and urge your legislators to help Florida patients access lifesaving treatments and medicines. Send a message to your legislator today.
Dear [Legislator Name],
High out-of-pocket costs and harmful insurance practices are keeping Florida patients from accessing the innovative care they need to live full, healthy lives. Recently, many health insurance companies have made it harder for patients to afford the medicine treatments patients reply on by enacting policies that limit the use of financial assistance. Copay accumulator adjustment programs, which are being implemented by health insurance companies across Florida, prevent patients from counting financial assistance received from other sources toward their annual out-of-pocket maximum and deductibles, leaving patients with unbearably high medical bills.
Copay accumulator adjustment programs force patients to choose between their health and financial stability. If copay assistance is denied, an otherwise stable patient might have no other option than to stop taking a lifesaving medication. Patients should not be punished for using copay assistance to afford the care they need.
As your constituent, I urge you to support policies that eliminate barriers to healthcare for Florida patients.
